On Monday, Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, R-Neb., took to Twitter in support of so-called “net neutrality” rules set to be overturned by the FCC this week.
I recently urged Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai to preserve the framework of net neutrality. The upcoming decision should not allow for corporate monopolistic domination, whether internet service provider delivery or content creators. #NetNeutraility— Jeff Fortenberry (@JeffFortenberry) December 11, 2017
While Fortenberry has clearly chosen lazy pandering over doing his homework regarding FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s proposed Restoring Internet Freedom Order, a quick look into Fortenberry’s record as a member of the City Council of Lincoln, Neb., reveals he bears direct responsibility for the threat of “monopolistic domination” in that city’s Internet Service Provider market.
