Wake up, FCC' — Who's to be faulted for the startling moving at the Grammys?

 A Wisconsin representative and his constituents didn't care for Cardi B's exhibition at the new entertainment expo

A Wisconsin senator says that rapper Cardi B's presentation at the Grammy Grants was "conflicting with essential goodness," yet he's similarly annoyed with an administration organization.

GOP Rep. Glenn Grothman said in a short speech Thursday on the House floor that people have been calling his office to complain about the March 14 performance, which featured the performer, singer Megan Thee Stallion and other women doing sexually suggestive dances to a song that infuriated conservatives last year.

The song was toned down from its original lyrics — a writer for The New York Times said it had been downgraded from R-rated to PG — but many of the dance moves were not family-friendly, and you don’t have to take Grothman’s word for it. The Grammy website said the performers “showcased their most provocative dance moves” with a “larger-than-life stripper heel” in the center of the stage.

In his speech, Grothman said people who called his office “wonder why we are paying the FCC if they feel that this should be in living rooms across the nation.”

He added, “Wake up, FCC, and begin to do your job. The moral decline of America is partly due to your utter complacency.”

The FCC regulates international and interstate communications, including radio, television and cable, and has the power to impose fines for indecent, obscene or profane content. “Broadcasting obscene content is prohibited by law at all times of the day. Indecent and profane content are prohibited on broadcast TV and radio between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., when there is a reasonable risk that children may be in the audience,” the agency’s website says.

Two previous fines have involved CBS, the network that aired the Grammys: Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” at the Super Bowl in 2004, which drew a $550,000 fine (later rescinded when the exposure of Jackson’s breast was deemed an accident); and a 2004 episode of “Without a Trace” that depicted teens participating in an orgy
