Shadowy Third-Party Group Linked to Illegal Robocalls Sending Text Messages for the Benefit of Gerlach

Shadowy Third-Party Group Linked to Illegal Robocalls Sending Text Messages for the Benefit of Gerlach

Still Unable to Speak for Himself, Gerlach Now Relies on Potentially Illegal Text Messages from Americans in Contact PAC

ELVERSON, Pa. – Today, people in the 6th District received a surprising text message on their cell phones. Stating they were from “sms@aicpac.com,” the text message attempts to make a scary link from Manan Trivedi to Obamacare and job losses.

This organization, Americans in Contact PAC (AICPAC), has been linked in the past to push polling and potentially illegal robocalls. Now, they are sending unsolicited text messages to voters in the 6th District trying to scare voters away from Manan Trivedi.

“Congressman Gerlach has been letting others talk for him throughout this whole campaign,” Trivedi said. “He’s been hiding behind his campaign spokesperson and female voiceovers and mailers from the state Republican party and refusing to debate me in Berks County. Now, it appears he has enlisted the help of a shadowy third-party group. But with a record of not listening to the people in his district — voting to bail out big banks, protecting tax breaks for outsourcing corporations, and voting against small businesses — it’s obvious why Congressman Gerlach needs to resort to the old Washington trick of hiding and spreading lies about your opponent.”

The text messages were received today, October 24, 2010.

  2. Got one today anti-Weprin, claiming he “violated Jewish law” by voting in favor of gay marriage in NY. I texted them back something less than polite, and am flaming the bastards on my FB page. 😉

  3. I received one Tuesday in WI telling me to reelect my State Senator. I am on the do not call listing… doesn’t seem to be working very well.
