A few weeks ago, Randall Terry was riding high after his “victory” over President Obama in the Oklahoma Democratic Primary and wanted everyone to know it, though his “victory” was short-lived, as it was determined that he would not actually be awarded any delegates because his campaign failed to fill out the proper paperwork.
Nevertheless, Terry proclaims that his showing in Oklahoma proves that anti-abortion Democrats and swing state voters have turned against President Obama and so he vows to continue his Potemkin presidential campaign and has now turned his attention toward Wyoming, where his campaign is making robocalls urging Republicans to register as Democrats and vote for him in next month’s caucuses:
Terry said he’s focusing solely on Wyoming, as its caucus system and small population of Democrats make it the easiest state to win.
On Thursday, Terry’s campaign launched a series of robocalls directed at Wyoming Republicans asking them to register as Democrats and vote for him in next month’s Democratic county caucuses.
“I only need about 500 votes to win the entire state, and you can be heard by the entire nation,” Terry said in the call.
There is only one problem: these sorts of robocalls are illegal in the state:
However, under Wyoming law, making automated phone calls for “promoting or any other use related to a political campaign” is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in prison and a $750 fine … Terry told the Casper Star-Tribune that he didn’t know that robocalls are banned in Wyoming and said he would order them to be immediately stopped. He said he wasn’t sure how many calls had been placed in Wyoming.
