Pai visited the newspaper’s offices on Monday, the day the repeal went into effect, and said he has continued to receive threats following the December vote. His wife and in-laws have also received threatening phone calls and messages at home and at work, according to Journal opinion writer James Freeman.

Freeman wrote that Pai’s family “still requires 24-hour security” as a result.

The FCC in December voted 3-2 along party lines to roll back the regulations and shift authority for policing the broadband industry to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
