Word: Requite

Requite [Verb]

Sentence: Mr. Doolittle sits on the Appropriations Committee, to which lobbyists and special interests have an attraction that borders on Pavlovian. No great drumbeating is needed to fill those campaign kitties. Like other lawmakers, Mr. Doolittle indulges ”earmarking” — the odious practice of delivering government contracts to favored pleaders who often requite with campaign contributions.
