And yet another development on those calls by Women’s Voices Women Vote.

North Carolina’s attorney general has just put out a press release (pdf) saying that he’s investigating the calls and taking credit for having them stopped. “Regardless of the motivation, the robo-calls violated the law and they needed to stop,” Roy Cooper said. He also includes a correspondence with the group’s lawyer. In the letter, Cooper requests a variety of information about the calls.

Sarah Johnson, the group’s spokeswoman declined to comment on the correspondence, referring questions to the group’s lawyer. But she did say that the calls occurred last Thursday and Friday in North Carolina as they did in all the other 24 states (pdf) targeted by the group this April.
