|Kentucky||Kenneth Day (former Clay County Republican commissioner of Board of Elections)||M||R||Vote buying||Kenneth Day serving 18 years in federal prison for multimillion-dollar drug trafficking. Prosecutors say he dealt in "millions of dollars in drugs, marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamine” and “had developed one of the most successful drug trafficking businesses in the whole entire region.” Day admitted on the stand to “selling tons of marijuana” and hundreds of thousands of dollars of cocaine every other week. He also dealt in votes. "I bought my first vote with half a pint of liquor," Day testified. He described how that mushroomed to a seemingly routine method to buy protection from politicians and win their elections. He said he even bought votes for the sheriff. "That showed people on the ground who had the power and who had the money to buy the votes," Day testified. "As time went on, $5 a vote, $10 a vote. I have paid as high as $800 a vote. ... Election after election, day in and day out, every election I ever worked, it went on." Day was not only an admitted drug trafficker, but he also had served as the longtime Clay County Republican commissioner of the Board of Elections.||http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/07/25/drug-money-funds-voter-fraud-in-kentu...|
