The latest lobbying disclosure forms are out for lobbying efforts in the second quarter, and as Dave Maass points out, wouldn't you know, Verizon's lobbyist, Mike McKay disclosed that he was lobbying the House of Representatives on "NSA's data collection of of phone records."
Now, there's no indication over what the argument being made was -- but it's notable in that while various tech companies have been quite vocal about the whole NSA situation, AT&T and Verizon have been deafeningly silent. If they were working Congress hard to protect consumers' privacy rights... wouldn't that be something they'd be talking about publicly?
