Sign of the times – see the full article for more

Ah, bribery in the age of the Internet. This sort of feels like a Shouts & Murmurs piece.

Found on the Washington classified ads site:

For Sale/Barter,

Slightly used United States Senate seat. Only one owner this term, though rarely present — like new. Illinois ties preferred.

Must be willing to barter 1/2 million in monetary compensation, and employment (either government or nonprofit, preferably the latter) for myself and my wife.
