Culture of Corruption: Jay Rockefeller

Found over at After Downing Street:

Truthout's Matt Renner reports: "a think tank with close ties to the telecommunication industry has been working with a key Democrat in the Senate on a domestic surveillance bill that would provide telecommunications companies with retroactive immunity for possibly violating federal law by spying on American citizens at the behest of the Bush administration. Third Way, a non-profit [so-called] 'progressive' think tank that is funded and controlled by hedge fund managers, corporate lawyers and business executives has advised Sen. Jay Rockefeller on a domestic surveillance bill that includes immunity for telecommunications companies with which Third Way board members have close ties."

Jay Rockefeller should be investigated for quid pro quo deals with telecom companies. Why is he working so feverishly to let major criminals off the hook?

Same shit, different party.
