Google pumps up its lobbying effort - The Washington Post

Perhaps Google should plan on hiring Newt Gingrich for lobbying work; he should have some spare time soon

Google’s U.S. lobbying bill more than tripled to $3.76 million in the fourth quarter as the Internet search leader fought proposed changes to online piracy laws and sought to influence a wide range of other issues that could affect its fortunes.

The amount is the company’s largest lobbying tab for any quarter since its Washington office opened in 2005. The company spent $1.24 million on lobbying during the final three months of 2010 and $2.38 million in the third quarter of 2011.
