Seattle Weekly investigates fair-business law violations by Boeing, the world's biggest plane maker. The first story reveals that the corporation was accused of hiding flawed parts on U.S. military choppers, which the government says led to at least one fatal crash. The second story summarizes the claims against Boeing over the last two decades: illegally selling technology to overseas companies, trafficking, involvement in a major military contract-procurement scandal, bribery, and breach of supply contracts. "Boeing's latest fine sends its corporate rap sheet soaring to $100 million in the last three years," Anderson reports. Though the company has admitted some of its export law violations, it claims that "it's a mistake to think of Boeing and corruption in the same sentence," according to a quote by the vice-president of the corporation.
