My wife got this false and deceptive text message on her local SB number.

We notified County and State elections offices, and hope agents to track down the culprits. Has anyone else had this problem?

Deceptive Election Scam?

My mother was approached this weekend in her front yard by 3 self-professed "Republican Trump lovers" as they went door to door to warn people that the Dems were trying to "teach" gay/trans sex in schools and they are taking "good books" out of the library and making kids read a book showing graphic homosexual sex. She noted their literature was in Spanish, realizing they were out there trying to scare Spanish-speakers into voting against the Dems. This is a lie. Verifiable and despicable.

My daughters (high school and jr. high) have never heard of this book, nor have any of their teachers tried to teach them gay sex. They HAVE however, had discussions in their more liberal leaning classes about racism and how it played a role in the development of our country and have heard that some people view their genders differently than others and that we should be nice to them. But no, no trans/gay sex techniques, nor forced reading of child pornography as these women were out warning about.

Caroline Abate and her ilk are INTENTIONALLY LYING to voters.

Most liberals like Salud and Gavin are frauds so what do you expect.

I used to get a lot of these types of texts as well. Typing in STOP and returning the text has worked very well for me.

I never click on those political/vote text messages. I just type in STOP and send it through.

I would like to know what is false about this message? You did not share that as far as I can tell. Did your wife already vote by mail? If so she has received a confirmation from the county to that effect. I agree that this sort of stuff is trashy but people need to have some responsibility to ignore trash. Do we want election police out after the people who sent this? I don't like that idea.

11:10--the point of the question is that the poster did not tell us whether or not the vote had been verified by the county elections office. And if it was acknowledged what is the big deal about this message. Wife knows that the vote was done. The worst it seems is that the voter would be tempted to contact county elections and see if a new ballot was needed.

What's false is it's telling this person their ballot was not received when it already was, so playing into the election denying BS.

They will keep coming, even if you choose the "Stop" option. Anyone who thinks the cons have even a shred of conscience or decency has not been following their descent into malevolence over the last few decades.

Sure, Dems bombard people with spam around elections. But it never goes into the elder fraud and credit card fraud realm of GOP fundraising. Many PACs, including that of the former Potus, send emails claiming to be directly from Cheetoh himself saying things like "I'm disappointed you haven't donated yet" or "I saw you on a list of our top donors." Older donors, not knowing how mass emails work, are scammed by these fake messages. They also enroll people for monthly donations unless they do a convoluted opt-out.

7:54 - You come up with decent inadvertent parody amidst your ridiculous nonsense.

Anyone who thinks the Dems have a shred more conscience or decency than the ‘cons’ are unaware of their descent into a carefully constructed propaganda world detached from the reality of the last few decades.

Unfortunately for you, you’re on a list. Just hit delete and move on. Junk texts and emails are happening everywhere, not just in elections.

@1225/VOR: I wonder what it's like being your friend.
Friend - "Hey man, I have a bad form of cancer."
VOR - "Yeah well heart disease is pretty bad too"

Been getting bombarded with texts from both sides. I just delete them.

It does not make sense that the GOP would send this message out, but if they did, shame on them. Equally as disturbing is that the DNC has spent over $50,000,000 (yes, fifty million) promoting GOP candidates across the country.
- Amy Klobuchar: "Not a big fan of Democrats spending on GOP candidates."
- CNN: Jake Tapper questions Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) about his party supporting far-right Republican candidates in the primaries.
- Kari Lake? C'mon!!!

So, yeah....%*it happens, but spending money on "the other guy" takes the cake!!!

It's nice to know that Doctor VoR has expanded his practice from horse medicine and essential oils to psychiatry. Biden runs circles around Dump when it comes to speaking in complete sentences and not causing a diplomatic crisis or scandal every week (or day). It's sad we're at such a low standard but hey, that's what we get in our jenky pay-for-play joke of a political system.

That's how we got Biden, who's in worse mental shape than the concussed football player from Georgia, but a little better off than the Senate candidate from Penn. Sad state of affairs.

If this is true [I have no information], it will backfire if lock-step Republicans vote in another one like whatsername Greene from Georgia. Look at the poor concussion-damaged football player who's tied with or beating the incumbent there. To some, nothing but which-party matters. They'd vote for Scooby-doo before voting for Jesus if He identified Himself as the other party.

Red_Creek: If what you are saying is true, then I hope these outlets will retract their stories/reports:
- NYT (July 2022): Democrats spending millions promoting far-right GOP candidates....
- MSNBC (Oct. 2022): Democrats boosting far-right Republicans could backfire......
- The Guardian (Oct. 2022): Democratic strategists have spent millions of dollars to aid extremists, on the theory they’ll be easier to defeat in the general election.....
- Washington Post (Sept. 2022): Democrats have spent nearly $19 million across eight states in primaries this year amplifying far-right Republican candidates who have questioned or denied the validity of the 2020 election.....
- OpenSecrets (July 2022): Political groups and nonprofits aligned with the Democratic Party have spent nearly $44 million on advertising campaigns across five states’ Republican primaries to boost the profile of far-right candidates in California, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Maryland.

Babycakes. The Democrats spent $53,000 on one race to defeat Peter Meijer, an incumbent Republican in Michigan, in order to promote John Gibbs, a Trump promoted candidate. The other b.s. (19 million! 50 million!) you are reading on the internet or hearing on "new" channels is incorrect. Gibbs has a 31% chance of winning. Both parties have spent billions on their candidates, but Republicans keep pushing the Gibbs lie.

The bottom of the website says it's paid for by the California Republican Party. Not surprised.
