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. 👿
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?
