Ted Stevens Goes Postal

On today’s radioshow I reported on a half-baked pamphlet that Senate Commerce Committee Ted Stevens is distributing to fellow Senators to promote his telecom bill and oppose network neutrality. Click here to take a look at the pamphlet yourself [PDF].

Public Knowledge’s Alex Curis asks some good questions about the pamphlet:

  • Has a congressional committee itself (not a lobbyist or public interest org) ever advocated for a piece of legislation with a promotional brochure?
  • Is this a proper role of a committee?
  • What would members of the committee who didn’t vote for the legislation have to say about it?
