House Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) took aim against FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, who joined Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D-NY) to bash fake comments and call for a delay to the Federal Communications Commission vote to repeal net neutrality rules. “There is no reason” for delay, said Chairman Greg Walden. “That is a false issue, and I am deeply disappointed in the role that Commissioner Rosenworcel has decided to play in this matter. It is disingenuous, it is disappointing, and it is completely unnecessary.” Rosenworcel’s office declined to comment on Walden’s remarks. Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) countered that she is grateful for Rosenworcel’s leadership. “Reports that bots may have filed hundreds of thousands of fraudulent comments during the FCC’s net neutrality policymaking process underscore a threat not only to the future of net neutrality, but also to the integrity of our democracy,” said Sen Hassan.
