The Tea Party Send Spam to Purchased Mailing Lists Claiming You Subscribed Washington D.C.!!. I have disposable addressses I use for sites I consider questionable. The Tea Party has bought 3 of these different addresses from scam companies. They email me the same emails daily 3 times. Unsubscribe doesnu2019t work. The emails, pretending to be political, are filled with advertisements for Internet scams and dubious services ranging from balding correction to smart phone sales. The typical format is to make some grossly inaccurate statement about democrats (the language is always alarmist, sometimes obscene, and multiple internet searches show patently false.) then every day they have a “surveyu201d asking the viewer if they agree with President Trump. If you actually take the “surveyu201d there is no way to complete it without making a donation to this “non-Profit.u201d I find it ironic that a “non-profitu201d Email is loaded with spam advertisements designed to generate money for the organization. Emails are also extremely repetitive. For example, for the past week Iu2019ve been receiving the same copy stating that “196 Democrats just made their move and are about officially file a federal lawsuit against President Trump to try and FORCIBLY remove him from the Oval Office. This isn’t impeachment. This is the single greatest coup in American History, and the greatest witch-hunt of our generation. I’m sending out this email as a RED ALERT to American Patriots. The stakes have never been higher. The Tea Party can’t afford to fall short right now. Grassroots Patriots like yourself are how President Trump became elected in the first place, and we can’t abandon now, not when he needs us more than ever. If we fail, it could jeapordize President Trump’s entire first term. That’s why I’m personally asking you: Are you on Team Trump?u201d This e-mail has been continuously emailed in June/July 2018. However, all I can find on the Internet is a lawsuit filed in April by the Democratic National Commitee against the Trump Campaign. The e-mail implies itu2019s Democratic Congress members (which is not true), implies the lawsuit is about to be filed (not true) and that it is against Trump (not true; heu2019s not named in the lawsuit.) This really should be a criminal offense. Whatu2019s the difference between sending this to paranoid citizens and yelling “Fire!u201d In a movie theater? Multiple emails have gone unanswered. There is no way to contact this company on their web page. Thereu2019s no way to contact “Steve Eichler CEO, Tea Party.u201d How many non-profits gave a CEO? But the most ridiculous part is this paragraph at the bottom of all the emails: “This email is never sent unsolicited. You have received this Tea Party email because you subscribed to it or someone forwarded it to you. To opt out, see the links below.u201d Well, I KNOW I didnu2019t sign up and no one forwarded me the email. I know because they are emailing my disposable addresses given only to sites that seemed likely to sell them. Itu2019s very sad that an organization would be trying to undermine democracy by spreading treasonous material, lying about their membership by claiming members that are simply purchased email addresses and almost forcing people to generate large amounts of untaxed for-Profit income. It makes me physically ill to think this scammer is purporting to be party of our political system. They are really doing the current administration a gross injustice by spreading lies and claiming to be legit.
