Senators ask Ajit Pai to explain: Why were as many as 2 million fake Net Neutrality comments filed under stolen names — including those of US Senators

Two US senators — who both had their identities stolen and then used to post fake public comments on net neutrality — are calling on FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to address how as many as 2 million fake comments were filed under stolen names.

“We were among those whose identities were misused to express viewpoints we do not hold,” Sens. Jeff Merkley, a Democrat from Oregon, and Pat Toomey, a Republican from Pennsylvania, said Monday in a letter addressed to Pai. “We are writing to express our concerns about these fake comments and the need to identify and address fraudulent behavior in the rulemaking process.”
