Ok I can kind of see how this has become political fodder:

The path that led to Schilling to this uncomfortable situation began at a fundraiser two years ago, where former Rhode Island Gov. Don Carcieri suggested that Schilling move his video game company from Massachusetts to Rhode Island. The idea was to bring jobs in and turn the state into a video game hub. Carcieri even offered Schilling financial help, in the form of a state loan.
So Schilling was helping the previous gov at a fundraiser when this payola was offered to him - I can see how this might look like political cronyism to some.
