"SNIP.....

ProPublica: “Two of the leading Republican firebrands in Congress touted big fundraising hauls as a show of grassroots support for their high-profile stands against accepting the 2020 election results.”

“But new financial disclosures show that Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) relied on an email marketing vendor that takes as much as 80 cents on the dollar. That means their headline-grabbing numbers were more the product of expensively soliciting hardcore Republicans than an organic groundswell of far-reaching support.”

3. Is everything GOPers do a scam?

Certainly seems so.

9. Yes.

Unless that was a rhetorical question.

In that case...it's still yes.

4. I'm fairly certain Boebert can be thrown on that heap, too.

Her fundraising numbers were suspiciously similar to those reported by Greene.

5. I wonder how those who donated feel about 80% of their donation

going to the vendor and not their favourite republican creep?

10. More about the scamming GOP vendor who is wetting a lot more than his beak.

LGM Consulting is helping Republicans raise millions ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

Several GOP members of Congress are using the services of a fundraiser who was fired by the Pennsylvania Republican Party after he sent an email to voters in the state in 2008 comparing a vote for Barack Obama to Jews' "tragic mistake" in ignoring warning signs prior to the Holocaust.

On Wednesday, ProPublica reported that several Republicans running for office in 2022 are using the services of LGM Consulting, whose principal is longtime Republican political operative Bryan G. Rudnick.[link:https://americanindependent.com/greene-boebert-hawley-fundraising-bryan-rudnick-jews-holocaust-barack-obama/|

13. Those fundraising scammers are probably emailing all of us too

We're smart enough to use spam filters and Caller ID. At least I hope we are.

NoMoRobo is a great piece of software that Verizon gives its customers to filter out spam calls. They have to technology to end all of the robo-dialing calls, but why should they?

Until Congress passes laws and puts the robo-dialers out of business, the phone companies will continue to make money selling spammers our data.

15. 80 cents on the dollar for email spamming? Someone's getting ripped off or pocketing the bucks.

.

This smells like a Trump scam.
