Texas GOP accidentally emails Democrats their electoral strategy:
Yahoo! News ^ | November 26, 2019 | Clark Mindock, The Independent

Posted on 11/27/2019 8:03:22 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

A document with the Texas Republican Party’s strategy for the 2020 election was emailed to Democrats, showing a plan over the next 12 months to push back on the narrative that the GOP lacks diversity and counteract Donald Trump's potential negative impact on the race.

The document, which apparently began appearing in the inboxes of Democrats this week, lays out concerns about the "polarising nature" of Mr Trump's presidency, as well as ways to counteract the "narrative driven by Democrats" that the GOP lacks diversity in a state where a quickly growing Hispanic population has sowed considerable concern that the reliably red state could soon be competitive.

“Starting after the Primary, the RPT will generate microsites for negative hits against the Democrat candidates in our twelve target race—we expect each microsite to be roughly $500,” the document, which was obtained by the Dallas Morning News, reads.

The websites, according to the document, will mimic the names of Democratic candidates, and will reroute to pages featuring attack ads on those same individuals.

“We will then begin rolling out these websites, prioritising the races that were within 4 per cent in the 2018 election,” it reads.

The Morning News reports that Democrats see 2020 as an opportunity to build on gains they saw last year, when they took 12 seats from Republicans to narrow the partisan divide in the state House to 83-67.

Sounds fake; websites mimicking opposition names sounds like a stupid Democrat trick. I don’t think most GOP organizations are that stupid.

How do you even get a list of those email addresses into your system to email them? My email provider doesn’t have Democrat email addresses in a list for my use.

What the heck?

Yeah, I had that thought too. Maybe the Texas GOP has a mole or saboteur.

Nope, it was sabotage.

We know there are spies at the county level and know how to protect communication.

It's tighter at the State level. This was intentional.

This kind of thing isn't an error, or gaffe, or mixup -- it's espionage. It'll keep happening until the perps start to stop showing up for work and no one knows what happened to them. I mean that in the nicest possible way of course. Thanks Tolerance Sucks Rocks.

I don’t think this was ‘accidental’ - I think we have stealth Dems like Strauss was and our current Speaker Dennis “Hey, I want to use you to cause the more conservative Texas House members to be replaced by my cronies or by Democrats” - and got recorded - Bonner. Our state GOP leadership seems oversupplied with fools and stealth Democrats.

Whoever it is they’re lucky they didn’t leak from the DNC, people die doing that.
