Talking Points Memo has the details, but here's the gist: If you get a recorded phone call purporting to be from a Democrat, or offering "more information about" the Democratic candidate, the odds are good that it's coming from the Republican National Committee. They've admitted to running these robocalls to swing voters all over the country, and the really fun part is that they call during dinner time or late at night, and if you hang up on them, they're programmed to call you back many, many times.

Basically, the NRCC is harassing swing voters in the name of their Democratic opponents, hoping to swing their votes. Charming. In some cases, the Republican candidate has asked them to stop, and the NRCC has refused.
