Any bargain, the tendency of which is to lead a public official, or one subject to a private duty to violate his duty for money or favor, is opposed to public policy. Bargains of this sort may concern legislators, public officers, officers or stockholders of corporations, trustees, agents, and servants, and even private individuals.
