Marsha Blackburn sits on the committee that regulates the telecommunication industry. That would be Sprint, AT&T, Comcast, etc...You know, the folks we all love because they charge what they want and still give crappy service. Why is that? They bribe buy contribute to our elected officials. They still can't write a check to Blackburn personally but they can host a fundraiser for her campaign.

This is pretty brazen.

Sprint, of course, announced last week that it’s pursuing a merger with T-Mobile, and Blackburn is the chairwoman of the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on communications and technology, which oversees the wireless industry. Reps. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) and Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) wrote to House Energy and Commerce Chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.) and Blackburn last week to urge them to hold hearings on the proposed merger.
