Unbelievable – Ted Cruz Campaign Sends Out Personal “Shaming Letters” To Iowa Voters…

Posted on January 30, 2016 by sundance

update-1It has now been confirmed – The photograph of Ted Cruz campaign shaming letters is legit (see below). The letters are officially from the Ted Cruz campaign.

The personalized letters target individual Iowa voters and identifies them as having failed to vote in prior elections. They are admonished and then encouraged to vote this year. In addition the letters identify the neighbors of the voter, and provides their voting history.

The text reads:
“You are receiving this election notice because of low expected voter turnout in your area. Your individual voting history as well as your neighbors’ are public record. Their scores are published below, and many of them will see your score as well. CAUCUS ON MONDAY TO IMPROVE YOUR SCORE and please encourage your neighbors to caucus as well. A follow-up notice may be issued following Monday’s caucuses”.



Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler confirmed to IJ Review that the mailer was theirs in a phone call Friday evening, saying that the targeting had been “very narrow, but the caucuses are important and we want people who haven’t voted before to vote.” (link)

Iowa elections chief calls out Cruz on mailings to voters
Matthew Patane, The Des Moines Register 9:36 p.m. EST January 30, 2016
........................................................
Cruz, who has often joked that mailers "make good kindling," later told reporters that he would not apologize for his campaign's efforts to bring out caucusgoers.

"I will apologize to nobody for using every tool we can to encourage Iowa voters to come out and vote … Iowa, as first in the nation, has an incredibly important role in deciding who the next commander-in-chief of this country will be. We are going to continue to use every tool we can to encourage the men and woman of Iowa to come out, to caucus on Monday night and to stand together as one," Cruz said in Sioux City.

I'm looking forward to this caucus being over. Honestly this "shaming letter" issue is hard for me to understand.

It's my hope that Iowa stands tall for Trump so 'we' move forward with some momentum. The last two Iowa caucuses scare me though. Huckabee and Santorum don't exactly say they have their finger on America's political pulse.
