They have teeth. Kansans receiving blitz of phone calls in A.G. race:
Scores of automated phone calls have been coming to Kansas households during the past few days, blasting the candidates for attorney general. …
the tenor of the calls has yielded complaints.
“One woman was almost in tears,” said Carol Williams, director of the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission, whose agency received a wave of complaints on Thursday.
In one call, Kansans take an automated survey asking them their preference between Republican Attorney General Phill Kline and Democrat Paul Morrison.
Voters make their picks and the call ends. But if Morrison is the candidate of choice, voters a few minutes later are called again, this time by a real person who becomes animated in describing Morrison.
The article suggests that Kansans for Life sponsored the calls, calls that Phill Kline himself described as “vulgar and graphic.”
How glad I’ll be when Kline and his allies are out of power.
