Letter K- Kickbacks

A kickback is a fancy term for bribes.

A kickback occurs when a person makes a payment or an offering of services with the intent to gain something from an individual, a  business or a politician. 

Political kickbacks are used to secure influence over voting by offering campaign contributions or other services.

As I mentioned last week, I have been inundated with a plethora of unanticipated - home, work, and family obligations. I was unable to post on Friday or Saturday. My catch up plan is this: I will post both K and L entries today (Sunday) and be back on track for Monday's letter "M" post. Next week I will resume my legal hypothetical questions and games.  I will have four $25 Amazon gift card winners during my post for the letters "M-R", so check back for a chance to win.

My apologies for not visiting your blogs. I will start visiting again tonight and all next week.

I could go for some kickbacks! Why is it that the little guys are never the ones to get them? It's good to find you through the A-Z Challenge. I'm a new follower :)

LA is a great place to get experience in kickbacks.

I was reading the bit about your book: are there any non-corrupt Parishes?

I've heard about kickbacks before, but don't know anyone involved in it.

There has been a lot more focus on this in business since the Sarbanes-Oxley came to pass. You almost can't accept a lunch offering from an account. Good word for K, Melissa.
