‘Blow Jobs for Hillary Clinton Voters’ Campaign Is Probably Illegal

Madonna was the first to make the promise.

Now, a couple of adult film stars, Angela Castro (of a movie, or something, called Boob Science) and Maggie Green (star of Miami MILFs 2), have joined together to launch an official campaign: They say they’ll give a blow job to anyone who votes against Donald Trump in the Presidential election.

They even have a top-notch promotional video (which is obviously NSFW) filmed in someone’s apartment, in front of a closet. In it, they explain that the bargain is simple. “Vote against the orange clown,” Castro says, and the two will make good on their end of the deal, subject to a few specific provisions, including a Trump loss:

To qualify for a BJ fans must follow both Angelina Castro and Maggie Green on Twitter and vote against Trump. Details on how to collect the BJs if Trump loses the election will be posted on TeamBJ.com three days after the election day. The girls are tentatively planning Inauguration Day to deliver on their promise.

But, of course, Angela and Maggie (and Madonna, *shudder*) aside, the question is: Can you actually trade your vote for a sexual favor? The answer isn’t as clear-cut as you might think.

It’s considered a violation of Federal law to trade anything of value for a vote. According to Article 52 of the US Code, any exchange of money, goods or services for a vote—or voter registration, for that matter—is a serious offense. It’s likely, based on the law, that even the offer of payment, financial or otherwise, is likely illegal, and could lead to a Federal prison sentence of at least five years, or a fine of more than $10,000. Or both.

Another section of Federal law, though, goes a bit further in exactly what constitutes an offer for payment. 42 USCS § 1973i(c) of the U.S. Code says the bribe has to have monetary value. So while things like cold hard cash, liquor, and lottery tickets might be problematic, sexual favors might not be.

But while Madonna probably doesn’t make money on her various extracurricular activities, Angela and Maggie are part of the sex industry—and their comparative sexual prowess does happen to earn them money. I’ve never seen Miami MILFs 2, but I assume that Maggie both performed the Trump program’s signature reward on screen in it, and earned some take-home pay for it.

It is, of course, unlikely that the Justice Department is going to go after either of these adult film stars for their election-altering promises. So go for it America. Or go at it.

Or something.
