Trump’s end-of-campaign money bomb was “unfair, unethical and inappropriate”
Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign used pre-checked boxes and obscure design on fundraising emails to wring millions of dollars out of unwitting supporters, detonating a “money bomb”…The practice, pursued by the campaign and WinRed, a for-profit company, was detailed in an extensive report by the New York Times on Saturday. It is legal, but Ira Rheingold, executive director of the National Association of Consumer Advocates, told the paper it was “unfair, unethical and inappropriate”…
The “money bomb” did not bring victory, as Trump lost the electoral college by 306 votes to 232. He also lost the popular vote by more than 7 million ballots…
The Times reported that the practice was used for the Georgia Senate runoffs in January and continues to be used by the Republican party…It also detailed distressing experiences affecting Trump donors hit by surprise deductions and consequent trouble with banks and credit card companies.
I don’t know why the courts haven’t (yet) ruled this kind of activity as criminal fraud. Trump and his Republican bubbas had to refund over $64 million after the voting season ended. No one did any jail time.
El Trumpo continues to pardon crooks and his other peers
“If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem. It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.”
Abraham Lincoln, September 8, 1854.
In his first television interview since being pardoned by President Trump, longtime Republican consultant Roger Stone…praised the president as the greatest since Abraham Lincoln.
Yes, the Republican Party, nowadays, is controlled by crooks, frauds and pimps who ignore history, reality and truth…all of the time.
Later and later…instead of sooner

Facebook says they’ll stop abusing your privacy [a little bit]
” Facebook Inc will no longer feed user phone numbers provided to it for two-factor authentication into its “people you may know” feature, as part of a wide-ranging overhaul of its privacy practices, the company told Reuters.
” Revelations last year that Facebook was using personal data obtained for two-factor authentication to serve advertisements enraged privacy advocates, who called the practice deceptive and said it eroded trust in an essential digital security tool…
” Facebook initiated the updates in connection with its $5 billion settlement with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, which required it to boost safeguards on user data to resolve a government probe into its privacy practices.
The FTC order, which is still pending approval in court, said Facebook failed to disclose that the phone numbers provided for two-factor authentication also would be used for advertising, and specifically barred that approach to security tools.
If a thief has to change style, methods, to stay out of jail – while continuing to steal – of course, he will exert the effort.
