*Ring* Is Your Refrigerator Running?

OK, so those aren't really the kind of anonymous calls that Samantha Levine writes up in today's Houston Chronicle, but an unknown group called "We The People" is making calls to voters in Republican congressional districts across the country.

The calls, which began shortly after DeLay's indictments, ask voters to call their representatives and demand that they return the indicted former Majority Leader's campaign cash. Neither Republican nor Democratic party officials can identify who is responsible for the calls. The source has been difficult to trace because they use a controversial new technology called "caller-id spoofing," Levine reports.

"According to the conservative National Review Online, residents of 37 districts in 14 states — none in Texas — have received the calls, though a far larger number of lawmakers have received donations from ARMPAC."
