Oh, and don’t miss this from the local paper: a flip article about selling votes on eBay:

“[A friend and I] were just talking about how the Democratic race has gotten pretty ridiculous,” Yasin said. “I mean it’s good healthy competition, but I just feel like it has become a bidding war.” The conversation sparked Yasin to put her vote for sale on E-bay, and while she said she only laughed about it at first, the vote was up for anyone to buy on April 4.

Ben Mazur, senior in religious studies, said he remembers the moment Yasin put the vote online. “She called me before she set it all up and said, ‘Check your e-mail in about half an hour. I’m about to do something really funny,‘” Mazur said.
