StopPoliticalCalls.org Robo call Hall of Fame (or Shame)

Welcome to our Robo Call Hall Of Fame (or Shame). 

NOTE:  As of 8/4/2008 Several of the the robo call links below have been removed by their original owners or password protected.   This is a shame, but then robo calls can be shameful.   These robo callers know who they are.  If you are interested in listening to them, please contact the owner of the site where the link goes directly.  

In this section we'll showcase robo calls for all levels of races, from Presidential races to down down down ballot races as well.

This election cycle has been particularly interesting with the PEW center reporting that 81% of Iowa voters received robo calls in November, 2007.  

The bottom line?   Robo calls are getting cheaper and cheaper and more and more American voters are receiving unwanted robo calls at home that invade their privacy.

Robo calls are this election cycle's spam.

We need your help!

If you have recorded robo calls, please feel free to upload them to the internet and then email StopPoliticalCalls.org with the following subject:  "Robo call audio link".

We will then include them in our hall of fame.

Push Polls

While push polls are not technically robo calls, they are a form of voter harassment and an invasion of privacy.

Push polls are sometimes automated and sometimes done by professional telemarketers.  Push polls are called "polls" because the calls seem like official political polls (done by news outlets) but are really nothing more than political campaign spinning and messaging.

The most nefarious push poll was done in the 2000 GOP primary by forces associated with G W Bush against John McCain.  Voters received a poll in which voters were told that McCain had fathered an illegitimate black child.

This from Wikipedia:

Voters in South Carolina reportedly were asked "Would you be more likely or less likely to vote for John McCain for president if you knew he had fathered an illegitimate black child?" The poll's allegation had no substance, but was heard by thousands of primary voters.[3] McCain and his wife had in fact adopted a Bangladeshi girl. Political consultant Lee Atwater was also well known for using push-polling among his aggressive campaign tactics.
