The New Jersey Star-Ledger Editorial Board demanded; Criminal Investigation Needed Into Wal-Mart's Mexico's Bribery Scandal.
Citing a New York Times investigative article, the editors said, "Wal-Mart de Mexico slipped cash-stuffed envelopes — more than $24 million worth — to corrupt officials to speed construction of new stores." This, say the editors, explains "at least part of the company’s south-of-the-border success."
Saying the penalties for such "crimes" are way too weak, the editors called for a "knockout Punch" against Wal-Mart and other "corporate felons," including massive fines and jail time.
