A political consultant who organized so-called robocalls with the voice of US President Joseph Biden to be sent to citizens in the US state of New Hampshire is facing a fine of six million dollars.

The voice - the work of artificial intelligence, was used to dissuade voters from voting for Biden - the US Federal Communications Commission announced.

The calls were made during the party primaries of candidates for the November presidential elections, and Stephen Cramer is accused of organizing that activity and twenty other crimes.

Cramer faces 13 felony charges for trying to dissuade someone from voting by using false information. He is also facing 13 misdemeanor charges because he falsely presented himself as a candidate through his own behavior or that of others.

Shortly after the New Hampshire primary, a Federal Commission banned robocalls containing AI-generated voices. The commission said the sentence it proposed for Cramer was the first related to the use of generative AI technology.
