CONCORD, N.H. -- It turns out that some of the political phone messages Granite Staters are receiving as Election Day nears may be illegal. The issue revolves around the national Do Not Call registry.

A homeowner in Hillsboro received the same message several times in one day. It began by stating it had information about Paul Hodes, the Democratic challenger for the 2nd Congressional District.

....SNIP

"I think the race is really tight," said Hodes. "The Republicans are clearly on the run, and this recalls the phone jamming scandal of 2002 when Republicans jammed Democrats' phones to try and affect the election. People went to federal prison over it."

Violating the state law for the Do Not Call registry can be punishable by fines of up to $5,000.


..... SNIP"

2. Are they trying to keep your phone line busy..so Dems cannot get
through their call lists?

They are so warped. One can twist oneself into a pretzel trying to figure out the end game.
