    I hope the story has legs, 'cause yeah … OTOH, you can't do business in Russia without bribing people. So we'll see who does a better job demagoguing this scandal :-D

      Just saw this on TPM:

      Yesterday I noted that Russia and Germany were investigating alleged bribery by HP executives back in 2003 when now-Senate candidate Carly Fiorina was the company's CEO. The alleged bribery was part of an effort to secure a major contract with the Russian government. Now comes news that the Securities and Exchange Commission is joining the investigation as part of their jurisdiction under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The Journal says it's "part of a widening probe into the company's activities."

      I can't see how that's a good thing for Fiorina's Senate campaign.
