ProPublica: A few weeks ago we wrote about a faux “Census” survey (image) being sent out by the Republican National Committee. We’ve gotten about 40 responses pointing us to other examples of questionable invocations of the census and other official-sounding surveys that are actually fundraising requests. One, called the “Official Ask America Datascan Survey,” (image) was sent out by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and makes the questions on the faux “Census” form look tame. One question from the survey:
“Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi want to confiscate legal fire arms from law abiding American citizens. Do oppose [sic] this liberal effort to restrict your Right to Bear Arms?”
Someone please explain to me how more money is going to discourage this kind of unethical activity.
Progressives need to get voters activated and informed. Right now.
