Q: What do you it when a politician sends spam?
I don’t have a lot of preference between Jerry McNerney and Richard Pombo. But after 3 robo-calls from Pombo, he’s not getting my vote. Further, if I get any robo-calls from other candidates, I’ll vote against them too. Spammers are spammers whether it is email or phone calls. If you don’t have the decency to talk to me on the phone, don’t call. Since Richard Pombo supports this action, I can only conclude that he lacks common decency and does not deserve my vote.
I believe automated, unsolicited phone calls are against the law, but I do not have the patience to prove it. As with most types of spam, the slimy spammers usually figure out a loophole. Here is a good link if you are curious about automated phone dialing laws. In the meantime, consider re-signing up for the national do-not-call list. But I think I’m already on it, and it didn’t help me.
Lastly, vote NO ON Richard “Spamboy” Pombo!!!
