Abernathy Leaving FCC

"Republican Commissioner Kathleen Abernathy, who has served on the commission since 2001, is not seeking another term and must leave the agency when Congress adjourns." That leaves Martin, Copps and Adelstein (2 Dems vs. the Republican sock puppet chairman).

"Martin is viewed inside the Beltway as a consensus builder who can garner the support of the two Democrats. Still, some Washington insiders say it could be difficult for him to tackle dicey issues, such as the reform of intercarrier compensation, without knowing for certain he has enough votes to carry out his agenda."

What a shame. He can't carry out his agenda now. Thank God! I say. Maybe we have a chance!
