It seems absurd to me that a state politician would be unclear on the ethics of giving and receiving gifts to officials, even if the Kindle was a very popular gift this past Christmas. Of course, what seems even more absurd is the idea of using a sub-$200 ereader for bribe. Clearly an iPad is a more appropriate prison official gift, or at the very least he could have bumped it up to a Nook Color.
