People in Wilson have been getting automated phone calls since last weekend that encourage them to support HB 1252 and its new proposed regulations. I’ve heard from three people in about two days who received it. They said the recording doesn’t say who paid for the call, but it leaves no doubt what result the call is looking for.
Same thing’s happening in Salisbury. Not sure if the same group is behind the calls in both cities, but the effect is similar. The local newspaper figured out who is behind some of the calls there.
Think about how strange this is; a group that portays itself as a champion of limited government pushing for additional state regulations. Weird.
