Nice to see the DNCC 'voting with their wallet,' so to speak.
You probably remember this revelation about the pre-9/11 wiretapping, and how it landed the CEO of Qwest in jail because he refused to break the law [..]
Today, the Democratic National Convention Committee announced their choice for a telecommunications provider for the convention in a press release:
The Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) and Denver-based Qwest Communications International Inc. (NYSE: Q) announced today that Qwest has been named as the official telecommunications provider for the 2008 Democratic National Convention, to be held Aug. 25-28 in Denver. In that role, Qwest will provide the network and people to help link the Convention to a nationwide and worldwide audience.[..]
The release didn't say anything about the wiretapping issue, just the Denver connections. Still, it seems a fine thing that they picked the one provably responsible corporate citizen to reward with the job.
