Surprising thing I noticed: Google's NetPAC has given Rep. Lamar Smith (the architect of SOPA) $17,000 over the past 6 years. Source: http://static.googleusercontent.com/external_content/untrusted_dlcp/www.google.com/en/us/publicpolicy/doc/NETPAC-Contributions-to-US-Federal-Candidates.pdf

If it's not abundantly clear, I am not a Google spokesperson. This information is a matter of public record. I think it's surprising, but my employer and I do not necessarily share opinions.

I might be bad doing math in my head, but that is 10 dollars a day. Right?
 
+Kee scholten 132 distinct candidates contributed to between 2006 and 2010, but those donations are on the large size even for NetPAC according to my analysis of the data; only about 20 of those candidates have had cumulative contributions over $12,000.
 
Yeah that is weird, my first thought was that he must chair some critical committee but he doesn't seem to
 
I suppose sometimes you back a politician and then he turns out to be a moron? Can't take the money back though!
 
Judiciary Committee Chairman: it pays to be on his good side.
 
Google should buy a new congressman. This one's buggy.
