If anything happens I hope the result is to encourage more competition in everything under the purview of the FCC.
>Unfortunately, this request appears to be part of many Democrats' attempt to target one particular company because of its perceived political views...
Politics as usual, then. The stated reason for doing something is usually not the actual reason. I'm glad to see someone is standing up to this industry crony nonetheless, doing the right thing for the wrong reason is still doing the right thing.
I'm pretty cynical about all politician's motivations, but this statement doesn't hold up. If the FCC really is cheating to benefit one political party or company, then it would be impossible to accuse them of cheating without implicitly targeting that party or company. (Edit: In other words, their statement gives no information that helps distinguish whether the FCC is cheating or whether they are just being unfairly targeted by Democrats. It only points fingers.)
The statement is focusing the issue on politics in order to distract attention from the actual issue. Then at the end of the statement, it accuses their opponents of doing the same thing. Very scummy.
I'm not buying it. Pai is as slimy as they come, and everyone knows it. We are going to figure out who was responsible for stuffing the FCC public comment forum with dead people's comments no matter how much Pai screams about it. We are going to find where this blatantly corrupt man's kickbacks are coming from. That isn't politics. That's justice.
