JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley says he is launching an investigation into activity by Google Inc.

Kansas City was one site chosen by Google to test its Google Fiber high speed service. At a media conference Monday, Hawley said Missourians have a right to know how Google uses information. The investigation will delve into potential mishandling of user information by Google, misappropriation of Google competitors’ content, and alleged search result manipulation favoring Google owned websites.

The announcement of the Google investigation follows Hawley’s previous decision to run for a U.S. Senate Seat currently occupied by Claire McCaskill. However, Hawley says the decision was made after being sworn in as Attorney General.
