City Paper is not for tourists
Moby knows his D.C. voting rights.
Shadow Rep. Mike Panetta found that out after he introduced himself to the musician and DJ at a party he talked himself into last night, after Moby had played a set.
Panetta mentioned that he supported his activism on behalf of “net neutrality”—-the idea that Internet bandwith shouldn’t be reserved for high bidders—-but Moby (who’s blogging about the DNC, incidentally) wanted to change the subject.
“Without missing a beat,” Panetta says, “he said, ‘I’d like to work on the D.C. issue—-it’s crazy that D.C. doesn’t have a voice in Congress.'”
And he’s willing to go farther than a mere congressional vote—-ahem, Eleanor. “He went right up to statehood,” Panetta says.
