WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Federal Communications Commission said Thursday calls made with AI-generated voices are illegal after a fake robocall imitating President Joe Biden sought to dissuade people from voting for him in New Hampshire’s primary election.

The declaratory ruling gives state attorneys general new tools to go after the entities behind the robocalls, FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said.
