JEFFERSON CITY — Attorney General Jay Nixon is warning fellow politicians to follow the law when making robo calls.

Nixon says his office received hundreds of complaints about automated phone calls in advance of the Aug. 5 primaries. Under federal law, such calls are supposed to identify who's behind them and provide a phone number people can call to get off the automated dialing list.
