The difference between lobbying and bribery is, lobbying has more to do with politics and can involve persuasions in more ways than giving money; bribery is more finances based. “A briber wants to circumvent the law. A lobbyist wants to change it.” “The fact that laws affect everyone supposedly makes lobbying more legitimate, since the lobbyist isn't typically asking for special treatment the way a briber does. But maybe that's the problem. Someone who pays a bribe might be rich, powerful and dangerous, but they're also uniquely vulnerable. They open themselves to extortion by the corrupt official they're using…The lobbyist takes no such risk. The lobbyist's goal is to make the government official depend on them for financing and support in elections. A bribe works once. Cajoling or inducing a congressional representative to help get a law changed is the gift that keeps on giving.” (APA, 2010, P.2)
