Look Who's Beating Up on Google - News Blog - Daily Brief -

"What do Cliff Stearns, John Shimkus, and Fred Upton have in common?

They're all members of the House telecommunications subcommittee, and they've each publicly accused Google of having 'duped' the Federal Communications Commission by 'gaming' a recent multibillion-dollar auction of wireless frequencies, shortchanging federal coffers.

They also have this in common: Each has received more than $100,000 in campaign contributions over their careers from telephone and cable interests locked in a battle with Google over the use of those frequencies."
