Now I Really Don’t Like Him

Robocalling state candidate hires sophists:

The Legislature recently voted to ban those sometimes-annoying “robocalls” to people on the national Do Not Call list. But that didn’t stop House Speaker Jeff Merkley, who backed the new law, from sending recorded calls to people on that very list.

The law “doesn’t take effect until January,” explained Merkley campaign manager Jon Isaacs. “We contract with people who follow the law, and I’m not concerned that any laws are being broken here.”

What gets me is the bland legalism:

“I’m not concerned that any laws are being broken here.”
