    A Virginia Democratic organization appears to have violated federal election law by offering free beer to voters. The Arlington Young Democrats held a happy hour last week at which they offered "a free drink and some appetizers" to anyone who brought an "I Voted" stick to prove that he or she had voted early in Virginia, according to a flier.

    Sounds more like George Washington although I believe he was smarter in that he tied the beer to the correct vote. :p
