Neo-Nazi Who Sent Racist Robocalls Is Fined $10 Million

  • On Saturday, the Idaho Statesman reported that Scott Rhodes, a notorious neo-Nazi activist, has been hit with a $9.9 million fine from the Federal Communications Commission for a series of racist and intimidating robocalls.
  • “In addition to attacking Black and Jewish politicians, Rhodes’ messages threatened a journalist in Sandpoint, targeted an Iowa community grieving the murder of a local college student, and attempted to influence the jury in a murder case against a white supremacist in Charlottesville, Virginia,” reported Chad Sokol.
  • “In announcing the fine on Jan. 14, the FCC said Rhodes repeatedly violated the Truth in Caller ID Act by manipulating the calls to make them appear as if they came from local phone numbers, a process known as ‘neighbor spoofing,'” continued the report.
