Forum topic

Should fake campaign calls be criminally prosecuted?

Many people complained they are getting inflammatory calls from one party or another with bizarre campaign pledges to lock up gays, build more pipelines and even ban immigrants for a five year moratorium in the name of XYZ party.  While some people are smart enough to recognize the calls as foul play, most are getting outraged and alienated by the party they think is calling. This impersonation IMO is technically election fraud.  SHould it be traced and prosecuted in your opinion?  I think we have to draw the line somewhere and this is a good and easy place to start.
