The Daily Caller first reported one week ago on emails and documents that indicate the Federal Communications Commission propped up LightSquared with favorable regulatory decisions as company executives met with administration officials at the White House and in other places. Obamas FCC also appears to have used its regulatory muscle to eliminate LightSquareds competitor, GlobalStar.
TheDC also uncovered a pattern of political contributions to Democrats that appear engineered to create a favorable political climate for LightSquared. Ahuja, who had never donated to Democrats before and has not since, gave the maximum allowable $30,400 contribution to the Democratic National Committee on the same day his lawyers were trying to arrange a meeting for him at the White House with top Obama technology adviser Aneesh Chopra and other officials.

In emails between Ahujas lawyers and White House officials Ahuja wanted to meet with, his lawyers pointed out that he would attend an Obama fundraiser on or about the same day he wanted the meeting.
LightSquared spokesman Terry Neal did not immediately respond to TheDCs request for comment on the possible connections between Ahujas resignation and revelations published exclusively by TheDC.
The Obama administration FCC approved Harbingers purchase of SkyTerra after what appeared to be a series of favorable regulatory decisions amid White House visits.
In the press release, Falcone said he remains confident in LightSquareds future despite these new revelations and the companys reported challenges related to GPS interference issues.
What did Lightsquared do to have the FCC finally rule against them - stop paying the Dem party for favors?
Edit: Falcone also put himself on Lightsquared's Board of Directors. I guess he wants to keep a closer eye on his minions.--
