Google, Obama, ties, NLPC, HouseThe group wants the committee to investigate whether Google’s chummy ties with the White House helped it avoid penalties after a major privacy violation by the company.

Google, Obama, ties, NLPC, HouseIn a letter to the committee, the NLPC urges it to examine "a growing body of evidence" that the administration's "unusually close relationship with Google has resulted in favoritism toward the company on federal policy issues."

The letter says, "Like Halliburton in the previous administration, Google has an exceptionally close relationship with the current administration."
