I chatted with Adam Ruff -- a former presidential campaign staffer, long-time political operative, and former congressional campaign manager -- about the way robocalls were deployed.
Please say it's this ...
"Voter ineligibility is a great one," he told me. "It really fucks with people. Nobody knows whether or not they can vote."
I should emphasize that Adam was using 'great' ironically -- like a 'great extinction' or the way Charlie Chaplin made a movie called The Great Dictator.
It works this way: "You call and say, 'This is the bureau of voter fraud regulation. Due to your failure to show up in the primaries, you are ineligible to vote in the general election. While we apologize for the inconvenience, lines are expected to be four to eight hours long, so we didn't want you to get here and then be turned away.'"
