Election judges targeted in series of mysterious robo-calls

An investigation has been launched after election judges became the targets of a series of mysterious robo-calls.

6000 election judges were contacted illegally over the weekend just days before the midterm election. The Chicago Board of Elections tells WGN robo-calls were deployed and someone or some group placed other calls telling the judges they were not properly trained to serve as election judges. Others were told if they didn't vote a straight party ticket, they also couldn't be an election judge on November 4th.

None of the information in the calls is true and the Chicago Board of Elections calls it illegal. 6000 emails have since been sent out telling the judges these calls were a fake.

The chairman of the Cook County Democratic party tells WGN Democrats are not behind it and whoever is should be prosecuted.

WGN reached out to the Republican party but has not yet received a response.

    LETTERMAN’S TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE DEMOCRAT

    #10. I vote Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I’ve decided to marry my German Shepherd.

    #9. I vote Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon at 15% isn’t.

    #8. I vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

    #7. I vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

    #6. I vote Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that gets police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

    #5. I vote Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

    #4. I vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away Social Security from those who paid into it.

    #3. I vote Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrat Party sees fit.

    #2. I vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

    … And, the #1 reason I vote Democrat is because I think it’s better to pay $billions$ for oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher, or fish here in America. We don’t care about the beetles, gophers, or fish in those other countries.

    I know you all will appreciate this definition. The best description of Obamacare so far:

    Remember when Nancy Pelosi said:

    “We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.”

    A physician called into a radio show and said:

    “That’s the definition of a stool sample.”
