While walking   down the street one day a Corrupt Senator was tragically hit
by a car and   died.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

“Welcome to   heaven,” says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there
is a   problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see,   so
we’re not sure what to do with you.”

“No problem, just let me   in,” says the Senator.

“Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from the   higher ups. What we’ll do is
have you spend one day in hell and one in   heaven. Then you can choose where
to spend eternity.”

“Really?, I’ve   made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,” says the Senator.

“I’m sorry,   but we have our rules.”

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the   elevator and he goes down, down,
down to hell.

The doors open and he   finds himself in the middle of a green golf   course. In
the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it   are all his friends
and other politicians who had worked with   him..

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet   him, shake
his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while   getting rich at
the expense of the people. They played a friendly game of   golf and then dine
on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.

Also   present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having   a
good time dancing and telling jokes.

They are all having such a   good time that before the Senator realizes it, it
is time to   go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator   rises…

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven   where St. Peter
is waiting for him, “Now it’s time to visit   heaven..”

So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of   contented souls
moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing.   They have a good
time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by   and St. Peter

“Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and   another in heaven. Now choose
your eternity.”

The Senator reflects   for a minute, then he answers: “Well, I would never
have said it before, I   mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would
be better off in   hell.”

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down,   down to

Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the   middle of a barren land
covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his   friends, dressed in rags,
picking up the trash and putting it in black bags   as more trash falls from

The devil comes over to him and puts   his arm around his shoulders.

“I don’t understand,” stammers the   Senator. “Yesterday I was here and there
was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and   caviar, drank
champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just   a wasteland
full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What   happened?”

The devil smiles at him and says,   “Yesterday we   were campaigning, Today, you voted…”
