Ebbin, who’s running for state Senate, has released a statement blasting Cuccinelli for his latest high-profile legal saber rattling: a plan to sue the Federal Communications Commission in a challenge to “net neutrality” policies.
Net neutrality is a principle that seeks to prohibit internet service providers (ISPs) from treating certain internet content different from other content. For instance, net neutrality would prevent an ISP from blocking popular but bandwidth-hogging video streaming web sites like Netflix and YouTube. The FCC adopted a set of net neutrality-inspired regulations in December.
Cuccinelli, who as Attorney General has filed lawsuits over health care reform and climate change, says he will try to gather support from other state attorneys general to sue the FCC, calling net neutrality “most egregious of all violations of federal law.”
Ebbin, in response, is released a statement calling net neutrality “common sense” and calling Cuccinelli “an embarrassment to our Commonwealth.”
“His extremist campaigns against clean air, against a woman’s right to choose, against union workers and against net neutrality are not what the people of Virginia want or need from their Attorney General,” Ebbin said. “Ken Cuccinelli doesn’t understand that today’s emerging businesses depend on an open and free Internet to allow them to innovate and grow. He’s willing to risk our economic future to advance his partisan agenda.”
