Sorry for politics but delete it if it is offensive.

Dear Friends,

Republican FCC Commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker is leaving the FCC to 
become a lobbyist for Comcast/NBC Universal -- just four months after 
she voted to approve the controversial merger of the two media behemoths.

We need to stop the revolving door of public servants leaving their 
government role and cashing in by joining companies they were supposed 
to be regulating.

I just signed a petition telling congress to launch an investigation of 
the FCC Commissioner's seemingly blatant conflict of interest. You can 
too, through the link below:
