Another United States senator has joined ThinkProgress’ call for a Department of Justice and SEC investigation of News Corporation. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) writes:

I am writing to express my deep concern regarding allegations that News Corporation and its subsidiaries bribed foreign law enforcement officials for information to advance their business interests. If true, these allegations may be a violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977. [...] Further investigation may reveal that current reports only scratch the surface of the problem at News Corporation. Accordingly, I am requesting that the DOJ and the SEC examine these circumstances and determine whether U.S. laws have been violated.
