MoveOn.org lied to New Jersey donors

MoveOn.org, the extreme leftist advocacy group and PAC, lied to its members in New Jersey’s 4th Congressional District in a fundraising email last month.

In the email that purported to be a survey to determine which Democrat the organization would endorse in the June 5th primary, Josh Welle, address none of your business, or Jim Keady of Spring Lake, MoveOn stated that Congressman Chris Smith is retiring and that either Welle or Keady will be running against an unnamed Republican nominee in the general election on November 6th.

Congressman Smith is running for reelection and is unopposed in the 4th District Republican primary on June 5th. 

MoveOn has not endorsed Welle, or Keady in the 4th, or any candidates in New Jersey for any office, according to their website.   They are apparently attempting to dupe gullible donors into parting with their money.

The email concluded with an appeal for a $5 per month pledge “to resist” President Donald “Trump’s agenda, contain the damage, defeat the hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation’s pendulum back toward sanity, decency and the kind of future we must never give up on.”

MMM emailed MoveOn requesting an explanation of their deceit. We received an auto generated response which said they are very busy and will respond if they get around to it.

  1. Wow. Desperation isn’t pretty. said at 11:42 am on May 21st, 2018:

    Just another example of how the left tries to manipulate uninformed voters, given the fact that they have so little a message to run on. I hope the Smith campaign makes a lot of noise about this infraction, and a strong complaint to the Federal Election Commission. Talk about low-class blows.. typical, but annoying and sad, as well.
