The Indiana Attorney General is investigating political phone calls that seem to originate from his office. The call is on behalf of a candidate running for state representative, according to the Attorney General.
Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s office has received complaints from constituents who received campaign phone calls from a number that, on caller ID, registers as the Attorney General’s main office. In a statement, Zoeller says an investigation is underway and that impersonating a government agency to make political calls could result in serious legal consequences.
Zoeller’s office would not identify the candidate on whose behalf the calls are being made, but it did say the calls might be affiliated with a political action group.
Zoeller is encouraging Hoosiers who receive these calls to report them to the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division.
