Is this the reason Senator Chuck Schumer is still undecided about Net Neutrality? :
From 1998 to 2004 the Federal Election Commission’s contribution records conclude that Senator Schumer has received over $525,000 from the Communications Industry.

There must be a footnote somewhere, Jay. Other democrats, including "what'shername," have received more dough from telcos, but still back net neutrality. Chuckles need to weigh in on this to disperse the gathering dark clouds from his reputation in the blogosphere, before it's too late.

I agree - it doesn't seem to make sense, unless he's showing his loyalty to the Telcos in hope of receiving future funding for his political career.
He wants to be the power broker for all Democrats.

When my father-in-law was ninety-something I heard my mother-in-law ask him, "What's the matter with you?"

"I'm worried about the future," he said.

"What future? You don't have any future," she reminded him.

"Yeah, I know," he agreed. "That's what worries me."
