Who’d have thunk that Vin Weber, one of the great stalwarts of the conservative movement, would sell his soul and get into bed with MoveOn.org and other left-wing groups to regulate the Internet?
We hear that he’s taking upwards of $300,000 each from the likes of Google, Yahoo, Amazon.com, eBay, Microsoft and others — all of which rarely give a dime, and then only grudingly, to Republicans — to shill for legislation on the Hill that would regulate the Internet. Not only is he pressing for Internet regulation, but Weber apparently is now supportive of knocking down child-security filters and allowing porn to be transmitted over cell phones and with virtually no parental controls on at-home computers.
The legislation Weber is backing would enable all of that, and yet the Chrisitian Coalition has now apparently joined him in his fight. Just how big a check did Reverend Falwell take from Weber, we wonder?
