A former Cambridge Analytica employee is receiving questions from lawmakers about his new data firm, Wired reports. Matt Oczkowski received a letter from Democrats from the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee about the new company, Data Propria, specifically whether any of the information the data firm currently possesses came from information gathered by Aleksandr Kogan from the Cambridge Analytica revelations. The lawmakers also seek answers on whether Data Propria got any information on Facebook users through third-party apps or from the social media company itself, whether it has obtained data from data brokers, if the information is used for political purposes, and whether the company is notifying users about how their information is being used.
