FCC Chairman Ajit Pai Under Investigation by FCC’s Inspector General

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is under investigation by the FCC’s own inspector general.
Investigator general David L. Hunt is looking into whether Pai spearheaded a rules change last year in cahoots with Sinclair Broadcasting. The new rules allow media companies to increase the maximum amount of television stations they own. The investigation was opened late last year, according to The New York Times.
“For months I have been trying to get to the bottom of the allegations about Chairman Pai’s relationship with Sinclair Broadcasting,” Democratic Representative Frank Pallone told the Times. “I am grateful to the FCC’s inspector general that he has decided to take up this important investigation.”
