Tea Party Admits Pushing Robo-Calls

Rep. Wendy Horman, R-Idaho Falls, and six other lawmakers are seeking an inquiry into possible violations of the Idaho Telephone Solicitation Act by opponents Gov. Butch Otter’s health insurance exchange bill. Horman said she received about 120 computer generated calls on her unlisted cell phone and office phone that that failed to include legally required disclosures, including the identity of the person for whom the call is made. The purpose of the message and contact information for the caller also are required. The calls were made Saturday and Tuesday, Horman said. Tea Party Boise President Chad Inman told me Tuesday the calls were made on behalf of Gem State Tea Party, an umbrella group uniting 13 Idaho Tea Party groups/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Would you like to see the Idaho AG take action on this request?
