Under fire on Capitol Hill, Google has boosted its political muscle by creating its first political action committee. Because many of us are SEO's and GENERALLY not political (At least on ThreadWatch) I included inside what a PAC is.
PAC's are political groups that are not formally related to a particular political party, but are associated with other groups (like labor unions, corporations, etc.). PAC's try to influence elections and candidates by giving money to them so that they can later have laws passed that would favor their group.
