DCCC: Thanking a Spamtrap for its Support!

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), an organization within the U.S. Democratic political party who was reported for spamming here a few days ago, is now sending bulk email to thank an email address that was closed long before the 2008 presidential campaign for supporting Democratic causes and candidates in 2010 and 2012. Go figure. :/ As before, the ESP is Blue State Digital.

<spamtrap> —

We just finished a critical period in the 2012 campaign and I want to update you on the incredible accomplishments grassroots Democrats like you made possible.

*Drive to 25: We’re On A Roll*

We’re winning the fight for 2012 because of you!


We need to pick up 25 seats to take back the Speaker’s gavel from Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party Republicans. Victory Partners pledge a modest amount each month to support the campaigns of our courageous candidates.

Watch our new video, “By The Numbers: How to Take Back the House in 2012,” and become a Victory Partner for as little as $3 per month >>

DCCC Executive Director
