It's not just in NH

Apparently the Republican are doing this phone-calling scam all over the country, not just in NH.

From Talking Points:

Over at TPM, we've been keeping tabs on the robo calls being done by the National Republican Congressional Committee all over the country.

In each case, the calls begin with "Hi, I'm calling with information about [insert local Democratic candidate here]," and then continues to provide negative information about the candidate. Counter to FCC rules, which require that the caller identify themselves early on in the call, the calls only reveal that they are paid for by the NRCC at the end of the call.

Read it all.

UPDATE: Here's a TPM post with more details about the NH RoboCalls.
