New Orleans Magician Admits They Made AI RoboCall

Magician Admits They Made The AI RoboCall By Biden

(TheConservativeTimes.org) – A magician in New Orleans has fessed up to being the person who fabricated a robocall impersonating Joe Biden.

Paul David Carpenter is a hypnotist who holds multiple world records. Carpenter said that he was the one who created the robocall that was created mimicking Joe Biden’s voice. He claimed that he was paid by a consultant, now named Steve Kramer, for the President’s challenger- Dean Phillips. He provided call logs, texts, and payment documentation to back up his claims. The robocall was meant to deter voters from voting for Joe Biden in the New Hampshire primary election.

Said Carpenter, the magician, “I created the audio used in the robocall but I did not distribute it. I was in a situation where someone offered me some money to do something and I did it. There was no malicious intent. I didn’t know how it was going to be distributed.”

The recording is under investigation now by law enforcement and it prompted the United States government to outlaw robocalls using AI-generated voices. Carpenter even spoke out saying that it was “so scary” how easily he was able to produce the fake audio and he said that it took less than 20 minutes and only cost $1, while he was paid $150 for the recording.

Carpenter gave all the necessary documents to prove himself and he even shared the original audio file which was created by the software ElevenLabs, which is an AI firm that claims it can create AI voices with existing speech samples.

Dean Phillips’ Campaign said that it was “disgusted” that Mr. Kramer was behind the call. Phillips campaign press secretary, Katie Dolan, said “If it is true that Mr Kramer had any involvement in the creation of deepfake robocalls, he did so of his own volition, which had nothing to do with our campaign.”
