ABSTRACT
The article reports that Sam Feder, general counsel of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission failed to justify his decision to allow FCC Republican Robert McDowell to vote on AT&T Corp.'s merger with BellSouth Corp. because Michigan Representative John Dingell and Massachusetts Representative Edward Markey issued separate statements insisting McDowell should stay away from the giant telecommunications merger even though Feder gave him the permission to cast a vote.
