In a recent post Yours Truly made the argument that given the stolen user information Ted Cruz’s campaign obtained from Cambridge Analytica, plus the fact that the campaign potentially received money funneled through the NRA by Russia, Ted Cruz was literally running an illegal campaign.
Well turns out we have yet another illegal conduct to add on to the Cruz campaign’s rap sheet and that is mail fraud.
It appears the desperate Cruz campaign has resorted to scaring Texas seniors into sending them donations. The campaign is apparently sending Texas seniors a letter that purports to be a court summons. Scared Texas seniors fearing this is a court document requiring them to make the payment then send the money to the Cruz campaign–an out and out scam.
Some have asked what’s inside. It’s a quite normal campaign fundraising letter, and this form. Still a “Summons” and asking for a “affirmation” signature, but no mention anymore of Travis County (hmm) and more clearly about campaign donation. pic.twitter.com/tbMdkjGPzi

Bottom line the Ted Cruz campaign is already engaged in borderline illegal conduct given the Cambridge Analytica and NRA scandals. It is about time the Beto camp and the mainstream media took the Cruz campaign to task about its borderline illegal tactics.
For those of you very happy with @Emolclause’s activism don’t shy away from the “tip jar” below on your way out
