BROOKSHIRE, TX — Allegations of voter fraud are shaking things up in the small town of Brookshire. There are some serious allegations, including offers of crack in return for a vote.

A woman who did not want to be identified says she was paid to vote for Mayor Keith Woods -- in crack.

"We just don't operate like that," insisted Brookshire Mayor Keith Woods. "I hire a lot of people to do a lot of work, but as far as us going and buying some type of drugs… That is just crazy."

Change that to *public officials* as policy makers all levels - elected and appointed ~ take big interest-sponsored junkets.

This sounds a bit far-fetched to me. It seems like there would be much easier ways to buy votes than this. Heck, just drum up some dead voter's names if you have to. I'm a hard-core cynical pessimist, and yet this story has my BS meter bouncing off the chart. It's the kind of story that just sounds a little too... fabricated.

Well, Channel 13 (the Houston ABC affiliate) is not known for their journalistic virtues, a la many local news channels anywhere. This story has yet to appear elsewhere – the Houston Chronicle, CNN, other local channels, etc.
