GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAU) - Wisconsin state Senator Dave Hansen says he got eight or nine robocalls per day during the last election.
The Green Bay Democrat says he wants those calls permanently banned, calling them a nuisance and a waste of time. Hansen says he has heard similar complaints from many of his constituents. So-called robocalls are recorded political solicitations placed through a computer which dials a list of phone numbers. Putting your number on a Do Not Call list doesn’t protect you from the unwanted contacts.
It’s been suggested banning the calls could be the same as limiting free speech. Hansen says a court could deal with those types of challenges.
