Source of WBFF robocalls suggests right-wing political purpose
Source: Baltimore Sun
In May, I reported on Baltimore-area homes receiving mysterious robocalls voiced by WBFF anchorman Jeff Barnd asking residents a series of questions about Lyme disease, same-sex marriage and the alleged agenda of Gov. Martin O'Malley.
I have since been able to confirm that the name of the company is ccAdvertising, of Centreville, Va. And from its website, the firm appears to be heavily engaged in right-wing politics, including push polling in at least one state against same-sex ballot initiatives like the one Maryland is expected to have in the fall.
In the wake of the General Assembly passing and O'Malley signing legislation to make same-sex marriage legal, Maryland is expected to have a referendum on the ballot that could reverse it in November.
Could that be what the May robocalls were really about?
