Washington attorney general wins kudos for online safety crusade

A new report on the role of state attorneys general in protecting consumers online calls out Washington AG Rob McKenna for efforts including a series of lawsuits since 2006 against spyware outfits and fraudulent Web sites.

The report was prepared by Washington, D.C. public interest groups, the Center for American Progress and Center for Democracy & Technology.

Also mentioned alongside McKenna was former New York AG Eliot Spitzer, despite Spitzer’s alleged preference for not using another type of consumer protection.
