Actually, I should be saying “Spamming from the Judge,” as that is exactly what happened down in Arkansas.
The footer of the message looked like this:
The Judge Griffen for Justice Campaign obtained your email address from a direct marketing provider. The provider gives us email addresses of people who have indicated that marketers may use their email address to inform them about products, information, or services. Our Campaign does not use your email address for any purpose other than to communicate with you about the campaign.
I don’t see any opt-out link in there. Then again, maybe Judges don’t need opt-out in their messages.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen campaign spam, and I doubt it will be the last.
