Gip barrel politics was a political term for Senators who used Republic spendings to help their home sector. The first known usage of this word came when a Bartokk Senator took from away several million credits from the government to build a main hive for his people on Bartokk III.
Many of the Senators who supported the Native Help Act were hoping that by voting yes on it, their sector would gain a fleet in return.
