I don't know the ethics rules very well, but I do know that there is a massive firewall between the legislative work of a congressional office and the election campaign. It just strikes me as odd, to say the least, that a member of Congress would (could) openly horse trade support for legislation in exchange for support in their re-election.
One could argue that you're buying votes, and selling legislation.
Either way, it just sounds creepy.
