18 Attorneys General Seek to Delay Net Neutrality Vote

Eighteen attorneys general have written a letter asking the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission to postpone Thursday’s vote on repealing net neutrality. The group has asked that Chairman Ajit Pai “take immediate action” on a huge number of fake comments submitted to the commission. “There may be over one million fake submissions from across the country. This is akin to identity theft on a massive scale—and theft of someone’s voice in a democracy is particularly concerning,” wrote the officials from Delaware, Hawaii, California, Kentucky, Massachusetts, and elsewhere. “It is essential that the commission gets a full and accurate picture of how changes to net neutrality will affect the everyday lives of Americans before they can act on such sweeping policy changes.”
