Buying votes in Windham County  

Credit:  Rutland Herald | October 08, 2016 | www.rutlandherald.com ~~

This is unbelievable. Iberdrola, the giant corporate conglomerate based in Spain that develops wind turbine sites around the world, declared to the people of Windham at a meeting there Tuesday that, if the majority of voters in that town vote to approve a large wind turbine development there, Iberdrola will directly pay each registered voter there, not landowners, not residents, but voters, over $1,000 a year for 20 years.

Apparently, this is how business is conducted in Spain, which has a corrupt, hardly functioning government. Big money throughout little Vermont has now found a fantastic way to promote, defeat or get anything they want by simply guaranteeing to pay the voters afterward if the vote goes their way.
