This occurs most often in the form of bribery, which is defined in N.H. Rev. Stat. Ann. §640:2 as offering or giving any amount of pecuniary benefit to a public official to influence their behavior, or to accept or agree to accept such benefit as a public official in exchange for a change in behavior.

Public corruption can also include abuse of office as defined in N.H. Rev. Stat. Ann. §643.Abuse of office is a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of $2,000.
