Facebook Donated To 46 of 55 Members On Committee That Will Question Zuckerberg

Here is another story about the best politicians that money can buy:

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will be questioned about user privacy protections this week by members of the House and Senate committees but, as USA Today notes, many of these members were also “some of the biggest recipients of campaign contributions from Facebook employees directly and the political action committee funded by employees.”

The congressional panel that got the most Facebook contributions is the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which announced Wednesday morning it would question Zuckerberg on April 11. Members of the committee, whose jurisdiction gives it regulatory power over Internet companies, received nearly $381,000 in contributions tied to Facebook since 2007, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
