Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said he would oppose President Joe Biden’s FCC nominee, Gigi Sohn, saying that Sohn cannot rise above her “toxic partisanship.”
“The FCC must remain above the toxic partisanship that Americans are sick and tired of, and Ms. Sohn has clearly shown she is not the person to do that,” Manchin said in a statement.
Manchin’s opposition to Sohn could likely sink her nomination to serve at the FCC. Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) is still in the hospital being treated for clinical depression, and if one more Democrat opposes her, it could effectively tank her nomination.

Gettin his centrist card punched again. He’s up to 8 now . When it gets to 10 he will run either as an independent or DONK.
Throwing us a bone(r).
Gigi Sohn is an extreme leftwing whacko, even for the Biden people. I get the feeling that this is theater for Manchin’s benefit.
Make a rule. Unattractive people can’t be appointed. A lot of leftists will lose their chance.
He’s trying; oh, Lord, how he’s trying.
But no dice.
She withdrew her nomination this afternoon.
Is it REALLY a SHE??? It looms like an UGLY HE!
She is not any different than all the others he has put through.
