Dave Nabity Spams

Republican Dave Nabity, “running for Republican Governor of Nebraska”, spams. (I like how he’s not just running for governor, he’s running for Republican governor.) The Nabity for Governor campaign sent me—and likely thousands of others—an unsolicited e-mail today. The poorly edited e-mail—it includes the word “Nebraskan’s” in place of “Nebraskans”, for example—was ostensibly written by Dave Nabity’s son, Justin. Justin apparently has a very friendly relationship with his dad because he likes to call his dad by his first name. The message includes some fun phrases:

  • “As Nebraska taxpayers, we pay 2-3 times more than other states to live.” Not only is that deceptive, it’s just plain not true. For one thing, there is no “life” tax in Nebraska, so we don’t pay anything “to live”. For another, Nebraskans do not pay 2-3 times more than every other states’ citizens in taxes.
  • “Now that Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito is confirmed we as a state are one step closer to the unique opportunity to overturn Roe v. Wade.” I had no idea the state of Nebraska had the power to overturn Roe v. Wade. I can’t believe the other 49 states would trust us with that responsibility.
  • “Never before, nor during this current primary race, has any candidate for Governor addressed so many issues and offered so many solutions!” Now that’s just hokey marketing.
  • “Thank you for taking the time to read this message and for your contined support…” I’m not sure what “contined” support is, but I’m happy to have offered it.

 

I unsubscribed from Dave Nabity’s spam list, but I’m really curious how his campaign got my address in the first place.

Strike that. I just resubscribed. Granted, the campaign’s tactics are tacky, but I want to keep tabs on Nebraska’s candidates. I already know I’m not voting for Dave Nabity so at least I know that his campaign’s dirty marketing won’t gain him my vote.
