Nancy Pelosi: Urging a Spamtrap to Donate to the Democratic Party

U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, emailing via the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), is urging an email address that has not been live since before the previous presidential election to donate to the Democratic Party. The DCCC is sending a *lot* of spam to a number of spamtrap email addresses of mine, so much that I’m surprised they haven’t been listed by a major blacklist yet. The ESP is Blue State Digital.

Enough is enough.

The clock is ticking toward the Super Committee’s November 23rd deadline. Republicans are insisting on eliminating the Medicare guarantee while cutting taxes for millionaires and refusing to include a robust jobs plan. That’s not fair.


That’s why we’ve set a goal of raising $500,000 from grassroots Democrats before the critical Federal Election Commission deadline on November 30th to hold these Tea Party Republicans accountable. Will you stand with us?

Please contribute right now to ensure Democrats have a powerful showing in the first important deadline since the One Year Out to the election mark.

Thank you,

Nancy Pelosi
