Republican Party tries to hustle you with a fundraiser disguised as a census form

The Republican National Committee (RNC) is sending fundraising mailers in California and other states that look like the official U.S. census, a move critics worry will confuse people and skew actual census results.

The mailers are labeled “2020 Congressional District Census” and are sent in envelopes reading: “Do Not Destroy. Official Document.” The envelope contains a questionnaire on blue paper in a similar format to the actual census, and includes questions on political policies and stances…

The questionnaire does include fine print identifying it as a Republican piece of mail, stating near the top that it is “commissioned by the Republican Party” and in smaller print noting it’s paid for by the RNC…

The official 2020 census is expected to be mailed in March. Census survey documents are issued from the U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. Census Bureau and do not ask for money.

The Republican Party already has access to more money than the average small country. You have to wonder why this clown show is doing something so smarmy. Maybe it’s just to impress the boss. Win a weekend at Mar-a-lago with the best hustle of ordinary Republican voters?
