      A consumer group is calling for a congressional investigation into allegations that internet giant Google turned close ties to the Obama administration into corporate benefits. The group charges in a 32-page report that Google has used its connections to gain “unique access” to the government's Moffett Field located near Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, Calif.

      obama, google, issa, moffettIn a letter to House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, (pictured) R-Calif., the group, Consumer Watchdog, said there is a “cozy relationship with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration that gives Google unique access to Moffett Field near Google’s headquarters, where a fleet of jets and helicopters stand ready to serve Google executives.

      “The benefits of the arrangement to date appear to be nothing more than allowing Google executives a launch pad for corporate junkets documented in the report. Others, including a non-profit humanitarian group, have sought, but been denied, use of the airfield.”

    • All those analysts that raised their price targets....suckered us again. They don't care if they look stupid I guess.
