Def: Giving jobs or favors to a relative.
Synonym: Business as usual
Derivation: The name comes from the Nepot Dome Scandal which happened a long time ago in Wyoming. Dick Cheney was not involved even though it happened in his back yard. A bunch of government contracts for oil-drilling were given to relatives of someone named Prescott Walker or something like that. Democrats thought this was bad even though it contributed to our national security and they hounded the Republican president at the time about it.
