wow, beinhart, was da überm Teich abläuft, BL Ochman:
Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo and many others are reporting that Republicans are harrassing registered Democratic voters with anti-Democratic repeated robocalls including repeat messages intended to annoy voters into not supporting their candidate of choice and misdirecting people to the wrong polling places.
Robocalls are pre-recorded, automated phone calls containing anti-Democratic political messages.
The calls initially sound like they’re coming from the Democratic candidates since they mention the Democrat’s name right off the bat. One person may get dozens of calls at all hours, and if they become annoyed and hang up, they never find out that the calls actually come from Republican organizations like the National Republican Congressional Committee. (Who don’t deny that they’re making the calls)
The emerging scam? We checked out the stories of false flag GOP robocalls pretty closely before we were comfortable that we understood what was happening, could confirm it and start reporting on it yesterday. Now, over the course of the day, we’ve been getting other reports of Democrats getting calls informing them their voting location has been changed to what turns about to be a fake voting location.
Er meint, dass es noch nicht 100% sicher, dass die Republikaner so eine Aktion initiiert haben.
Doch bei den ABC News steht nunmehr, dass:
ABC News‘ Ellen Davis Reports: Bob Bauer, General Counsel for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sent a cease and desist letter to Don McGahn, General Counsel of the National Republican Campaign Committee requesting a stop to what he alleges is an illegal form of random calling of voter’s residences using recorded political messages, often known as ‚Robo-calling‘.
Auch seitens CNN hat man sich damit beschäftigt (btw, man bezieht sich auf das o.g. Blog Talking Point, das diese Robocalls intensiv nachverfolgt hat): Video (.mov)
also kein kleines Ding, sondern das No.1 (Spam)Thema in den USA zZt.
