Walmart Investigated for Corruption

Retail giant Walmart is in some serious trouble with the government. On Saturday, The New York Times published a story claiming that Walmart systematically bribed Mexican officials in order to obtain permits in the central American country. By Monday, two Democratic representatives launched an investigation into the sketchy dealings.

Congressmen Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland) and Henry Waxman (D-California) sent a letter to Walmart CEO Mike Duke to discuss these allegations in detail. Cummings told The Huffington Post, “The allegations that Wal-Mart officials in Mexico may have broken U.S. laws by bribing officials to get their stores built faster raise serious concerns." Legally, Walmart may have violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a federal law that prohibits bribery of foreign officials.
