The elements of bribery includes -
 The individual being bribed is a public official, which includes rank-and- file federal employees
on up to elected officials
 A thing of value has been offered, whether it's tangible (such as cash) or intangible (such as the
promise of influence or official support)
 There is an official act that may be influenced by a bribe (such as pending legislation that may
have a direct impact on the party offering the bribe)
 The public official has the authority or power to commit the official act (for instance, the
official is a senator who is voting on a particular piece of legislation)
 There must be the establishment of intent on the part of the bribing party to get a desired result
(the intent to sway the vote by handing over an envelope full of cash)
 The prosecution must establish a causal connection between the payment and the act.
