Look before you contribute: How the National Republican Congressional Committee steals your money

Crayon-style drawing of Republican elephant

The Republicans are stealing Democratic donations.

They have no shame, they have no morals, they have no soul.

The National Republican Congressional Committee has set up a number of websites that look like they could be a Democratic candidate’s campaign page, unless you read the fine print.


The NRCC has set up these pages for various congressional opponents, including Amanda Renteria (CA), Martha Roberston (NY), Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ), Alex Sink (FL), and John Tierney (MA). Each follow a similar format; they list the candidate’s name ‘for Congress’ to ask for donations

That’s right, they’ll merrily steal your money to fund the opposing candidate because HAHAHA isn’t this funny and aren’t we clever.

There isn’t a cesspool rank enough to sink them in.
