When is a lawsuit a fundraising strategy? Just look at the drama around the threats to sue the POTUS. Threats follow accusations, polarizing lines have been drawn, and the contributions are rolling in on both sides of the question. This is a sister strategy to "the never ending upset", an issue that has no hope of being resolved because it is in the financial interest of everyone to keep the fire burning and the campaign contributions coming. And the data mining that happens in the process is a fundamental piece of this strategy. Every time a petition is signed, opinions are given, posts are shared, phone calls are answered, texts are sent, and tweets retweeted, personal data flows from the electorate to the fundraisers of those who would be elected. Some say this need to create emotional giving is a big reason why Congress and Legislatures across America can't/won't get their job done. Have you seen this strategy in action? Let's talk about this! Find "homework" articles for this topic at the Lunch with Louden Facebook page: LUNCH with LOUDEN Jeanene Louden and co-host Debilyn Molineaux talk about current events and look for opportunities to bridge political divides, expose corruption and share information not covered in mainstream media.
