Officials Investigating AI-Powered Joe Biden Calling People in New Hampshire

Malarkey Bot Robocalls in New Hampshire during election season are nothing new — but one that used President Joe Biden’s voice to dissuade people from voting in the state’s presidential primaries has officials scratching their heads. In a statement, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office said it’s investigating a series of robocalls targeting Democrats that used a Biden-like voice telling people not to vote in its primaries. “Although the voice in the robocall sounds like the voice of President Biden, this message appears to be artificially generated based on initial indications,” the statement indicated. “These messages appear to be an unlawful attempt to disrupt the New Hampshire Presidential Primary Election and to suppress New Hampshire voters.” Sent out on January 21, the message with the fake Biden voice told residents of the state that their vote vote “makes a difference in November, not this Tuesday.” As NBC News points out, the primary ballots do not include the incumbent president’s name because it’s conducted before South Carolina’s, which is officially recognized as the first primary election in the country. As such, there’s a write-in campaign to get people to vote for Biden to be the Democratic candidate — and officials are concerned that these robocalls may be an attempt to disrupt that effort.
