    If I'm not mistaken, only if the purpose of the bribe is to influence the bribee to withhold their public, professional, legal duties in certain matters, otherwise it is case specific.

    Which part of U.S. law says about it? A citation?
    I'm not from the US, but that is how I understand it from a professional standpoint in Singapore. However, a simple google search yielded the following you may find helpful.

    18 USC Chapter 11 - BRIBERY, GRAFT, AND CONFLICTS OF INTEREST | Title 18 - Crimes and Criminal Procedure | U.S. Code | LII / Legal Information Institute

    Your opening post is an unusual and rather intriguing situation, Stanley514, though I would expect that more details are required before anyone could venture an opinion on whether the circumstances constitute persecution or are in contravention of a law.

    Economic and mental influence would safely capture virtually all advertising, I am thinking...

    Ok from the question the answer is it is legal to pay/bribe someone to do anything you want providing the thing you want them to do is not either against the law or an abuse public office/religious office depending their position ect... That's issue one.

    The second issue regarding your question is could such action be sanctioned to a criminal charge as a form of persecution, this is somewhat more of a complicated issue and require proving to law enforcement personnel that i.) Someone is actually being persecuted, ii.) that the said action to use payment to procure the services of someone else into avoiding contact/communication with the person being persecutated does indeed form some of the basis for the said persecution. This would be very hard to convince law enforcement of without evidence of a specific targeted campaign by the person procuring the services of others against the person claiming to have been persecuted.

    But also private legal action may result in criminal charges being made if the victim is successful with private civil litigation and may be instigated, by the judge, public prosecutors or law enforcement officers directly, after civil proceedings.

    But it's very hard to prove, especially so with multiple parties involved and probrably very expensive and certainly any potential result would be open to interpretation of the case specifics governing what may or may not actually constitute persecution or more likely harassment.
