[Democratic FCC commissioner balks at net neutrality rules]
A Democrat on the Federal Communications Commission wants to narrow the scope of new net neutrality rules that are set for a vote on Thursday, The Hill has learned.
Mignon Clyburn, one of three Democrats on the FCC, has asked Chairman Tom Wheeler to roll back some of the restrictions before the full commission votes on them, FCC officials said.
The request — which Wheeler has yet to respond to — puts the chairman in the awkward position of having to either roll back his proposals, or defend the tough rules and convince Clyburn to back down.
The initial plan sought by Wheeler would allow the FCC to investigate and take action against deals that are “not just and reasonable"

She can expect a call from a friend of the president, the president, or one of his kids. In any case, promises of a better position may have to be made, but she'll come around. Maybe an opportunistic public servant, and likely a non-story once Thursday rolls along.
