Even Wisconsin Republicans realize that their Governor is too fucking stupid to answer a phone and are trying to pass legislation to help him. But they really are the party for smaller government..
A week after Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker received a prank call from blogger Ian Murphy, who posed as conservative billionaire David Koch, two Wisconsin legislators introduced a bill Monday that would ban prank calls, reports the Badger Herald.
Republican state Sen. Mary Lazich and Republican state Rep. Mark Honadel said their measure would forbid deceiving the call’s recipient into believing the caller is someone he or she is not.
“While use of spoofing is said to have some legitimate uses, it can also be used to frighten, harass and potentially defraud,” Lazich and Honadel told the Badger Herald.
The bill wouldn’t affect everyone, however. Law enforcement officials who make fake phone calls to fight crime would be exempt from the law.
