You've got to get elected to Congress first, James

Then you can sell your vote! From Elyria, Ohio:
An Elyria man, James Pengov, needed money for medical bills and offered on eBay to sell his vote.

His offer was online just 12 hours before authorities were alerted and yanked it.

Pengov says he didn't know that selling a vote is illegal.
The article doesn't say how high the bidding had gotten. I'm guessing the Bush and Kerry campaigns had already bid it up into the thousands. He's in Ohio, after all. (Via Michelle)
