'Curious' About Candidate Robo-CallsAP

With just one day left until the U.S. Senate special election, don’t expect those robo-calls from candidates to stop in the next 24 hours. Over the last couple weeks we have been getting more complaints from viewers about the political phone calls than, well, the number of phone calls you are getting.

Nancy was just one of the many people to Declare this Curiosity: “I’m on the Do Not Call list, but why isn’t it working for all the candidates?”

Bill cut right to the chase in Declaring his Curiosity: “You sit down to dinner and some pol calls and gives you indigestion.”

An email from wbztv.com visitor ‘Baintraith’ declared: “I am so annoyed by all these phone calls, the person who has called me the most is the one I will not vote for.”

You are not going to like this answer, but candidates are exempt from the Do Not Call rules. You will have to call the individual campaigns and tell them to take you off their list.
