Google hires former congresswoman to head up lobbying efforts

Google, the subject of congressional inquiries and a White House-penned privacy policy in recent months, has hired a big-name former lawmaker it hopes will help the company navigate Washington’s political landscape. The New York Times reports Google selected Susan Molinari, a former Republican congresswoman from New York, to head up its lobbying efforts. Molinari replaces Alan Davidson, who last year said he’d be parting ways with Google after growing its lobbying arm into a $11 million-a-year operation.
