Fundraising Breakdown Series: Elise Stefanik
"Congresswoman Elise Stefanik’s team knows how to run a fundraising program online. They’re consistently one of the most powerful digital presences on the right, and when they see an opportunity they always jump on it."

Social Media

Nick Clegg doesn’t think Facebook is polarizing
"But in terms of incentives, this is the bit that maybe we have not been articulate enough about. Firstly, the people who pay our lunch don’t like the content next to incendiary, unpleasant material. And if you needed any further proof of that, this last summer, a number of major advertisers boycotted Facebook because they felt we weren’t doing enough on hate speech."

The Beltway firm Holtzman Vogel Josefiak Torchinsky PLLC sent an email noting "this decision has no impact on calls using an artificial or prerecorded voice. These so called ‘robocalls’ are not impacted by this decision and still remain a TCPA violation unless certain exceptions are met.”"
