Wal-Mart targeted in election complaint

CHICAGO Labor groups asked the Federal Election Commission yesterday to look into whether Wal-Mart Stores Inc. broke the law during company meetings with store managers where it warned about the consequences of a proposed labor law backed by Democrats.

At issue is whether Wal-Mart s discussion of the law, which would ease unionizing, amounted to an effort to dissuade employees from voting for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. Wal-Mart denies that it tried to influence voting.

Among groups filing the action were WakeUpWalmart.com and the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations.
