Robo Caller Doesn’t Want Your Calls?
By Paul Kiel – November 6, 2006, 2:59 PM
Irony of ironies.
Since we posted this morning Conquest Communications, the company that’s been conducting hundreds of thousands of often harrassing calls on behalf of the National Republican Congressional Committee, they’ve taken down their “Contact Us” and “About” pages.

The pages included the company’s phone number and bios of the company’s executives. Maybe they were getting too many phone calls?

The woman who answered the phone couldn’t tell me why the pages were down, only offering, “maybe we’re getting a lot of traffic.” When I asked if I could speak to someone who might know why, I was put through to the voicemail of one of the partners. That call, along with an earlier one to the company, has yet to be returned.
The company works exclusively with Republican clients, of which there is along, long list. One of the founding partners, David Johnson, is a veteran operative of the NRCC and the former Executive Director of the Republican Party of Virginia.

  • ‘Conquest’ Communications–appropriate name for these win-at-any-cost types.

    Linking to your blog (along with thousands of others) and I hope you don’t mind as it does involve a smidge of astrology!
