Once again, your accusation does not appear to fit the definition:

in·flu·ence ped·dling
the use of position or political influence on someone's behalf in exchange for money or favors.

No money changed hands that I am aware of. Certainly my endorsement of Bernadette was not based on any exchange of money or favors. I asked her to run because I believed in good faith that she would be an excellent contributor to the ARIN board. I endorsed her candidacy for the same reason.
