FCC Commisioner Kathleen Abernathy to Step Down
AP is reporting that republican Commission Kathleen Abernathy is leaving the Federal Communications Commission with her resignation effective December 9th. President Bush nominated Deborah Tate and renominated Michael Copps to terms on the Commission. Tate has yet to be confirmed on the Commission. This leaves the Commission in the position of having a republican chair and two democratic commissioners. Tate would fill the position held by Michael Powell, and the second empty position is the one held by Abernathy.
The AP story is here via the Washington Post.
