Ajit Pai Needs a Wikipedia Page

New Federal Communications Commission member Ajit Pai, a Republican, raised his public profile on Wednesday with what was billed as his first big policy speech at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

But in an interview with National Journal following the speech, it was pointed out to Pai that he is not represented on one of the key promotional platforms available to rising Washington, D.C. power players -- Wikipedia.

A search for Pai on that site yields only an entry for an Indian cricket player. Oddly, this entry is linked to from the FCC's own Wikipedia page.

"Somehow, I need to take action to make sure that people know I'm not some cricketer from the 1940s," Pai said.
