*DO NOT* give your money to the fake MAGA PAC's out there. Give directly to the candidates or to the official campaign orgs. listed here.
Give your money directly to MAGA candidates or to the official campaign fundraising organizations.
In 2010 the grifters were caught flat footed, they missed the wave of Tea Party $$$ but they VOWED that wouldn't happen again, and by 2012 they were ready to catch the wave with their fake Tea Party PACS.
Most PACs only pass on around 10%, if that, to candidates running for office. The rest goes for salaries, travel, etc.
This was announced today. Notice the names of the fake PACs this guy made. He was playing BOTH SIDES.
You sell your donors on JUST HOW AWESOME your political acumen is, how EFFECTIVE your PAC is at gettin' the right people elected to office or lobbying present lawmakers to do awesome stuff.
Once you've got the sucker's $ you set up a fake LLC.
You then KICK BACK the $27,000 to yourself.
If somebody else helpfully set up a fake LLC & offers to let you use it as a front, they take a cut & then kick back the rest of the $.
They inflate everything. Like $20,000 in $1,000 installments to build a website, etc.
Trump is clearly sounding an alarm and this guy in TX going to prison for a few years should send a definite message to the grifters out there:
They are coming for you. You'd best STOP NOW.
He *had* to plead guilty, they had all the documentary evidence of what he did. If he'd fought it and it'd gone to trial....
Just something for the grifters out there to keep in mind.
Smart grifters would stop now. Dumb ones will tell themselves "Well I've gotten away with it so far, so...."
