Sure, I see the difference. I just don't know how it's a bribe to pay to influence someone who is not a public official. If I give the matre d a $20 to get a table at a crowded restaurant, it's not remotely illegal because that person is not a public official. Is it different when you add a few zeroes? And why is it perfectly ok to just claim Native American heritage to bypass the need to give monetary gifts? Obviously, anyone who takes money to influence their professional behavior should be subject to whatever sanctions their employer decides on. And in this case, it'd certainly be termination. I just don't see how this is a federal crime.
