Congressman Todd Akin: Spammer

More Republican spam found in my inbox. Unlike last time, this one is actually from my congressmen.

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to announce my new web site and e-newsletter which will better serve you.

I’m pleased to announce that you’re a spammer and you will never get my vote.

This new e-newsletter with enhanced capabilities will let you know more quickly what is going on here in Washington, DC. This new technology will also increase the number of constituents I can reach on a regular basis and adds the ability to elicit direct responses on legislation and issues of the day.

By utilizing the new e-newsletter features we are able to communicate at a lower cost to taxpayers than ever before.

I hope that you will find this new e-newsletter easier to read, easier to respond to and most importantly more timely and informative. I am eager to hear from you as we take advantage of this new program.

I hope that you will find this new e-newsletter easier to read, easier to respond to – <sarcasm> I’m sure you won’t make available the email addresses of the respondents to other bulk emailers. </sarcasm>
