FCC Chairman Ajit Pai might be the villain du jour, but it’s important to remember that he didn’t act alone. Below you’ll find a list of all his accomplices and how much they received from telecoms during their last election cycle. Think of it as a handy cheat sheet detailing who not to vote for in 2018 — if you’re still salty about net neutrality, anyway.

All credit goes to The Verge for compiling the list.

Up for grabs are all 435 seats in the House of Representatives as well as 33 (8 of which voted against net neutrality) in the Senate. And while this may seem to be a partisan gripe, it’s not. Our hope is certainly to remove those that voted to end net neutrality, but no one is saying you have to replace them with someone of the opposite party.

Update: After originally publishing the list (with credit, of course), we felt it was doing a great disservice to both The Verge and our readers not to just point you to theirs instead. Someone — or a team of someone’s — obviously put a lot of legwork into creating it.
