WASHINGTON — The Congressional probe into the alleged bribery scandal involving Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s subsidiary in Mexico widened on Wednesday.
The two lawmakers heading the investigation requested information from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Retail Industry Leaders Association, both of which have or have had Wal-Mart executives on their boards. The Congressmen expressed concerns over a lobbying campaign allegedly aided by those groups and the retailer that sought to amend the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a law that makes it illegal to bribe foreign government officials.
