      • The Congressional Backlash Over Aaron Swartz's Suicide Has Begun

        Adam Clark Estes 586 ViewsJan 15, 2013

        As lawmakers decry the Justice Department's treatment of Aaron Swartz, House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa says he's launching an investigation into the matter. Swartz, a 26-year-old computer savant who killed himself last Friday in the face of hacking charges, would've been a hero if he'd had a different profession, said the congressman. "I'm not condoning his hacking, but he’s certainly someone who worked very hard," Issa told The Huffington Post on Monday night. "Had he been a journalist and taken that same material that he gained from MIT, he would have been praised for it. It would have been like the Pentagon Papers." Instead, Swartz was looking at 35 years in jail and $1 million in fines. "It does seem like it was an awful lot," said Issa. "But again, we're in the business of finding for sure."
