Not all quid pro quo are bribes.

Dolores Huerta is the president of the Dolores Huerta foundation. That foundation has received significant financial support from the Clinton foundation.

I have no doubt that Clinton and Huerta have a long relationship, and I'm sure that the work done by the DHF is worthy of support. Although I agree that it is hyperbolic to call the Clinton Foundation's financial support of the Dolores Huerta foundation "a bribe", the fact that Huerta takes no salary from her foundation isn't a sufficient defense from allegations that her independence is compromised.

I run a small nonprofit, much smaller than Huerta's, and I can tell you that if you want my vigorous support for what you're doing, it would be infinitely more effective to support my nonprofit than to simply offer me a bribe.

Am I happy about Scalia's death?

No, but I am better off because of it.
