Obama supporters violated the act he proposed on 'electronic jamming'
Senator Obama piously proposed a law in 2006 to outlaw the sort of intimidation his own campaign has been practicing this year. In a blog entry titled Barack Obama's Dogs of War American Thinker described two concentrated campaigns launched by Obama supporters against guests on the two separate episodes of the Chicago talk radio institution, the Milt Rosenberg Show. The guests were writer Stanley Kurtz and David Freddoso (who wrote The Case Against Barack Obama http://www.amazon.com/Case-Against-Barack-Obama-Unexamined/dp/1596985666) respectively.
In recent elections, there have been allegations of political campaigns and committees using telephone jamming techniques to shut down the communication operations of groups supporting their political opponents. (Sec.2.4)The use of telephones or other communication devices to jam election-related communications should be prohibited in order to protect qualified voters' right to vote. (Sec.2.7)
Such techniques would include any with the "intent to"
- annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any person at the called number or who receives the communications (Sec.3.a.1.i)
- prevent or obstruct the broadcast or exchange of election-related information (Sec.3.a.1.ii)And just to be clear, "the term `election-related information' means information related to- endorsement, support, promotion of, or opposition to any clearly identified candidate..." (Sec.2.5.A)
