OriginEdit

Bobby Baker was a former Democratic Party organizer and advisor to Lyndon Johnson, serving as Secretary to the Senate Majority Leader. Baker, along with several friends and known gangsters, formed the Serv-U Corporation in 1962 to provide vending machines for government funded companies. The FBI heard Baker’s name come up in criminal chatter the next year, and investigated his business dealings. Baker was accused of bribery and sexual coercion to receive votes, and spent 18 months imprisoned for tax evasion. Although Johnson was not involved in any of Baker’s illicit activities, investigations were stopped after his unplanned ascension to presidency.

EffectsEdit

Still marked at 1963 prices, the vendor never gives back change. Instead, each snack imparts the desire to perpetrate white-collar crimes. Embezzlement chips, blackmail bars and fraud gum are all available for the overworked employee to enjoy. Some snacks also give a certain intuition on how to operate, although the distribution seems random. Besides disobeying the law, the user will suffer from an identity crisis. Private facets of their personality will surface in activities where they would normally be suppressed.
