2006 Election in a Phone Call

Josh has the details. If I didn’t know Josh better, I’d swear he was making it up.

You should read the whole post. But here’s the quick summary: robocalls are illegal in Indiana. So, the NRCC, in an attempt to paint the Democrat in an Indiana race as soft on immigration, hired a phone banking operation to make the calls. One problem: the phone bank wasn’t in Indiana, but in India. And apparently they had accents.

So the purported beneficiary (Republican Mark Souder) of the calls is now up in arms over the foreigners making calls into his district. Hilarious.
