As I posted last week on the DailyKos, the National Right To Life organization made illegal robocalls into Indiana.
The local IN NBC affiliate has now done a story on this.
This was the story from Ben Smith at the Politico.
The call attacks him for promising to sign federal legislation that would make it harder for states to impede abortion, and for voting against a (complicated) bill in the state legislature that would have more heavily regulated late-term abortions to the end of saving, the call says, "the lives of babies who survivedI late term abortions."
Former Indiana Rep. Tim Roemer, a pro-life Obama backer, said the group is playing politics.
"National Right to Life is running these calls because they know that Senator Clinton will be the easier Democrat to run against in the general election—and this is their way of giving her a helping hand in this tough primary battle," he said in the emailed statement.
Now, the local NBC affiliate has taken up the story. If you want to see the video and the story in total, click here.
The Attorney General of Indiana is looking for complaints in order to prosecute.
If you were called, please contact Steve Carter's office directly.
When it comes to robocalls, the Indiana Attorney General's office says it acts on complaints from citizens, and so far in this case, none has been filed. The state's robocall law has been challenged by those who argue it violates rights to free speech.
Carter insisted, "We intend to enforce the law, we'll pursue evidence of violations."
