Walmart Breaks Rules, Then Seeks to Change Them

It’s becoming increasingly clear that, after Walmart allegedly violated federal law by bribing Mexican officials, it began working behind the scenes to weaken the very law that it allegedly broke. Sure, this is a violation of the company’s internal ethics policy (“Never cover up or ignore an ethics problem”). However, if the allegations are true, Walmart also appears to have violated the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
