Many Republicans are upset with the Federal Communications Commission for the “Net Neutrality” regulations it has proposed for the Internet. And California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, wants to know why FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski was frequently at the White House when the FCC was drafting those rules, Politico reports.

“In the 14 months since my initial request, the FCC has done little to demonstrate its independence from the White House,” Issa wrote in a letter dated Thursday.

“The large volume and timing of these meetings gives the appearance that they are more than coincidental,” Issa added.

Issa asked Genachowski for a listing of all meetings between FCC staff and consultants and the White House from Jan. 20, 2009, to the present.
