Life Corporation, a Texas-based company, has been identified as the perpetrator behind AI-generated Biden calls, urging voters in New Hampshire not to participate in the primary.
Life Corporation utilized the services of Lingo, a questionable telecom provider with a history of illegal call operations under various names. Lingo, previously cited by the FCC for delivering illegal prerecorded and unsolicited advertisements in 2003, transmitted the calls on behalf of Life Corporation. The company’s owner, Walter Monk, is no stranger to legal issues.
The AI-generated Biden calls disparaged the New Hampshire primary, labeling it “a bunch of malarkey” and instructing people to “save your vote for the November election.” Despite cease and desist orders issued by New Hampshire authorities and the FCC, further legal actions may follow.

The Election Law Unit is actively investigating, issuing document preservation notices and subpoenas to Life Corporation and related entities.
Life Corporation’s website, featuring vague statements like “successfully creating solutions since 1987,” adds an air of uncertainty about the company’s actual activities. The investigation is ongoing, with potential charges pending against both Life Corporation and Lingo.
