You’ve no doubt received phone calls from politicians. They might bother you during dinner or interrupt family time. It might also irritate you to know that you may be paying for them.
Gene Stilp is a Democrat running for a state representative of Dauphin County. He says he was shocked last week when his opponent, Republican Sue Helm, left a message on his home answering machine.
“It’s an illegal use, in my mind, of the taxpayers money,” Stilp said.
Helm’s voice was sent out to nearly 17,000 constituents to invite them to a town hall conference call. Helm says such messages, sometimes called robocalls, are important.
