The group sent a letter last week asking commissioners to say whether they've taken campaign contributions from Walmart or Selig Enterprises, which owns Suburban Plaza in North Decatur, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

From the story:

In its letter to Selig, the group stated, “Good Growth DeKalb would like to understand the possible political and financial influence that Walmart is exerting in Georgia," according to a news release from the group. "Towards that end, we are requesting that local politicians divulge any financial support received from Walmart. We are requesting that Walmart provide similar details regarding its contributions to local politicians. We have asked for responses by June 1st.”

If you haven't been paying attention to the international Walmart timeline lately, they've been struggling with some revelations about alleged bribery by the company in Mexico.
