Iowans Getting Flooded With Calls From Ohio, Pushing Donald Trump
People in Iowa have been suffering a deluge of political telephone calls this year. Iowa families sit down to eat dinner together, and the phone rings. Is it an emergency call from Aunt Marge? No, it’s a phone call from a telemarketer who has been paid a low wage in compensation for making as many telephone calls on behalf of Donald Trump as possible. Sitting in a cubicle, these people go through their scripts, not caring how much they interrupt people’s lives. They’re just looking to make their numbers.
Many of these phone calls have been coming from Infocision, a telemarketing firm that has its corporate headquarters in Akron, Ohio, a full day’s drive away from Iowa. These phone calls aren’t made by grassroots activists. They’re made by employees of a big corporation, and they don’t have the choice about whether to make the calls. They either make the calls promoting Donald Trump or they lose their jobs.
This telephone harassment operation is being conducted by Patriots for Trump, an operation set up by Republican scam artist Scott Mackenzie, who was found by a court to have withheld money he raised, claiming to be on behalf of political candidates. According to the FEC, Patriots for Trump just dumped $100,000.00 into Infocision’s bank accounts to pay for the telemarketing onslaught against Iowa families.
Is this vision of rude phone calls by fake activists, paid for by corrupt super PACs, organized by cold corporations from far away, what you want to see more of in the United States? If so, then Donald Trump is your candidate.
