hearing-aid-bribe

Almost all bribes involve money. But a hearing aid
bribe?
Yes, it took place in Florida some years ago.
A political group wanted state legislators to pass
a bill for them.
This political group bribed state legislators
with free hearing aids. It did not matter if legislators
were hearing or deaf.
125 legislators accepted hearing aids. Two “honest”
legislators turned it down.
It is not fair; poor deaf people in Florida cannot
afford hearing aids; rich hearing legislators that
do not need hearing aids still accept it as a bribe!
