FEDERAL CUPCAKE COMMISSION

This came in yesterday from our friend Art Brodsky at Public Knowledge, a Washington DC public interest group that works on emerging issues that crop up as technology advances:

"On the first day of closed deliberations on the crucial Net Neutrality order, AT&T staff went through the Federal Communications Commission giving out dozens and dozens of cupcakes.  Not just any cupcakes.  Georgetown Cupcakes, which go for $29 per dozen. How much would these 1,530 cupcakes cost at retail price? $3,703."

PK managed to get their hands on an internal three-page AT&T document with details of who at the FCC got the treats:

An update was added later that read: "We’re told that AT&T provides goodies for FCC Commissioners and staff around this time every year."

What perfect timing!
