The National Republican Congressional Committee appears to be registering donation websites using the names of Democratic candidates in the URL, distinguished from an official campaign site only by plain text reading “donate to help defeat” below the candidate’s name. Donations from all these sites currently redirect as donations to the NRCC.
There’s a formula, obviously, and it’s being applied to at least a half a dozen candidates already: pages using the same template, all redirecting to the RNCC, exist for the Democratic candidates Alex Sink, Martha Robertson, John Lewis, and Domenic Recchia at the time of this writing.
These are not presented as Republican sites, nor are the names suggestive of opposition sites. The URLs are all, without exception, either the candidate’s name or the candidate’s name accompanied by “forcongress,” “for2014,” or some similar campaign theme.
You have to scroll all the way to the bottom to get any text that suggests Republican involvement, usually in as low-contrast a font as possible.
I’ll try to stay on top of this story and any updates, but for now you need to know at least this much: the RNCC, going into the 2014 elections, is definitely registering misleading websites that appear to support Democratic candidates for Congress, but that direct donations to the RNCC.
This is absolute desperation - the same strategy used used to sell weight-loss cures and penis pills. I can’t imagine that the Republican Party is helping restore their brand for young people with these kinds of tactics.
THIS IS ABSOLUTE AWFUL
“Back in April, the Senate approved VAWA reauthorization fairly easily, with a 68 to 31 vote. The bill was co-written by a liberal Democrat and a conservative Republican, and seemed on track to be reauthorized without much of a fuss, just as it was in 2000 and 2005…But House Republicans insisted the bill is too supportive of immigrants, the LGBT community, and Native Americans — and they’d rather let the law expire than approve a slightly expanded proposal…And so, for the first time since 1994, the Violence Against Women Act is no more.” - MSNBC
Dear white men: Move to an Indian reservation today, get an Indian girlfriend, and beat her all you want! This is what Congresswoman Noem and her Republican lackeys want you to know.
I was raised that you never hit a woman, period. As an Indian man, I was taught this was…
Because Eric Cantor is worried about what Native Americans would do to the White Man.
Oh our government…Truly the most functional and most effective in the world.
REBLOG this and never forget it.
THIS is what frustrates me the most about people who complain that Obama was ineffective. If you consider the childish, playground-bully tactics the GOP adopted, it’s astounding he got as much done as he did.
The land of the free~
i wish i could show this to my dad.
The Huffington Post has obtained the transcript of a 2000 phone call made by pro-life Congressman Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee, in which he pressured his former mistress to have an abortion.
In the call DesJarlais asks his lover to terminate a pregnancy.
“You told me you’d have an abortion, and now we’re getting too far along without one,” he tells the woman who he met when she was a patient of his.
They also discuss whether he will accompany her to the clinic for the aforementioned procedure.
“You told me you would have time to go with me and everything,” she says.
“I said, if I could, I would, didn’t I? And I will try,” he replies. “If I can [find] time, you’re saying you still will?”
Let me guess: he was a special exception because his abortion was the only moral abortion?
Oooh, let’s see how he’s voted on abortion issues in the past!
Yes on the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act
Yes on barring Obamacare from covering abortions
Yes on prohibiting federal funding for abortion
Yes on defunding Planned Parenthood
What a sack of shit. And yes, she was his patient. Unbelievable.
I love these.
Fuck you, Mitt.
