Senators, prosecutor cite fake comments on internet rules

Senators, prosecutor cite fake comments on internet rules”

-Craig Aaron, Free PressA coalition of over 40 consumer protection groups also called on the FCC to postpone its vote on repealing net neutrality in a letter to Pai on Monday, citing a pending court case that could ultimately "leave consumers at the mercy of internet service providers". He set up a website for people to check and report whether their name was improperly used for commenting.

"The FCC is on course to eliminate net neutrality guided by a record corrupted by hundreds of thousands of filings with stolen identities", Rosenworcel said. Speaking at a conference in February, he said that two years after the rules were put it in place, "it is evident that the FCC made a mistake (which) injected tremendous uncertainty into the broadband market, and uncertainty is the enemy of growth".

He said that his office's own review of the public filings showed that about 1 million comments may have used names that were in fact stolen identities. Before entering public service, Rosenworcel practiced communications law at Drinker Biddle & Reath.

Former Trump aide Flynn pleads guilty to lying about Russian Federation links
Mueller's prosecutors did not reveal the names of the officials, but indicated they were senior and within Trump's inner circle. Mueller's charging documents state bluntly that Flynn interfered with the FBI's inquiry into Trump-Russia collusion.

"Impersonation, forgery, other misuses of a person's identity are a violation to NY law". They also called on the FCC to seriously investigate the source of the comments, and to cooperate with state- or federal-level probes.

More than 20 million comments were submitted - but Schneiderman says many of them are fake. Over 23 million comments were submitted to the FCC, but allegations of fraud and fake comments have destroyed the integrity of that process, enabling the FCC to ignore public feedback.

After learning that Schneiderman meant to hold a press conference on Monday afternoon alongside FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, the FCC Office of Inspector General reportedly contacted the NY attorney general by email and offered its assistance with the investigation. "None", Schneiderman said in the letter to Pai. "This is just evidence that supporters of heavy-handed Internet regulations are becoming more desperate by the day as their effort to defeat Chairman Pai's plan to restore Internet freedom has stalled", Pai's office said in a statement.

He then returned to the patrol unit and the suspect fired multiple shots from a rifle at Trooper Allen , who died at the scene. Law enforcement officials have arrested 32-year-old Dabrett Montreal Black of Lindale after several hours after the shooting.

Now more than a couple dozen senators are asking FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to delay the vote in the wake of questions about the 21 million-plus comments about net neutrality submitted to the agency during the public comment period.

Under Pai's proposal, the Obama-era rules would be reversed and ISPs would only have to disclose blocking or throttling.

Citing the findings of Schneiderman's office and other researchers, the senators wrote, "These reports raise serious concerns as to whether the record the FCC is now relying on has been tampered with and merits the full attention of, and investigation by, the FCC before votes on this item are cast".
