Google Gets Political




The Chronicle has details of Google’s efforts to raise its political profile on Capitol Hill.

Google filed paperwork Thursday to register its political action committee, Google NetPAC, with the Federal Election Commission. The company intends to use the committee “to support candidates who promote an open and free Internet for our users,” according to Alan Davidson, Google’s Washington policy counsel.

    Thx for the heads-up on this, Andy.

    Do you believe this group would support republican candidates?

    Courious about your opinion on that. The company is based in uber-liberal land there in California.

    Yes, they would surely shy away from supporting a democrat who was against freedom online. But, I just don’t see them supporting a republican.

    Just my opinion. I’ve been wrong before.
