Student tries to sell vote on eBay

PHOENIX, Ariz. Now, one Arizona State University student is reconsidering his offer to sell his vote.

Craig Kessler, a junior at ASU, figured since it's his vote, he could sell it on eBay.

By Sunday evening, he had a modest offer of $2.25.

"Basically, whoever pays the highest amount, will tell me who to vote for, and I will go into the polling booth on Tuesday and go vote for that candidate," Kessler said.

A University of Minnesota student was prosecuted recently for making the same offer. Once Kessler found out selling a vote is against the law, he said he was withdrawing his offer.
