Well folks, it is January 23rd. If the current schedule holds, the South Carolina primary (for Dems) is exactly 53 weeks from today. And we have the first allegation of illegal automated advocacy calls.

South Carolina’s Faith In the Sound News has the story. The allegation is that a Mitt Romney authorized robocall of a Jim DeMint endorsement was being placed to South Carolina residents. Apparently, South Carolina law requires robocalls to hang up when a person answers the phone. Didn’t happen this time, apparently. (easy mistake to make, especially if you are using an out-of-state vendor)

Is it true?
