Obama Campaign Uses Mother’s Day to Raise Cash

Sunday, May 13, 2012


The Obama campaign, which seemingly will try any fundraising scheme that occurs to it, is using Mother’s Day to get people to part with their money.

In an campaign email with the subject line “My best friend,” President Obama suggests to recipients that they “sign my card to her today.”

The message then provides a link you can access to wish Michelle a happy Mother’s Day. Click on it, and you’re presented with a page featuring a beautiful photo of the entire Obama family where you can fill out your name, zip code and email address. You can’t add a personal message – while Michelle treasures you, she doesn’t want to hear from you.

Click “Sign the Card,” and the thank you that you get is a new page hitting you up for a donation.
