Did you get one or several during the spring election campaign season?
If so, did they drive you nuts?
Robo-calls, those pre-recorded political telephone messages have people screaming bloody murder.
There was a bill in the last legislative session to add robo-calls to the Wisconsin Do Not Call List.
