In another historic first for the emerging crypto-currency, including the sale of a mansion and another of a Tesla automobile, the first U.S. politician sold his vote for bitcoin late Wednesday afternoon.
Senator Herb S. Perb, Undecided, DC announced today that he had received the bribe, delivered under a table at La Pueblo! on E. Hamilton Street in Washington D.C., earlier this afternoon.
"It was pretty easy, and no fees!" The senator announced in a press conference "I just got the wallet address and boom! I've got the money. No more slender bulging briefcases. No more checking for nonsequential bills. My bribe is there where I want it. Damn the banks. Damn them to hell."
