Romney Held Stock In Walmart’s Embattled Mexican Subsidiary

His blind trust sold the shares in 2010. The New York Times uncovered a massive bribery scandal.

Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney made thousands of dollars off investments in the embattled, Walmart de Mexico, according to tax filings flagged by a Democratic operative.

Romney held shares of the Walmart subsidiary through his family’s blind trusts and his family charity between 2006 and 2010, IRS records show. Walmart de Mexico’s top executives were implicated in a damning New York Times report last month alleging bribery of Mexican officials by company executives to obtain permits in violation of U.S. and Mexican law.

Romney didn’t maintain direct control of the funds, and may not even have known that he had money invested in the company. But they are the latest in a string of investments to draw scrutiny, including millions of dollars in overseas bank accounts.
