Q&A: Congressman Tom Lantos – Red Herring

From Red Herring:

Representative Tom Lantos, whose district includes part of Silicon Valley, has been an outspoken critic of Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, and Cisco regarding their businesses in China

Rep. (D-California), a Holocaust survivor and human rights advocate, told the companies in a House of Representatives subcommittee on Wednesday, “Your abhorrent activities in China are a disgrace. I do not understand how your corporate executives sleep at night” (see Net Showdown in Washington).

He spoke with RedHerring.com about his impressions from the hearing, his expectations for the Internet companies, and his support for a new bill that would make some of their actions illegal.
