CISPA author and NSA supporter Mike Rogers leaving Congress to host radio show

Representative Mike Rogers (R-MI), chair of the House Intelligence Committee and author of the controversial CISPA cybersecurity bill, is stepping down in 2015 in order to host a nationally syndicated radio show. On a Michigan radio program, Rogers announced that he would not seek reelection in 2014, instead accepting a spot on the Cumulus network. In his statement, Rogers promised that he would continue to support American exceptionalism and a strong nation security policy agenda. Among other things, Rogers has spent the past few years unsuccessfully shepherding the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) through Congress. CISPA was created in order to allow companies and government agencies to share information about malicious software and security breaches, a goal that many in Washington were working towards. The bill passed the House of Representatives in 2012, but President Obama indicated he would veto it, and it died in the Senate.
