Come Vote and Get Cheese

Business week has a writeup on dirty tricks in the May 17th Primary in Philadelphia. A woman wrote up flyers for two democratic candidates that offered free cheese to voters and then passed them around her housing project, of which she is the tenant council president. I don't think this would have been bad, had she included all the candidates on the flyer, but why limit it to just the two Democrats? I am all for getting out the vote, but bribing voters and then advocating a candidate (or a party of candidates) just seems wrong.
