5.) The Rep From Arkansas
Former Democratic State Rep. Hudson Hallum, his father, and a few campaign workers were caught red-handed trying to rig an election.

Their scheme involved bribing absentee voters with chicken dinners and vodka and going on to tamper with already filled-in ballots.

Their con ended abruptly after police were tipped off. 

Ex-Rep. Hallum's received the harshest sentence: one year home detention and three years probation. The court also imposed a $20,000 fine and 100 hours of community service.
