We've often heard stories of politicians passing legislation soon before they left office, only to have that very same legislation help them in their next job (coincidentally, we're sure). So it does seem interesting that Rep. Mike Rogers, the main champion behind CISPA, the privacy-destroy cybersecurity bill, is apparently a top candidate to head the FBI -- so much so that the FBI Agents Association, representing 12,000 FBI agents, has officially stated that it would like him to take the job. I'm sure it would be much easier to run the FBI if it could have companies violate the privacy of their users without any possible liability (even if they promised to protect that privacy), which is exactly what CISPA would allow. For what it's worth, there are a number of other candidates for the job, though it's somewhat horrifying to see one other top candidate be Neil MacBride. He's the former "anti-piracy" VP for the Business Software Alliance, who is now the US Attorney who has been driving the case against Kim Dotcom. Just imagine what kind of FBI there would be under his watch...
