He's baaaaaack!

What's the number one threat to the E-Rate? Well, it has been mission creep, but after this month's election, E-Rate Enemy #1 is looming.

Rep. Joe "Bleed It Dry" Barton has made no bones about wanting to kill the E-Rate. When the Republicans were voted out of the majority in Congress, his efforts were thwarted. Now the Republicans are back in. Party rules about term limits would normally keep him out of the chairmanship, and the scuttlebutt was that he wouldn't get a waiver of those rules. But he's said all along that he will get the chairmanship, and now he's apparently dishing the dirt on his chief rival for the chairmanship.

This could get ugly.
