What’s Right? Walmart’s Words vs. Walmart’s Political Priorities

A new report from Walmart Watch examines the political expenditures of Walmart's political action committee, Walmart stores Inc. PAC for Responsible Government, which makes contributions to candidates and other political action committees at multiple levels of government. While companies are not permitted to contribute directly to candidates at the federal level and thus act through political action committees, they are able to contribute in state elections, an opportunity Walmart regularly seizes.

Walmart Watch seeks to hold walmart fully accountable for its impact on communities, the American workforce, the retail sector, the environment and the nation's economy.
