History proves that one thing Democrats are good at is pulling the wool over the eyes of the American people.
For decades they’ve managed to get away with scamming constituents all while making people believe what they’re doing is for the good of the country.
Well it looks like Pelosi just pulled a fast one on the American people, and it resulted in one massive fundraising scam.
Campaigns, nonprofit organizations, even the local PTA have used the strategy of having one “large” donor put up a sum of money as a matching grant.
It’s in every fundraiser’s arsenal of tactics, and it is used quite frequently.
Because it works.
People like knowing that even if all they can give is $10, the impact will be doubled by some generous soul who just wants to do a good deed.
And, in most cases, the donor who pledged the match comes through.
Not unlike every other politician out there, Nancy Pelosi has used this strategy with her supporters for years.
Pelosi’s team sends out emails to supporters telling them she will personally match contributions up to a certain number.
Even the most wealthy of donors ask that there be a cap on the match as not to completely drain their pockets.
Given Pelosi’s known net worth, she should have no trouble matching what her email campaigns bring in.
But leave it to Pelosi to try and pull a fast one.
According to reports, Pelosi has never once followed through on her promise.
So, if donor A gave $10 thinking that the Speaker of the House would match it 5x as the email claimed, making it now a $50 contribution, they are likely sad to learn this never happened.
Pelosi has sent at least 50 emails stating she would “personally” match any contributions received, but there is no evidence this was ever done.
According to an Axios report:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s campaign committee has repeatedly promised her donors she would personally match their financial contributions, but as of the last reporting period she hadn’t provided a dime of her own money, records show.
Why it matters: Deceptive political fundraising tactics are under scrutiny, and few are more popular than donation-matching pledges. Pelosi’s campaign has gone a step further than most — promising that she herself would put up those matching funds. It hasn’t reported any such contributions.
What’s happening: Nancy Pelosi for Congress sent at least 50 fundraising emails from January through March, pledging she would “personally” match contributions up to a certain multiple.
In the industry of fundraising, this is called fraud.
Lying to donors is no way to gain their support.
There is some inkling that the Justice Department may start investigating candidates and committees that do not follow through on promises of matching contributions.
It’s possible that those who do not hold up their end of the deal could face criminal charges.
Of course, given the Democrats are in power and it’s really Biden’s DOJ right now, it’s possible Pelosi is never investigated.
Knowing her, she’ll just keep on robbing people blind.
But this is just one more indication of how far Democrats are willing to go to protect themselves and their money and ultimately deceive the American people.
