A campaign manager for a Hidalgo County Commissioner bought cocaine and gave it to the two women so they could use it to entice voters.

Both women were part of a large year and a half long FBI investigation into election corruption in Hidalgo County that began in January 2013. The women were paid campaign workers, also known as politiqueras, who targeted low income areas and elderly individuals enticing them to vote for a particular candidate. Saldivar was sentenced to eight months in prison and two years of supervised release.||*Plea deal: 8 months in prison plus 2 years of supervised release||https://www.scribd.com/doc/238315278/Politi-Quera||https://www.fbi.gov/sanantonio/press-releases/2014/two-campaign-workers-admit-to...||http://www.breitbart.com/Texas/2014/09/1/Court-Records-Accuse-Democrats-Of-Using...||http://www.themonitor.com/news/local/donna-politiqueras-sentenced-after-buying-v...|
