collude \kuh-LOOD\, intransitive verb:
To act in concert; to conspire; to plot.

More perniciously still, well-heeled contributors and interest groups that seek political power routinely collude with needy office-seekers to find new paths around the hollow contribution limits.
-- Max Frankel, "You Can't Dam the Money", New York Times Magazine, February 20, 2000
