Does Wal-Mart Have Government Influence?

I completely missed this little gem from Sirotablog.

Maryland Gov. Bob Ehrlich (R) just after vetoing legislation that would require Wal-Mart to provide its workers with more adequate benefits.

Who's that shady looking character behind Gov. Ehrlich? None other than Wal-Mart VP Mr. Eduardo Castro-Wright.

Surely, Gov. Bob didn't get anything from Wal-Mart!

How about the Wal-Mart sweetheart deal with the federal Labor Department over child labor allegations?
...the agreement granted Wal-Mart privileged treatment by giving it 15 days’ notice of future investigations of any wage-and- hour complaints applied only to complaints alleging child labor violations.
