Alan Grayson Celebrates Ellul By Repenting Sell Out To Bells.
Rep. Alan Grayson is shocked, SHOCKED I tell you that two big companies tried to divide up the Internet between them while the FCC and Congress are sitting around with their thumbs up their butts. So -- in a complete reversal from where he was two weeks ago -- Grayson is now calling on the FCC to step up and act and create enforceable network neutrality rules. Huffpo piece here.
I'm sure this has nothing whatsoever to do with his major funders Moveon.org and ActBlue explaining how disappointed they were in his position and how their members, who are major contributors to Grayson and other progressive Dems, would really appreciate his reconsidering.
Always good to see the system works. Warms the cockles of my heart that civic virtue can still triumph with only a modest assist from enlightened self-interest.
