During by-elections... The Karaoke PAYS YOU to sing!

Is this song-buying or vote-buying? I reckon this deserves a big HMMMM... from the Election Commission. According to Sun2surf...

At about 200m from a DAP centre at Machap Baru flat, MCA also organised an open-air karaoke session for the villagers.

According to a party worker, the response was overwhelming and that some 40 residents who had registered to participate were limited to sing only half of their songs due to time constraints.

Each of them would be given RM20 as a token of appreciation for singing in the karaoke session which is very popular among the households here.

Before the karaoke started, Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam, MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting and Youth chief Datuk Liow Tiong Lai had given about two hours of speeches to garner support of the people in the by-election.

Well, when it's orchestrated by BN, it's called anything but money politics. Try having the oppositions pulling off the same hat trick
