National Republican Congressional Committee gets into the phishing business

See this campaign site?


There's one problem with it.


Carol Shea-Porter is actually a Democrat.  This site is purposely designed to look like a site promoting her candidacy.  The big "CONTRIBUTE" button?  It leads to a page that looks like a fundraiser page for her, but instead your money goes to the NRCC.


 


Oh, sure, it says "National Republican Congressional Committee" on the bottom.  In thin grey text.  Against a photo background.

    Well, it does also say "Fed up with Carol Shea-Porter? – Sign up Today".


    But still, pretty scummy.

  • Well, getting money from supporters who succeed at reading comprehension as well as non-supporters who fail at it is strictly more profitable than getting money from supporters who succeed alone.
