Dems Fundraise Using False Claim: ‘BREAKING: REPUBLICANS LAUNCH ANTI-OBAMA LAWSUIT’

By MRCTV, Special for  USDR

The DCCC is fundraising by asking donors to help fight a non-existent Republican lawsuit. A May 12 e-mail with the subject line “Obama faces BLIND HATRED” by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) opens with an untrue headline employing bold-face type in all caps:

“BREAKING: REPUBLICANS LAUNCH ANTI-OBAMA LAWSUIT”
In fact, Republicans did not launch an “anti-Obama lawsuit” – and the lawsuit they’re apparently citing certainly is not “breaking.” Republicans merely filed an opinion with the court regarding a lawsuit by 26 states filed back in December of last year.

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), one of the “113 Congressional Republicans” to sign the amicus brief, tells MRCTV the DCCC e-mail is either willfully misleading its donors or ignorant of the difference between an opinion and a lawsuit: “The DCCC is either deceiving its donors or doesn’t understand the judicial system with its fundraising headline about our amicus brief filed this week.”
