Election Bribery of Sorts

Supporters of Student Assembly presidential candidate Todd Golden '06 handed out candy and a small brochure in food court to promote their candidate. I know candidates are prohibited from negative campaigning and from sending emails with hidden recipients, but is bribery allowed? I couldn't find the EPAC rules online (in an admittedly cursory search).

This sort of candy "bribery" is allowed, but with a Presidential campaign budget of $125, I cannot imagine it being too successful.

Only diabetic third graders suffering from glucose deficiency can be bribed with candy.

I would know.
