Is anyone else suddenly getting spammed with Romney fundraising emails??

Since the announcement of Ryan yesterday, I have received four emails asking me to donate to the Rolls-Royce campaign (one "from" Ann Romney, two "from" Mittens and today, Eddie Munster himself begged me for money.)

Prior to that, the only GOP emails I occasionally got were from my homestate turd Senate candidate, George Allen.

The RR emails are getting the same treatment as Macaca's-- my "SUBMIT AS SPAM" button has been busy.

Wonder what mailing list Mitten's hapless fundraising staff bought and why in the HELL they would ever think they'd get a dime from me?

3. Yes.

Yes (http://jilliancyork.com/2012/08/12/why-is-the-romney-campaign-spamming-me/).

AND, I followed the link in one of the emails to their privacy policy, and it appears that the Romney campaign is in violation of the email marketing company's rules: http://www.exacttarget.com/home/Anti-Spam-Policy.aspx.

9. Not sudden but from months ago

I started getting rightwing crap some months ago, but it's mostly tapered off. I don't know who did it, but obviously someone signed me up for the shite.
