Google spent $18M lobbying DC in 2012

“The last time we looked at Silicon Valley’s lobbying efforts, Google was the big spender and Apple the piker. That hasn’t changed much in the past nine months. In fact, Google increased its political spending in 2012 – a Presidential election year – by nearly 90%, while Apple reduced its by 13%.” Anti-SOPA or no, that’s a hell of a lot of money. This should be illegal – it’s thinly veiled corruption.
