I’ve been seeing posts on my dash all month about a petition to legally recognize non-binary genders.

Usually when I see a petition like that pop up on my dash a couple dozen times like that it’s something that easily reaches 100,000 signatures within the month.

But this petition only has…

Misanthropology:

The National Republican Congressional Committee appears to be registering donation websites using the names of Democratic candidates in the URL, distinguished from an official campaign site only by plain text reading “donate to help defeat” below the candidate’s name. Donations from all these sites currently redirect as donations to the NRCC.

There’s a formula, obviously, and it’s being applied to at least a half a dozen candidates already: pages using the same template, all redirecting to the RNCC, exist for the Democratic candidates Alex Sink, Martha Robertson, John Lewis, and Domenic Recchia at the time of this writing.

These are not presented as Republican sites, nor are the names suggestive of opposition sites. The URLs are all, without exception, either the candidate’s name or the candidate’s name accompanied by “forcongress,” “for2014,” or some similar campaign theme.

You have to scroll all the way to the bottom to get any text that suggests Republican involvement, usually in as low-contrast a font as possible.

I’ll try to stay on top of this story and any updates, but for now you need to know at least this much: the RNCC, going into the 2014 elections, is definitely registering misleading websites that appear to support Democratic candidates for Congress, but that direct donations to the RNCC.

This is absolute desperation - the same strategy used used to sell weight-loss cures and penis pills. I can’t imagine that the Republican Party is helping restore their brand for young people with these kinds of tactics.

THIS IS ABSOLUTE AWFUL  

This is important information to spread.

Holy fuck that’s a disgusting tactic.
