Re: So?

Elected officials will stop accepting bribes at about the same time as (take your pick):
--lasting peace in the Middle East.
--A gay Pope is elected.
--Muslims, Christians, and Jews live together in harmony.
--Aliens land in any city on earth.
--There are no more hungry people on earth.
etc.

Bribes are simply a part of politics. There is no way to avoid it. There will always be a way around any election laws any government can pass.

True, but I am just pointing out that elected officials' behavior, and not the behavior of these companies is the reason that bribes take place.
