Behested Payments

behested payment is a payment made to a third party at the request of a government official. Behested payments are made principally for legislative, governmental, or charitable purposes, rather than for personal or campaign purposes. Generally, a payment is made at the behest of an official if it is requested, solicited, or suggested by the official or his agent, or otherwise made to a person in cooperation, consultation, coordination with, or with the consent of, the official.
