Julius Genachowski, chairman of the Federal Communication Commission, has managed to alienate members of Congress on both sides of the aisle, Politico reports.

Conservatives perceive him as hellbent on introducing more regulation and destroying the free market.

And liberals see him as a wimp after he weakened the commission’s net neutrality proposal in the face of strong opposition from Republicans.

Republican Michigan Rep. Fred Upton, chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, reflects GOP displeasure with Genachowski.

“Rather than serving as an impartial expert and authority, the commission seems to be advancing a policy agenda of its own, often by twisting the arms of those who have come before it,” Upton said during the House debate over net neutrality.
