@arstechnica Oh, AT&T got up to something shifty and illegal. Must have been a day that ends in "y".

@arstechnica Oh so they are finally calling "Lobbying" what it actually is and charging someone with Federal charges....

While they are at it, why don't they do a full investigation of everyone in Congress. /s

@arstechnica I hope they get fined a hundred dollars.
