You Didn't Build That
http://benswann.com/lotfi-dear-tea-party-on-cantors-loss-you-didnt-build-that Donors need to know never to donate to sterile bee hive, vampire-parasite-grifter groups allegedly raising money for a campaign, when you can donate directly to the campaign instead, so your money actually gets there. Subject: RE: Announcing the Mississippi Victory Money Bomb! Date: Tue, 17 Jun 2014 13:42:57 -0700
I posted this critique of the “Money Bomb” scam last night on a Google list I belong to:
 "FW: Don't take victory for granted" Spoiler alert! Do not read farther if you are offended by criticism of Tea Party Patriots and the PAC Jenny Beth Martin runs and from which she draws a $15,000/month "strategic consulting fee" in addition to her over $272k annual Tea Party Patriots compensation. See their solicitation that follows, that gives the impression all moneys raised will go to McDaniel's campaign. Note the disclaimers at the end: " PAID FOR BY THE TEA PARTY PATRIOTS CITIZENS FUND NOT AUTHORIZED BY ANY CANDIDATE OR CANDIDATE'S COMMITTEE" So no candidate, including McDaniel, authorized this solicitation. Indeed, the law says this PAC cannot coordinate with any candidate. While the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund does not earmark contributions for individual candidates, your contribution will be used to support only those Tea Party candidates who have met our exacting standards for endorsement. So, despite giving you the impression this money raised will be going to help McDaniel, they tell you that they don't "earmark contributions for individual candidates." Hmmmm.
 
So now read the ad very, very carefully. See how carefully it has been written. No explicit promises. None. Are they asking you to give money to help McDaniel? Nope. They can't say that, they say in their disclaimers. So, they say: "Please make an emergency contribution of $25, $35, $50, $100, $200, or whatever you can afford immediately to our Mississippi Victory Money Bomb." Give the money to "our Mississippi Victory Money Bomb." "What's in a name. That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Are you beginning to catch on? Now they get really, really, specific: "We are running out of time. We have volunteers in Mississippi waiting to be able to go door-to-door. Do what you can today. Just click here." Volunteers in Mississippi. Where are they? How many are there? What are they doing on behalf of McDaniel? Oh, they're "waiting to be able to go door-to-door." Um, if I live in Mississippi and I want to go door-to-door on behalf of McDaniel, there's nothing to stop me from getting in contact with the McDaniel campaign. See: https://mcdaniel2014.com/ Note that the ad never says -- and can't! -- that ALL of the money raised will go to McDaniel's campaign. Indeed, they tell you explicitly that they will not and cannot make those representations! Amazing that people still fall for this stuff. Some are figuring it all out: http://benswann.com/lotfi-dear-tea-party-on-cantors-loss-you-didnt-build-that/ Off the backs of little people who make the largest donation they can afford, who think it's going to make a difference in the outcomes of elections? That it's going to be used for targeted GOTV that will increase the turnout of the good voters? And then it turns out it's all going for a whole lot of make work and lining the pockets of people who have no results to show other than lots of consulting fees and email list rentals and overhead to keep track of the money and first class air fare and swanky hotels and "national coordinating," and planning the next rally, etc.? I fell for this a long time ago. That's why I get their solicitations.

 Fwd: Announcing the Mississippi Victory Money Bomb! Here's another scam. Never donate to groups like this when you can donate directly to the campaign. Jenny Beth Martin claims they already spent $700k on his behalf and they don't have any money left. What a crock of poo. If she cut her salary to $100k/year, they'd have another $400k (at least). Not that it would really go to McDaniel's campaign of course, since the folks who run these groups line each others pockets with outrageous sweetheart "consulting" fees and claim it's for the campaign.
