Formella said that he is working with state and federal law enforcement to continue investigating the calls that were made to New Hampshire voters on January 21. Another Texas company, Lingo Telecom, was the voice provider, but stopped giving the services to Life Corporation when the investigation opened.

It’s not immediately clear how Monk was involved. Fort Worth Star-Telegram identified Monk as the 69-year-old founder of a political polling service called PollMakers. A Fort Worth Inc. profile from 2022 said Monk quit studying for his South Dakota State wildlife degree and opened several ventures that he sold or went into bankruptcy before starting Pollmakers.
