Nancy Pelosi never thought she would get called out for this shady tactic.
But now the Speaker of the House is facing intense questions.
That’s because Nancy Pelosi just got called out for running this major fraud on the American people.
A common online fundraising tactic is for a group to find a large donor to put up a sum of money as a matching grant against online contributions.
In recent years, campaigns have adopted this tactic.
Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly emailed her supporters claiming she would personally match contributions up to a certain number so under a “5x match pledge,” a $10 contribution would really be $50 and so on.
But there is a catch.
Nancy Pelosi’s campaign never coughed up any of the money to match the donations from her supporters.
Pelosi sent at least 50 emails promising that Pelosi would “personally” match any contributions received, but there’s no evidence she ever coughed up any dough to match it.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s campaign committee has repeatedly promised her donors she would personally match their financial contributions, but as of the last reporting period she hadn’t provided a dime of her own money, records show. Why it matters: Deceptive political fundraising tactics are under scrutiny, and few are more popular than donation-matching pledges. Pelosi’s campaign has gone a step further than most — promising that she herself would put up those matching funds. It hasn’t reported any such contributions. What’s happening: Nancy Pelosi for Congress sent at least 50 fundraising emails from January through March, pledging she would “personally” match contributions up to a certain multiple.
Many online fundraisers consider this fraud and there is indication that the Justice Department may begin to investigate candidates and committees that do not follow through on matching contributions for criminal charges.
Now it remains to be seen if Pelosi will continue this scam or if the DOJ chooses to follow through and open an investigation into her practice of raising money under false pretenses that she will personally match the donation.
