Does anyone's inbox look like this????

Republicans keep spamming me. They also keep calling the house.

From 3:22 pm - 9:20 pm, I get emails from:
Newt Gingrich
Team Mitch
Steve Scalise
Dan Crenshaw
Republican Merchandise
Steve Scalise
Mitch McConnell
NRCC
Mitch McConnell
Trump Founding Membership
Donald Trump Jr

They have been spamming me for over a year.
I have no idea why.

4. I haven't gotten any such for many years

I'm wondering if someone who doesn't like you signed you up for these, or gave your email address to them?

It may be also that I rarely post anywhere other than DU and about 5 Facebook pages/groups (and not very much in any of the FB ones, and none of them are righties vs. lefties kinds of pages/groups).

Interesting that DU's spellcheck flags "righties" but not "lefties"

7. We responded to a few Trump surveys in 2017

Remember those???? On DU someone would say, "Hey lets all respond to Trump's survey and tell him what we think!"

I think that is where they got my email...I think it grew from there....Never respond to a survey......

8. Try Chlorox.

Seriously, I get on a list every now and then, and I mark it as spam so I never see it again. If you unsubscribe you've just let them know they hit a viable email address.

9. I haven't...save one.

State Senator Wilk (R)....but ironically, he's tried to be helpful, such as where to get unemployment benefits, contact his office if you have trouble doing so, COVID-19 resources, etc. That's a California Republican who gets hooking yourself up to the Trump Train will get yourself unemployed...particularly in a purple area.

As for the US Representative slot, I've only got info from Kristy Smith (D), nothing from Garcia (R) and I'm not registered with any party (I like getting info from both parties)...that kind of says something. The only thing I've seen is negative TV ads against Smith....I did see a pamphlet for Garcia somewhere...it was the usual "Build the Wall" and other Trump bullshit. Not that I needed to see it, I had already mailed in my ballot for Smith in the special election.

10. I finally opened some of those emails

They are all from the same address:

TheDaily@TheDailyGrind.news (Mitch, Newt, Trump, McSally, Scalise, Crenshaw etc. etc)

I knew they were fundraising emails.
Mitch McConnell says: BREAKING: My opponent's MASSIVE fundraising haul!!

None of these people represent me or live near me.

11. Sounds like a shotgun approach to fund raising.

Can't get enough in the home state or corporate shills, so start shooting at other areas...even at the expense of other Republican candidates. No honor among thieves.

And if your in a blue area, then in their view, it doesn't matter the GOP challenger loses out on funds, he was dead anyways. They are ruthless thugs.

A few F bombs usually work.
