Article from WIRED, via Glenn Hauser's DXLD site:

http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2009/05/fcc-raid/

"You may not know it, but if you have a wireless router, a cordless phone, remote car-door opener, baby monitor or cellphone in your house, the FCC claims the right to enter your home without a warrant at any time of the day or night in order to inspect it."

Wonder if this has been used before as a cover for other federal investigations, and if not, why not?

If recent history is any indication, the government would prefer to just amend existing regulations to retroactively legalize doing whatever the fuck it feels like, so this is probably unnecessary. Especially given that the president is a man who has supported the tactic I describe.

Actually, if you read the article, the $125 was for speeding two years ago. It doesn't say what the punishment was for this incident. Not condoning anything, mind you, just making sure you give the real facts.
