Viagra in exchange for your vote

BANGKOK (AFP) - Parliamentary candidates in Thailand's upcoming election are trying to buy the votes of elderly men by passing out free Viagra, a local government official said Friday.

Thais head to the polls on December 23 for the first time since the military toppled the elected prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra in a bloodless coup last year.

Residents in Prathumthani, on the northern outskirts of Bangkok, reported some of the candidates were passing out doses of the anti-impotence drug in exchange for promised votes, said Sayan Nopkham, a local government official.

I guess I have heard it all now about vote buying. In Malaysia, money as little as RM 20 (about US $ 7.50) buys you a vote. Viagra?

Viagra is definitely more valuable for elderly male voters! It costs about RM 45 a pill so a couple of those blue pills will definitely be plenty for elderly Thai men! Plenty enough to buy their votes, I guess! I can't blame these elderly men either for coming back for more! :-)
