PM Seeking Legal Advice

So she should

Prime Minister Helen Clark is seeking advice on whether Winston Peters should hand over the $100,000 donated by shipping billionaire Owen Glenn under rules requiring ministers to disclose gifts.
Miss Clark told Parliament she wanted to know if the donation, to help pay Mr Peters' legal bills from his failed court bid to overturn the 2005 Tauranga result, counted as a gift under the Cabinet Manual.

If it was not a gift what was it - a bribe???
