Tim, I recommend you read the FCC (not the FTC) law before blathering on about a whole lot of nothing. While you are correct that political calls to cell phones are prohibited without express permission, the penalty is not $16,000/violation. That penalty is for robocallers that do not have a license. Mistakes can happen, and do. You most likely gave your cell phone as your home phone. How are they supposed to know the difference? Report away, but don't expect much to happen. Why not better spend your time on a topic that's worth discussing?
Tim October 29, 2012 at 11:27 PM
How are they supposed to know the difference? Usually they run it through a database of cell phone numbers, provided by the major carriers, and compare it to their list. You know, like the law provided for them to do after it was enacted? Every other company that does this legally doesn't seem to have a problem doing this, so why is it acceptable to you when Garrett Peck does it? While you may overlay your own experience(or lack of) onto the outside world and find such 'confusion' acceptable, those who know how this is actually done find it unacceptable that an incredibly simple task was skipped in the rush to spam as many people as possible with phone calls. The FTC wrote the laws in 2009 that outlawed most robocalls like this, not the FCC. So there are no laws to read from the FCC. The FCC enforces them. But that is not germane to the conversation. And no, it is not a 'mistake'. Even if I put my mobile number down as my home number, they still need EXPLICIT permission to call. What would have been legal? Manually dialing everyone that gave them documented permission to call them. Anything else, is not.

It does, thanks.

It is a tragedy that an article like this degrades into political hackey sack. I am a proud Republican and am personally offended at some of these comments. The 'proud democrats' here seem to believe that if you think Early voting is a waste of time and money, or that voter fraud exists (it does) that you are part of some deviant conspiracy to disenfranchise Democratic voters. News flash...Republicans vote early too.

I've had my signal in the air for days calling "the bat". The self proclaimed crusader hasn't publically called out Peck for his recent reporting erros at the sate. I guess we shouldn't take the bat too seriously. As if anyone was
