The Hill reported:
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai told The Wall Street Journal on Monday that he and his family are still being threatened in the months since the agency voted to roll back Obama-era net neutrality rules.
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 repeal of the 2015 net neutrality rules went into effect this week.
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).
