Pay to play refers to a systematic form of corruption in which businessmen are expected to give campaign donations in exchange for state government contracts. In 2009, allegations of it forced New Mexico governor Bill Richardson to withdraw as Obama's nominee for Secretary of Commerce. In 2008, Illinois governor and Obama associate Rod Blagojevich was removed from office under similar allegations.
