House Dems to investigate Wal-Mart bribery allegations

“The New York Times report, which is based on thousands of documents and interviews with company officials, raises serious questions about potential violations of United States law, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act,” Cummings and Waxman wrote in their Monday letter.

Bloomberg also reported Monday that the Arkansas retail titan had become the subject of a Justice Department criminal probe.

As part of their investigation, Waxman and Cummings also said they are reaching out to former Wal-Mart executives mentioned in The Times story.
