Senator introduces new legislation to crack down on robocalls intended to impersonate individuals
Letter to SLED Chief Mark Keel Requests Investigation of Such Conduct by Groups

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Senator Sandy Senn, R-Charleston, today penned a letter to SLED Chief Mark Keel requesting the investigation of Robocall tactics by Dark Money group Campaign for Liberty. In the letter, Senn says the group made political calls to district residents using the “spoofing” tactics to appear the call was placed by the senator’s private business.

Senn says she has received numerous calls from constituents complaining of the misleading tactics by the group that causing them confusion of who was actually placing the call by the impersonation of the private business. Senn today introduced legislation to make it unlawful to use a caller identification system with the intent to mislead, defraud or deceive a recipient of a phone call -- an action which can negatively impact one’s livelihood.

“This is one of the lowest forms of policy-pushing I’ve ever seen and is inappropriate,” Senator Sandy Senn said. “Calls of these nature are at the very least misleading and confusing to the citizens who receive them daily. A number of my constituents have expressed their displeasure to the harassment of this political tactic, and have raised questions of the legality of such an act. It’s time we say that this modern form of impersonation is not okay, and take a serious look at addressing it.” 

Senator Sandy Senn represents District 41 that includes James Island, John’s Island, West Ashely and portions of Charleston and Summerville. Elected in 2016, she serves on the Agriculture and Natural Resources; Corrections and Penology; Education; Fish, Game and Forestry; and General committees.
