CNN is reporting that Nikki Haley, Governor of SC, has been making robocalls today in SC.
The good news is that the Romney robocalls are have full disclosure on the calls. Good going Mitt !
The bad news is that robocalls are illegal in SC.
Here is the law. ( Link to the law here.)
SECTION 16-17-446. Regulation of automatically dialed announcing device (ADAD).
(A) "Adad" means an automatically dialed announcing device
which delivers a recorded message without assistance by a live operator
for the purpose of making an unsolicited consumer telephone call as
defined in Section 16-17-445(A)(3). Adad calls include automatically
announced calls of a political nature including, but not limited to,
calls relating to political campaigns. Here is the call. Link to audio here.
"Hi, this is Gov. Nikki Haley, and this morning I announced my
endorsement of Mitt Romney for President of the United States," Haley
says in the call, which was received by a Republican voter in Rock Hill
who provided it to CNN.
"Mitt Romney knows what it means to make decisions, real decisions, not
simply cast a vote," Haley says in the call. "He is not a creature of
Washington. He knows how the private economy works, how to fix it, and
most importantly how to solve problems. And he has proven it."
