So here's another dirty trick by the Ted Cruz campaign. Try to act surprised.
Courtesy of HuffPo:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is out with a deceptive new mailer that masquerades as official government business and promises people there's a "check enclosed" when it's actually asking for money instead.
A New Jersey resident sent The Huffington Post the latest piece of mail he received from Cruz's campaign. The envelope appears to have come from Cruz's Senate office and has his name printed the same way it often is for Senate business. In small type the mailer clarifies that it is for "personal" matters and was not sent at taxpayers' expense. It also promises a check.
But the check inside -- which is made out to the Cruz campaign, not to the voter -- is fake. The accompanying letter promises that a "group of generous supporters" have promised to match donations received in response to the mailer.
HuffPo has the actual letter inside so you can read for yourself just how sleazy the Cruz campaign is willing to get in order to trick people out of their money.
You know it's like Cruz decided that everybody thinks hes' a slimy POS anyway, so why not go for it.
