FCC looks to fine conservative activists $5 million for false mail voting robocalls

The Federal Communications Commission proposed a $5.1 million fine against conservative activists Jacob Wohl and John Burkman and J.M. Burkman & Associations for making 1,141 unlawful robocalls that made false claims about mail voting, the agency said on Tuesday.

"Did you know that if you vote by mail, your personal information will be part of a public database that will be used by police departments to track down old warrants and be used by credit card companies to collect outstanding debts?" the call says, before also erroneously claiming the CDC might use such data to enforce mandatory vaccines. ======= rest of NBC story:
