Wisconsin: Wal-Mart pays $1253 fine for campaign violation

The Wisconsin State Journal reports: Retail giant Wal-Mart has agreed to settle a civil forfeiture action stemming from its failure to register with the Monroe city clerk before a 2005 referendum on so-called big box stores, in violation of state campaign finance law.

Wal-Mart agreed to pay the maximum fine of $500 plus fees and assessments for a total of $753, Dane County District Attorney Brian Blanchard said Monday. -- Wisconsin State Journal

My comment: Don't you expect that $1253 will really sting the largest corporation in the world?
