Robocalls from US Chamber of Commerce

The US Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring robocalls on behalf of Saxby Chambliss.
I got one this morning (in Perry) and so did my sister-in-law (in Montezuma).
It would seem that the C of C could at least make a pretense of being nonpartisan, particularly since there are plenty of Chamber members in GA who are NOT Republicans.

Who funds the CofC annual budget?
Isn't that a conflict of interest?
Is that really the purpose of the Chamber?

I am sure that they are paying for this through their pac. It's legal and should make it perfectly clear to everyone that they are indeed, partisan.

I received a call from the CoC today AND from the Saxby campaign.Both were on abortion. That makes 4 abortion calls and 4 abortion mailers. I can't let my kids answer the phone anymore or even listen to the incoming message. I can't even let them go to the mailbox. On the first call I got, I was pounced on by 2 kids with Mama, what's abortion? Why are they calling you about it, Mama? Why is abortion bad, Mama?

Yeah, not a conversation I was ready to have. I'm very upset by these calls and have left messages and emails with Sen Saxby's office.

AND we voted for Jim Martin!
