In January, voters in New Hampshire received a call purporting to be from President Biden , who told them not to vote in the primary election. The investigation revealed that Life Corporation, a Texas company previously caught spreading misinformation, was behind this.
The calls in New Hampshire were noticed by the state's attorney general in mid-January. An investigation has begun into this attempt to influence voters. This was not just a robocall—it was impersonation of the president and a number of other offenses.
Fake Biden calls New Hampshire primaries a “bunch of scoundrels” and tells people to “save your vote for the election in November.” Investigators traced calls to a suspicious telecommunications provider at Lingo, which also went through many other telecoms. The FCC notes that the company (whatever its name) has been making illegal calls for years.
However, Lingo was only transmitting calls on behalf of the Life Corporation, a Texas company owned by someone named Walter Monk and also no stranger to illegal activities. The FCC notes that in 2003 it sued Life and Monk “for distributing apparently illegal pre-recorded and unsolicited advertising.”

Although the companies behind the calls have been identified, this is just the beginning of the legal work. Life and Lingo have been terminated by the State of New Hampshire and the FCC, respectively, and may face further charges. The Attorney General's Office has now issued a request to the company to provide necessary records in connection with the investigation.
