"Don't Be Evil," famously is the slogan of the world's favorite search engine company, Google. Adhering to that admirable admonition will be a lot harder now that the Googlers have come to the K Street swamps. The New York Times reports that Google has now hired a bunch of DC's top lobbying firms. It's a sad commentary on the state of our republic that it was probably inevitable that a $100 billion company would eventually have to come to DC to spread around some protection money.
Disclosure: I have done reporting for TCSDaily which is owned by one of the lobbying firms, the DCI Group, just retained by Google. The editor, Nick Schulz, is a long time friend whom I trust implicitly.
