Blue Cross/Blue Shield of North Carolina is in some serious hot water — legally and politically — over an anti-public option mailer (the existence of which was first reported by TPMmuckraker) and a robocall the company was using to persuade its customers to oppose health care reform.

The state attorney general, state insurance commissioner and state lawmakers are all looking into the political activity by the insurance giant, which scrapped a second round of robocalls once it came under scrutiny.

TPMmuckraker is on the case.
