‘Meant to pass this along earlier, but it slipped my mind.
On or around May 5, some Vermonters like me received a robo-call ‘survey’ paid for by Phil Scott for Governor, or some similarly named group. Only I got the call four times in a row within less than an hour. I wrote a few word about the anomaly on Green Mountain Daily and gave it no more thought.
I welcomed the opportunity to triple whammy the GOP guesstimator, but others may have been less amused by the calls.
A few days ago, I received a phone call from an attorney in Chicago, who asked if I had given my consent anywhere to being contacted by the Vermont GOP, and I told him that I had not.
Somehow, he had gotten wind of my blogpost and was investigating the possibility that the Scott campaign had violated campaign regulations.
I couldn’t provide him with much information beyond what I had already written, but I promised to direct anyone else who received the call(s) to contact his firm. So I am passing the information along to our GMD readers/writers to use as they see fit.
It might just be a tempest in a teapot, based on my imperfect memory of how the survey was introduced or framed; or it might have something to do with the number of iterations…I have no idea.
BP checked and the law firm appears to engage in ambulance-chasing excursions, so we doubt the veracity of the attorney’s assertion as to who told him to contact me (unnamed in this post.) I have therefore also removed his contact information from the post.
