Totally Unrelated to Governor Walker Incident, Wisconsin Lawmakers Now Trying to Ban Prank Calls


A week after Governor Scott Walker was duped into talking to a fake Koch brother for twenty minutes, some Republican state legislators have vowed, “Never again.” A bill introduced Monday would forbid “callers from purposely giving a false phone number and lying about his or her identity” or from “disguising their voices.” According to the Daily Caller, “The bill’s authors deny any correlation between the proposed law and last week’s false call made to Walker,” but clearly the governor can use all the help he can get. Nevertheless, by our reading of the bill’s outlines, it will still be legal to ask Walker if his refrigerator is running. [Daily Caller]
