The Wall Street Journal has an excellent little summary piece of how VECO Corporation bribed politicians in Alaska as a normal part of doing business. (WSJ article here)
Where the WSJ article fails, is that it doesn’t mention the fact that VECO had a 10-year relationship with many BLP politicians in Barbados – where it built the oil terminal and the new Barbados prison.
Jim Carlton wrote the WSJ article. Perhaps someone should send him an email telling him to turn his thoughts to Barbados. Here we don’t have any crooked politicians. That must be true because former Attorney General Dale Marshall “investigated” the VECO bribery charges in Alaska for about 15 minutes and then announced that VECO had been on the up and up with Barbados so there was no need for a more formal inquiry.
