In recent years the federal government has stepped up prosecution of state and local corruption with particular focus on bribery involving state and local officials.
These prosecutions have not been limited only to egregious cases involving performance of official acts in return for payment, but have also extended to prosecutions of city and state officials who passively accept gratuities and small payments.
Federal prosecutors will also utilize RICO and mail fraud laws in addition to the bribery statute to aggressively pursue official corruption.
