Journal cybermage's Journal: Rockefeller Taking Telco Money As He Pushes Their Immunity

Think Telco execs don't think they did anything wrong complying with the government's warrantless wiretap requests, well take a look at to whom they're donating their money.

Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-West Virignia) has found himself on the receiving end of 10s of thousands in donations from telephone company executives this year. A level of donation that is is stark contrast to an previous year.

We all know what the telco exec's are hoping to get in return: Immunity from prosecution. So far, it seems likely that that is exactly what Rockefeller will deliver.

I realize this is all business as usual, but in this day and age of instant news and blogosphere firestorms, isn't there something we can do about such blatant corruption?
