U.S. Senator is urging the Justice Department to take Yahoo! to the cleaners over its deal with Google.

Wisconsin Democrat Herb Kohl, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Anti-trust Subcommittee, said his panel concluded that "important competition issues are raised by this transaction." He called on the DoJ to "continue to monitor the state of competition in this industry."
