Tate Taps Brownback Advisor

Publish date:

Republican Commissioner Deborah Taylor Tate has tapped Amy Blankenship to be an advisor on "children, family, and media issues."

Blankenship had been counsel to Senator Sam Brownback (R-Kan.). Tate's office described her as an advisor on the Broadcast Decency Act of 2005 that boosted FCC fines ten-fold. Brownback, along with Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), were driving forces behind upping the fines.

Blankenship's resume also includes counseling Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) on judicial nominations.
