Young Campaign Resorts to Breaking the Law – Again
Young sends robo-calls into Hoosier homes after doing the same during his primary
Indianapolis – Trailing in the polls and early voting, Todd Young’s campaign resorted to breaking the law on Monday, sending illegal computerized phone calls to Hoosier voters. The illegal activity was discovered after Young’s campaign placed an illegal robo call to a Hill volunteer. The Young campaign used the same dirty tricks to win the May Republican primary. A complaint is being filed with the office of the Indiana Attorney General.
“Todd Young has stooped to a new low,” said Dan Parker, Chair of the Indiana Democratic Party. “It was bad enough that he called for a 23% national sales tax, called Social Security a Ponzi scheme and insulted Hoosiers by calling their homes the middle of nowhere. Now he has decided that he is above the law. This is desperate, despicable politics of the worst kind. Hoosiers voters deserve better.”
This is the second time Young has placed illegal calls to voters. During the Republican primary, Young’s campaign placed illegal robo-calls to voters, with one call ending up on YouTube.
