… Do the Democrats understand the meaning of the word “Bribery” …

… the difference between a campaign contribution and an out – an – out bribe is a narrow one … one is given to help support an candidate , or an officeholder ‘ s campaign , the other is given to deliberately subvert the rule of law , and favour one ‘ s self..

.. defined ..Bribery is an act of giving money or gift giving that alters the behavior of the recipient. Bribery constitutes a crime and is defined by Black’s Law Dictionary as the offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting of any item of value to influence the actions of an official or other person in charge of a public or legal duty.   The bribe is the gift bestowed to influence the recipient’s conduct. It may be any money, good, right in action, property, preferment, privilege, emolument, object of value, advantage, or merely a promise or undertaking to induce or influence the action, vote, or influence of a person in an official or public capacity.[1]   In economics, the bribe has been described as rent. Bribery in bureaucracy has been viewed as a reason for the higher cost of production of goods and services.

.. right now , the Senate Democrats are , or have gone waaay over the line . Byron York is a fantastic writer for the Washington Examiner , and a veteran of the American Spectator , among other publications . He has picked up on two pieces from the liberal blog , “Plum Line , ” written by Washington Post writer Greg Sargent . I link to them [here] and [here] . Campaign contributions are one thing . I support their deregulation , but also their disclosure .

… What Saergant is describing though , is out-and-out Bribery !
