FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Gigi Sohn’s Withdrawal of Her Nomination for FCC Chair 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to news that Gigi Sohn, President Biden’s nominee to serve as chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), has withdrawn her name from consideration, Cesar Ybarra, FreedomWorks Vice President of Policy, commented:

“Gigi Sohn should never have been nominated to the FCC in the first place. Her openly partisan outlook and past comments disqualify her from commanding a position that would allow her to regulate Americans’ freedom of speech. After her third confirmation hearing, we are glad to see that she finally had the wherewithal to withdraw her name from consideration herself.”


The mission of FreedomWorks is to build, educate, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty, and the rule of law.
