Federal Communications Commission commissioner Michael Copps today announced his intent to retire from the FCC effective January 1, 2012. "It has been a privilege and honor to serve for more than ten years as a Commissioner," wrote Copps in his public resignation letter. "The FCC is an agency of true excellence and its decisions are integral to our country's future. Ubiquitous, opportunity-creating broadband and a resource-rich media capable of informing our civic dialogue are critically-important components of our future success as a people, and I intend to keep speaking about these challenges as a private citizen in the years ahead." Copps indicated he will retire from the FCC sooner than January 1 should the Senate approve a replacement before that date.

Att probably lobbied for this and he was asked to resign by someone in their wallet. Evil or Very Mad
That's what I'm thinkin' too..
Seriously guys.
He's almost 71 and been on the commission for quite a few years.

Don't people ever get tired of blaming everything that happens on ATT buying politicians?

The guy couldn't just decide to retire?
