Here’s How a CEO Senate Candidate Responded to Charges of Wrongdoing on Her Corporate Watch (Hint: It’s Not Linda McMahon)

The Associated Press reports that investigators in Russia, Germany, and the U.S. are looking into bribes in Europe by Hewlett-Packard Co. officials, totaling $11 million, about seven years ago during Carly Fiorina’s tenure as CEO. Fiorina is now running for the Republican nomination for a U.S. Senate seat in California.

Fiorina told the AP that she pleased there is an investigation.

“She said she believes it’s the job of a CEO to set an ethical tone at the top and to investigate thoroughly allegations of fraud or illegality. ‘My track record on both priorities is very clear,’ she said. ‘I have fired people all throughout my career for engaging in illegal or unethical behavior.’”
