Former Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai said his family was so severely harassed in 2017 after he repealed the Obama-era internet rules known as net neutrality that he had to take extraordinary security measures.
“People were threatening to murder my children,” said Pai during an interview with the Washington Examiner. “So, my son, who was in kindergarten at the time, couldn’t take the school bus to school for that entire year.”
Pai, who was confirmed to head the commission in 2017, stepped down from his position on Inauguration Day. He said the vicious attacks against his family were one of the worst events of his tenure.
