Burns votes against Net Neutrality; in other news, Burns receives $160K from telecomm lobbyists

Can’t say I’m surprised. Although with the other flip-flopping Burns has done recently to improve his image during the election cycle, I thought maybe – just maybe! – he’d do the right thing. You know, with all the scrutiny the election is bringing.

I guess you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

Today, the Wyden Internet Non-Discrimination Act died in committee on an 11-11 vote. Senator Conrad Burns voted against Net Neutrality.

You think his vote had anything to do with the $162,600 he took from telecomm lobbyists?

I still haven’t heard from Baucus about his stance on a free Internet.


  1. Now be fair to Conrad. I hear that the Internet is full of terrorists who operate in shadows, fly no flags…

    Something like that.

  2. Once again, we see our Junior Senator bought and paid for. Is there honestly anyone that is surprised by this?
