Bribery is the granting of political favors in return for something of value. This does not include political contributions, nor does it include favoring one's own commercial interests, or the interests of family members. The Bush Administration has not been accused of taking bribes, but has been accused of extensive and often improper action on behalf of legal corporate donors in industries such as oil, coal, pharmaceuticals, and timber, and of Saudi Arabia, which works closely with The Carlyle Group. President's father, George Herbert Walker Bush has worked for Carlyle as Senior Adviser.
