Developing: Cruz Mailers Trick Voters Into Thinking They’re Getting A Check

Developing: Cruz Mailers Trick Voters Into Thinking They’re Getting A Check

 

 

As echoes of the Iowa controversy involving Ben Carson allegedly leaving the race continue to haunt GOP Presidential hopeful Ted Cruz, new mailers are now raising questions.

Cruz, who also found himself the subject of attacks after “voter violation” mailers in Iowa, is sending out mail pieces that indicate a “check is enclosed” to those receiving them.

What they are, in fact, is a fundraising pitch for the Cruz campaign.

What do you think? View the piece and comment below:

  1. I get these kind of things all the time over the years. There is no attempt to fool anyone they are getting a check. It’s made out to Cruz, duh.

    With so much going on news wise ….why are we bothering with non-stories such as this?

  2. It’s borderline, but it’s not over the line. A good number of the people receiving them, probably are used to this “trick” and aren’t really fooled. I guess it plays into the “narrative” that Cruz’ campaign is “slick”, but other than that, there isn’t anything here. There isn’t any coercion to contribute, nor is there any false promise of benefits once a check is sent.

    • If you weren’t able to make ends meet, and you got an envelope that said a check was inside. I think it is a cruel joke. I have never received anything like this. Cruz is a joke.

  3. How cruel to the people on Social Security and others that are poor, to make them think they have a check in the mail. Cruel, then asking for money. This guy is about as low as they get. The other flyers were illegal and deceiving, but this is a cruel joke.

    • I think you insult Social Security recipients implying that they are so out of touch with reality that they would think someone out of the blue would send them a check. If you saw that envelope with Ted Cruz clearly on the envelope, would you seriously think he was sending you a check?

      I have gotten these type of letters from many places ,including charities and the first thing I do is check the return address to see who is asking for money.

        • Check your mail closer cause I have received these from almost every candidate, some even put a $1 dollar bill in them and ask you to send more back. just cause U and the author H8 Cruz is no need to smear an honest man

  4. We should have learned from their dirty tricks performed in Iowa that they wont stop there…I received the same mailer at my residence and when I asked who was willing to double my contribution, I received no response……Surprise…….

  5. I got the same thing today! Check for $10.00 From the wounded warriors group. I get about 5 a month from different veterans groups for $1.00 or $2.00 which are Valid. I cash these because I am a Vet Nam vet and finally getting some payback. It is a new con to get money. As far as dirty tricks, I think we are going to see a bunch in this election. It is the outsiders against City hall and should be interesting. It is sad that the media is in City Halls pocket so we can’t get a fair reading on what is going on! Don’t forget to vote if you live in NH. I grew up in Manchester and Bill Loeb would put your name in the Union Leader if you were registered but didn’t vote. But that was in th 50’s.

  6. To the Cruz supporters–he walks on water. They are no different from the Obama supporters of ’08. No amount of logic, information or reasoning will sway them. It is very disturbing. When I watch Cruz, I see a used car salesman–willing to say or do anything to make the sale. And he is very sneaky.
    When he was on the debate stage and the topic of HIS eligibility came up, he attempted to deflect by stating that Donald J. Trump was not eligible because his mother was from Scotland. I don’t think Trump knew the issue well enough to retort—BUT—Trump’s mother emigrated from Scotland, became a citizen and Trump was born a few years later therefore Trump is a natural born citizen. Cruz was born to an American and a Cuban in another country..VERY different scenario.

  7. IF YOU LOVE THIS COUNTRY, YOU WILL READ THIS ALL THE WAY THROUGH AND SEND IT TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

    PLEASE THINK WHAT COULD HAPPEN IN THIS COUNTRY TOMORROW.

    PLEASE PRAY IT DOES NOT HAPPEN, I AM. IT IS SCARY.

    QUESTIONS TO THINK ABOUT.

    1 HAVE WE BEEN SET UP FOR A MUSLIM INVASION BY OBAMA, HILLARY AND KERRY? HOW MANY MUSLIMS ARE IN HIS MANAGEMENT TEAM?

    READ THIS AND MAKE UP YOU MIND WHAT YOU THINK IS GOING ON.

    2 WHY ARE THERE A BIG FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, SOME MORE. COULD IT BE TO HOLD MUSLIMS LISTED AS REFUGES? IS IT TO HOUSE RADICAL MUSLIMS?

    I HAVE INFO THAT WE HAVE 35 MUSLIM CAMPS ESTABLISHED IN THE USA. I VERIFIED THAT THERE IS ONE JUST OUTSIDE DOVER TENNESSEE, CLOSE TO FORT CAMPBELL, KY.

    3 KENTUCKY H AS A REPUBLICAN GOVERNER THIS YEAR MAYBE HE WILL TELL US WHAT IS GOING ON ABOUT THE FEMA CAMP IN EAST KY., WITH ARMED GUARDS, I CANNOT FIND OUT.

    4 WHERE DID ALL THE AMMO GO THAT THEY BOUGHT UP?
    WHY TAKE OUR GUNS?

    5 I AM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, 85 YRS OLD, A CHRISTIAN AND A VETERAN OF THE KOREAN WAR, 52/53, AFTER GATHERING ALL FACTS, I VOTE FOR THE MOST QUALIFIED PERSON, NOT A PARTY. PARTY’S HAS PRACTICALLY RUINED US.

    DONALD TRUMP HAS AN IQ OF 156+ AND THAT PUTS HIM ABOVE 99.9 IN THE WORLD. NOW WHO IS QUALIFED TOBE THE BEST PRESIDENT?

    QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK YOURSELF, REGARDLESS IF YOU ARE REPUBLICAN, DEMOCRAT, OR INDEPENDENT. ARE THE THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS OBAMA IS TRYING TO BRING INTO THIS COUNTRY A START OF AN INVASION OF HIS MUSLIM COMRADS?

    7 ALL SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES HAD BETTER GET TOGETHER NOW AND BLOCK ALL MUSLIMS FROM ENTERING. CITZENS CONTACT YOUR GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES AND DEMAND THEY TAKE ACTION.

    8 WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN/IF WHOLESALE KILLING STARTS, HOLLER FOR OBAMA. YOU BETTER HAVE A GUN AND PLENTY OF AMMUNITION. IF ONE AMERICAN DIE FROM AN INVASION OF MUSLIMS, THE PEOPLE THAT LET THEM IN SHOULD BE ROUNDED UP AND PROSCUTED FOR ASSITING THE KILLERS.

    9 WE HAD BETTER ARM EVER SOLDIER & VET. WE HAVE AND FORCE THEM TO CARRY THEM WITH PLENTY OF AMMUNITION. IF MENTALLLY QUALIFIED. THIS SHOULD BE DONE IMMEDIATELY. WE DO NOT NEED A PERMIT, WE HAVE THE 2 ADMENDMENT. NO JUDGE, GOVERNER OR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS HAS THE RIGHT TO SAY WE CANNOT. A LAW HAS TO BE PASSED.

    10 TRUMP HAS A IQ IN EXCESS OF 156 AND IS THE MOST QUALIFIED PERSON TO RUN THIS COUNTRY HE IS NOT OBLIGATED, HE IS A 2 FISTED, IN YOUR FACE, TAKE NO CRAP FROM ANYONE, INCLUDING THE PRESS.

    11 ARE THERE 35 MUSLIM TRANING CAMPS HERE IN THE USA AND ONE 8 MILES OVER IN MEXICO? I VERIFIED ONE WAS OUTSITDE DOVER TENNESSEE, 1/13/16.

    12 WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT TRY AND BUY UP ALL
    AMMUNITION WITH OUR TAX MONEY AND ARE TRYING TO TAKE ALL GUNS, IS IT TO HELP AN INVADING ARMY?
    WHERE IS THIS AMMUNITION AT TODAY?

    13 IS OBAMA BRINGING IN UN TROOPS TO POLICE OUR MAJOR CITIY’S? IF SO, COULD THIS BE PART OF A PLAN TO INVADE THIS COUNTRY?

    14 WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF AN INVASION HAPPENS?
    WOULD THERE BE A NEW PRESIDENT? I DO NOT THINK SO.

    15 WOULD IT NOT BE BETTER IF EVERY PERSON HAD A
    GUN, WITH PLENTY OF AMMUNITION, IF WE WERE
    INVADED?

    16 WHY IS OBAMA, KERRY AND HILLIARY. BRINGING IN
    160 THOUSAND YOUNG MUSLIMS? COULD IT BE FOR
    AN IVASION?

    17 WHY WAS A SHIPPMENT OF OVER 120 PLANES & OVER
    100 TANKS TO EGYPT STOPPED AFTER THE ARMY KICKED
    THE RADICAL MUSLIMS OUT OF CONTROL LAST YEAR?
    WAS THE SHIPMENT TO HELP THE RADICALS?

    18 WAKE UP AMERICA, YOU HAVE NOT SEEN ANYTHING YET.

    19 WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT GIVE 5 TOP TERRIOST FOR ONE TRAITOR? WAS OBAMA PROTECTING HIS COMRADES?

    20 DID YOU BELIEVE OBAMA WHEN HE SAID ON NATION WIDE TV THAT HE WAS A MUSLIM? I BELIEVE THIS IS THE ONLY TRUTH HE HAS SAID.

    21 DO YOU BELIEVE OBAMA TO BE BLACK? HIS MOTHER WAS WHITE, HIS DAD A NORTH AFRICA ARAB.

    22 DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS GOVERNMENT HAS FORCED ISRAEL TO NUKE IRAN? IF SO. I BELIEVE A NORTHEN ARMY WILL COME DOWN AND ATTACK ISRAEL AND GOD, NOT ISRAEL WILL DESTROY 3/4TH OF THAT ARMY IN THE VALLEY THERE.

    23 WHY HAS BLACK AMERICA TURNED AGAINST THE
    PARTY THAT FREED THE SLAVES. LINCOLN WAS A REPUBLICAN, HE AND THOUSANDS OF WHITES DIED TO FREE THE SLAVES.

    24 DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THE DEMOCRATS STARTED THE KKK. I KNOW THEY DID.

    25 WHY ARE OUR TROOPS NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE GUNS AND AMMUNITION? COULD IT BE TO KEEP THEM FROM STOPPING AN INVASION?

    26 I COULD TAKE 100 ARMED MUSLIMS AND TAKE OVER ANY UNARMED MILITARY BASE, IF YOU WAS PREPAIRED TO KILL EVERY ONE ON THAT BASE AS MUSLIMS DO. IF SO, WHAT COULD YOU DO WITH 260 THOUSAND OR MORE.

    27 ANALYZE THESE QUESTIONS AND MAKE UP YOUR MIND ON WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO PROTECT OUR COUNTRY AND PREVENT A UNBELIVABLE BLOOD BATH IF ALL OF THE ANSWERS ABOVE IS YES.

    28 MILLIONS ARE TRAINED AND CAN TRAIN OTHER TO USE GUNS, VETS,TROOPS,COPS, HUNTERS WE DON’T NEED PERMITS WE THE SECOND ADMENDMENT AND NO LAW SURPRESS THAT.

    29 I SAY, CONTACT YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS EVERY DAY AND LET THEM KNOW HOW YOU FEEL. ARE YOU FOR AMERICA?

    30 I DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG I WILL BE ABLE TO SEND THIS OUT, OUR GOVERNMENT MAY DECIDE TO STOP ME.

    31 IF YOU ADD EVERYTHING UP IT REALLY LOOKS LIKE THE PRESENT ADMINSTRATION IS BACKING A MUSLIM TAKE OVER HERE.
    32 MAIL THIS TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS, DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICAN OR INDEPENDENTS IF YOUR ANSWERS IS YES. & PRAY IT DOES NOT HAPPEN. I DO.

  8. I WANT A SMART BUS MAN WITH IQ OF 146+ FOR PRES, WE DO NOT NEED 1ST YR. SEN/GOV/HILLIARY FOR PRES. DONALD TRUMP IS THE MAN QUALIFIED TO RUN THE LARGES BUSINESS ON EARTH THE US GOVERNMENT. NO ONE RUNNING IS QUALIFED BUT TRUMP.

  9. who cares! I get similar mail like that from all sorts of solicitors! It’s obviously not against the law!

  10. I receive these ALL the time from every sort of business charity and POLITICIAN!!!! Any one the cries about this does not have snail mail service or a LIAR!!!! This is a campaign for the most powerful person in the world (except 0) and it gets bloody!!! If this bothers you you better not even listen to TRUMP!!! His language, when he actually completes a sentence. is much dirtier than this!!!!!

  11. At a time when we need honesty, this looks like a deception. I’d probably throw it away, because junk mail coming like that.

  12. That’s pretty mild as fund raising attempts go, just a matching funds gimmick. I get all kinds of pitches in the mail for damn near everything. I’ve even gotten to the point of ignoring the telephone if it’s not convenient to answer and, if I do pick it up, hanging up if no one says anything right away after I say “hello.” If it’s actually someone who wants to talk to me, they’ll call right back. If I got mad about things like this, I’d have to be on medication.

  13. I received one and at no point did I think or believe there was a check for me inside. It was from Ted Cruz campaign so why would anyone in their right mind think a campaign would be sending them a check. I knew looking at the envelope that it was about contributing to his campaign, as I have and will again. The only candidate that stands on principle and isn’t a phony when it comes to the constitution. Cruz cares for this country and respects the constitution.

    How many other candidates even mention the constitution? Trump is all about him and his greatness. No humility in Trump and still haven’t heard anything intelligent come from him. Huge – great – tremendous – Lots – make this country great again? The people make this country great Donald not you. Never mentions the constitution or how he is going to get things done – nothing but rhetoric with no substance.
