Votes in Texas Town Allegedly Bought With Beer and Cigarettes

August 14, 2013

A dirt-poor Texas town has been rocked by a federal investigation into charges that votes for a school board election were bought with a few dollars worth of beer and cigarettes, accusations that surfaced just days before the school board president reportedly hanged himself.

The arrest of three people and the suicide came as the FBI pressed its investigation into alleged vote buying in Donna, Texas, a town so poor that some homes do not have electricity or running water.
