Robocall Mimicking Biden’s Voice Told People Not to Vote in N.H. Primary
Joe Biden was not physically listed on the New Hampshire primary ballot due to a rift between the DNC and the New Hampshire Democrat Party.
The state wanted to maintain its first-in-the-nation voting, while the DNC wanted to move that to another state that was more diverse to properly reflect the makeup of the Democrat Party.
So, someone got the bright idea to manipulate Joe Biden’s voice with AI to encourage voters NOT to vote in the primary in New Hampshire.
The source of the robocalls is not yet known, but the person is likely to have a significant lawsuit on their hands when this is all settled.
A Democrat has already filed a complaint in the matter.
According to the report, the phone call stated, “What a bunch of malarkey. Voting this Tuesday only enables the Republicans in their quest to elect Donald Trump again. Your vote makes a difference in November, not this Tuesday.”
The call also gave the number to Kathy Sullivan, who is the person who led the SuperPAC that ran the write-in effort for Joe Biden in the state.
Sullivan stated, “It’s obviously somebody who wants to hurt Joe Biden.”
Sullivan’s effort worked, as the Democrat race was called immediately after the polls closed in favor of Joe Biden, and it was not even close.
Biden won 55.7% of the vote as a write-in candidate, while Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) won only 19.5% of the vote.
Marianne Williamson, the longshot candidate on the ticket, won 4.6% of the vote, with there still being about 11,000 write-in votes that are unprocessed, with most of them likely to go to Joe Biden.
I found this race particularly interesting in that for all those Democrats who demanded a choice other than Joe Biden when they got one in Phillips, they still voted for Biden, even though they had to write his name on the ticket.
I would suspect that both races will be over after Super Tuesday at this point.
And while primary voting will continue around the country to settle down-ballot elections, the anticipated Biden v. Trump 2.0 will be fully underway by April.
