Chairman Pai Hails Guilty Plea Over Threats to His Family
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai thanked law enforcement for its work in securing a guilty plea from a man who threatened his family. Markara Man plead guilty Aug 31 in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, saying he was angry over the rollback of net neutrality rules. Man, 33, of Norwalk (CA), allegedly sent three emails to Chairman Pai Dec. 19 and 20, 2017, the first claiming a child had committed suicide because of the repeal, the second threatening to kill Pai's family members, and the third including an image of Chairman Pai with a framed photo of his family.
“I would like to thank the US Department of Justice, the FBI, local law enforcement, and FCC security officials for their hard work protecting my family and me," Chairman Pai said. "I am deeply grateful for all they have done to keep us safe.”
