The FCC did step in - it issued a $17,000 notice of apparent liability 
against operator Charles Clemons back in 2008.

But the FCC has only limited enforcement teeth on its own. It's the US 
Attorney's office and Justice Department that pursue collection of that 
fine and further prosecution. It is widely believed that political 
factors have made that prosecution a very low priority.
