Remember this?

Any bets on whether the good folk at the Rally to Restore Sanity would donate money to get money out of politics?

Regulation for Thee, but not for Me!

Commissioner-Politicians on the FCC (they are after all nominated by the President and congressionally confirmed) ban all robocalls! Or do they?

FCC “Strengthens” Consumer Protections Against Telemarketing Robocalls.

None of our actions change requirements for prerecorded messages that are non-telemarketing, informational calls, such as calls by or on behalf of tax-exempt non-profit organizations, calls for political purposes, and calls for other noncommercial purposes, including those that deliver purely informational messages such as school closings.

Can’t one construe campsign robocalls as telemarketing campaigns? After all they are nothing more than Buy Mitt! or Buy Newt!.
