Ukrainian 'Votes For Sale'

Cynicism just might have peaked among Ukrainians ahead of the looming presidential election.

Says Reuters:

Several offers have appeared on the Internet from disenchanted citizens in the ex-Soviet republic who say they are ready to sell their votes in the Jan. 17 election for president.

"I don't believe in our democracy and so I am selling my vote in the elections. Maybe there will be 10 other votes for sale. The only discussion on price will be upwards," said one Internet advertisement from Lviv in western Ukraine.
