The Nigerians Aren't Alone In Fostering Internet Scams ...

... So is the Democratic Party. I got this email this morning. Apparently, I have some sort of account. See for yourself. I have an account number and everything. There is even a date the account was opened.

The only problem is I have never made a contribution and I do not recall ever opening an account. Could it be that the Democrats are resortint to fraud to raise money?

Mind you, I am more sympathetic to the Democrats than the Republicans. But Internet scam artists all deserve scorn. Shame on the Democratcs.

Here'a copy of the email:

We were reviewing our supporter records and saw that you had not yet made an online gift to the DSCC. The November elections feature a huge and ever-shifting map. And Karl Rove's American Crossroads group just announced on Friday that it is turning the full force of its fundraising machine against no fewer than eleven Democratic candidates.

The DSCC is counting on every one of our grassroots supporters to defeat Republicans and defend President Obama in November. We can't win without your help. Would you consider making a contribution today? Even $5 will make a difference in races from coast to coast.

Please click here to make a gift of $5 or more to the DSCC.

When you give to the DSCC, you'll become part of a powerful grassroots force that has helped elect 14 new Democrats to the Senate since 2006. There is no path to victory in November without the support of committed Democrats just like you. Please consider making an immediate donation.

Thank you.

J.B. Poersch

P.S.: Even a gift of $5 will make a difference in November. Please become a supporter of the DSCC today. We need your help to win in November!

I believe that the state is a necessary fiction and that failing to combat it is the first step toward tyranny.
