said by openbox9:Are you serious? Its an enormous conflict of interest, not to mention suggests serious lapses of partiality and ethics.
How is that corruption?
I can't believe you even suggest this passes the smell test.
Re: Corruption You don't need feel sorry for me for anything. I explain my positions and I'll stand by them until someone is able to convince me otherwise. You haven't, yet.
Wouldn't the conflict of interest, if it existed, have occurred while he was at the FCC?

He may have had a conflict of interest as a commissioner if he was working on securing his current job through promises and favors.
Do you think he was given his current job because he is such a good guy?
said by openbox9:No you absolutely don't.
I understand the situation just fine.
I know people of every variety of political background and this is probably the universal ire of any American. The circular path between regulators and lobbyist. It is absolutely wrong on a grand scale.
It is unbelievable that anybody under any circumstance could defend it.
said by DataRiker:Apparently so, because if that's occurring, it's not his conflict of interest, it's his former officemates'.
Do I really have to explain this??

I'm done with this silly discussion.
Declaring that a former regulator lobbying his old office is not a conflict of interest does make for a silly discussion.
