Bribe

Title

Bribe

Description

"“The Fighting Pencil” group, 1969
—A bribe?!.. Never!..
—A present? Quite another matter…

The cartoon “unmasked” those officials that took “gifts” of money or in kind as a payment for services or favors, justifying their actions with a rationale that a “gift” was not a bribe, and, therefore, their conscience was clean."
