PORTSMOUTH, N.H. -- As many readers of this blog have pointed out even if Barack Obama's campaign did send automated calls to people on the national Do Not Call registry it is not illegal under state law.
Yesterday the Clinton campaign said one of their supporters on the Do Not Call List received an automated call yesterday for Obama. National law allows political calls to be made to those on the list. New Hampshire law does not. In 2006, this became a big issue on a Congressional race here with the Republican National Congressional Committee placed several thousand calls.
BUT the state law is very clear that this rule does not apply to the state's presidential primary making these calls completely legal, however annoying.
