The trend of money politics in the electoral process also affected ideological voters. There are ways used by ideological voters to reinterpret political money seduction from legislative candidates or non-ideological parties. This paper aims to describe how ideological voters participate in general election contest while attempting to give victory to their ideological party. This paper also illustrates how the ideological voter mobilizers gain votes from their ideological party. In order to understand this phenomenon, this study is based on the 2014 legislative elections held in Wotan Village, Panceng District, Gresik Regency. This location is selected as the object of the study mainly because in this village there are two equally strong community organizations (NU and Muhammadiyah), so the tendency to be ideological to certain ideological parties is very strong. One of the most important findings is that there is an effort to interpret money politics as a political charity, in addition to the emergence of pseudo-pragmatism among these ideological voters.
