NY AG Calls for Probe, Delayed Net Neutrality Vote

New York City Leads Local Government, Consumer Groups Asking FCC To Delay Net Neutrality Vote

Specifically, the groups propose the FCC delay the vote until a pending court case before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - the en banc review in Federal Trade Commission v. AT&T Mobility - resolves.

The FCC received nearly 23 million comments since last spring, when Pai first made it clear that he would review the FCC's framework for its net neutrality rules. "So I call on my colleagues to halt this vote until we get to the bottom of what has happened with these stolen identities and the quality of our public record", said Rosenworcel, who was nominated by President Barack Obama to the FCC. As the commission's December 14th vote to keep or roll back Title II regulations gets closer, net neutrality supporters have come out in force. Among other things, Schneiderman cited a Broadband for America-funded study that found almost 8 million comments had been submitted using temporary or disposable email addresses, and almost 10 million comments involved duplicate email and home addresses.

Schneiderman and FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel urged the agency's chair, Ajit Pai, to fully cooperate with the state's investigation of more than one million comments that were made nationwide during the public discussion.

Devin Singletary ran for 164 yards and three touchdowns and Florida Atlantic beat North Texas in coach Lane Kiffin's first season. We respect it, move forward, keep swinging and the most important thing is to go win this next game for our seniors.

With no net neutrality your internet service prover could charge you separately for video, email, gaming, and social media which could be way more expensive than it is now. The FCC and the FCC Inspector General's office had been unwilling to provide records necessary to investigate who may be behind the misused identities - a departure from past practice, where the FCC has cooperated with the Attorney General's office on confidential investigations into practices that harmed New Yorkers and residents of other states.

Today, 37 senators called on the FCC chairman to delay the December 14 vote on net neutrality because of fake comments submitted online. "The FCC chairman and his staff have responded by stonewalling".

The FCC, composed of three Republicans and two Democrats, is widely expected to kill net neutrality in favor of what Pai and the Republicans call "light-touch regulation".

Mueller Removed FBI Agent From Russia Investigation Over Possible Anti-Trump Texts
A spokesperson for Mueller's team confirmed to BuzzFeed News that Strzok was no longer assigned part of the investigation. Comey announced he would recommend Clinton face no charges for her use of a private email server as Secretary of State.

Last week, Schneiderman's office unveiled an online tool that helped people see if their names had been used without their knowledge on comments submitted to the FCC.

To this end, we request a thorough investigation by the FCC into reports that bots may have interfered with this proceeding by filing hundreds of thousands of comments. "This is a big step but given the FCC's conduct over the past eight months we remain skeptical", Schneiderman said. In vast swaths of the country, internet service is only available from a single provider; is it micromanaging to simply ensure that a provider can't choose which web content users can and cannot access?

The city of NY and numerous groups supporting net neutrality have urged the FCC in a letter to delay the vote to allow for debate on the issue. That's unacceptable. The FCC needs to correct this course immediately.
