Google Spent More Than Anyone On Lobbyists This Year

What's the point in having billions and billions of dollars if you don't spend some of it protecting all that money. wink

But Federal Election Commission data show that the company spending the most money on lobbying is none of these traditional giants. Instead, it's Google. During the first quarter of 2015, Google spent $5.4 million lobbying the federal government, an increase of 43 percent from the same period last year, according to FEC data analyzed by the government transparency group MapLight.
