Ajit Pai lied—and everyone knows it.
When the FCC repealed net neutrality, the former Verizon lawyer-turned-FCC chairman based the whole thing on a steaming pile of you-know-what.
He lied to the media about a DDoS attack that never happened, to try to downplay the overwhelming backlash to his plan.1 He sabotaged his agency’s public comment process, and refused to cooperate with investigations into mass fraud and identity theft.2
But now he could FINALLY have to answer for his crimes against the Internet. Net neutrality supporters will soon control the House committees that provide oversight for the FCC. But we have to tell them to make this a priority.
Tell Congress: investigate Ajit Pai’s lies and take action to restore net neutrality now!
House lawmakers have the power to thoroughly investigate Chairman Ajit Pai. They can haul him into hearings where he’ll have no choice but to face questions about his agency’s reckless attack on Internet freedom.
They can demand documentation and force Pai to come clean about the secret meetings he held with telecom lobbyists in the months before he gutted net neutrality.
The FCC is already facing a wave of lawsuits over its repeal of net neutrality. If Congress exposes Ajit Pai’s lies, it could unravel his entire scam.
But Pai’s former employers in the telecom industry will be doing everything in their power to delay, distract, and sweep this issue under the rug. We need to send a strong message to Congress right now to ensure they make this a priority.
Sign the petition to tell Congress: “Investigate Ajit Pai and restore net neutrality!”
We’re heading into a new year, and the fight for the free and open Internet is far from over. We need to kick 2019 off strong. This could be the year we restore net neutrality.
For the Internet,
