The cogs of the political machine

An Al-Jazeera video showing how politicians buy votes from the poor through punteros (middlemen), how they manage to confirm that those votes were actually cast, how much they pay, and how politicians hire people to fill their meetings and cheer for them... No less sickening because we've always known this is so.
