McDaniel faults law banning political robocalls



Attorney General Dustin McDaniel issued an opinion today that shouldn't gladden anyone's heart, even if it happens to be legally correct. His opinion said, in summary:

while it is difficult to say definitively, in my opinion the portion of ACA 5-63-204(a)(1) that prohibits robo-calls "in connection with a political campaign" is highly suspect when considered in relation to the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In contrast, the provisions of ACA 5-63-204(a)(1) prohibiting commercial robo-calls probably do not conflict with any federal laws, whether they be constitutional or statutory.
