Mignon Clyburn

Mignon Clyburn is a Democratic member of the Federal Communications Commission, which has regulatory power over the nation's most important media, communications and technology companies. When FCC chairman Julius Genachowski steps down in June, rumor has it, Clyburn, daughter of the House's third-top Democrat Rep. James Clyburn, could be named acting commissioner.
