|Kentucky||Michael Salyers||M||2010||Breathitt County magistrate||Vote buying||10||"When it comes to vote buying, it’s an everyday thing. ... It’s pretty much like jaywalking," admited former Breathitt County magistrate candidate Michael Salyers, who is serving time in jail for buying votes in his 2010 race. Salyers was given $500 and ended up buying about 10 votes. He would meet people seeking to sell their votes in the back room of a local store. "They would go into the machine and cast their vote...They were supposed to vote for me. They would come back to me and I would pay them for going to vote. Salyers says vote buying has been so blatant that, "you used to be able to go behind the voting machine with voters, to make sure that if you bought their vote, that they would vote the way you wanted to."||60 days in jail, 6 months home detention and 120 hours of community service.||http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/07/25/drug-money-funds-voter-fraud-in-kentu...||https://www.fbi.gov/louisville/press-releases/2012/former-candidate-for-breathit...|
