This kind of stuff makes it very difficult for us fiction writers. The story is so outlandish to be almost unbelievable. But what I find fascinating is how far this guy got. I'm a pretty quiet guy - don't like to draw a lot of attention to myself. I'm not a power player. I'm not a guy that steps on people to get where I want to go. What makes another human think in their mind that what he is doing is okay? That, yeah, I'll sell a senate seat and I'll sleep just fine. The only answer I can come up with is that his brain is broken. That he has something organically wrong in that head of his. Wow. Just can't get my head around this as it's so foreign from the way I think.
