Quid pro quo is Latin for "Something for Something" and refers to asking for something from somebody who will a benefit in return.

When used in the context of requests on government officials, almost any "quid pro quo" is illegal. For example, the Rod Blagojevich seat-selling scandal was a "quid pro quo" that resulted in a lengthy prison sentence for the (pro-abortion) former governor of Illinois.
