Skip to comments.Groups forging messages to Elected Officials
Posted on 10/19/2019 11:44:40 AM PDT by johnsmom
A heads up for patriots. I received a notification from the offices of NC pols Richard Burr, Thom Tillis, and Virginia Foxx that they had received and would soon reply to correspondence from me. I had NOT (this time) created the correspondence. Turns out a group called Seniors Speak Out (SSO) and Voter Voice (VV) had forged my name and email address to the correspondence delivered to Burr, Tillis, and Foxx.
I found the administrator of SSO Nona Bear and SSOs blog, twitter, and Linkedin accounts. None of the direct message functions allowed contact. Turned out that VV had a functioning contact phone and Tamika was able to remove my name from the database of both SSO and VV.
I made a report to the FBI Internet Crimes Division, Identity Theft.org , my local police, and called the three pols offices to give them a heads up. Foxxs office was able to pull up the letter and read it to me. THIS time the letter was about an upcoming bill and (lucky for me) was not a threat or other such nonsense. Last thing I want is the Secret Service knocking down my door over something I did not write.
Keep an eye on your email notifications. In this heated political climate expect nefarious activity from now until the elections. Report it.
One can search Voter Voice Data Breach for more information about these criminal enterprises.
Voter Voice sounds like a generic software provider for the convenience of anyone who wants to lobby or campaign... it is, however, based out of Louisiana, just as was Wade Rathke’s ACORN... which may or may not relate.
Neal Fuller founded VoterVoice in February 2000 after working on behalf of trade associations in Louisiana a state well known as a proving ground for political pundits and consultants. As information technology became increasingly available, scalable, and affordable, Neal saw a tremendous opportunity for political stakeholders of all sizes no longer would advanced technologies be restricted to elite groups possessing big memberships, big bank accounts, big staffs, or a national focus.
With an insiders perspective on the scale and operations of typical state and local business organizations and trade associations, we sketched out our first plans, and developed a powerful, affordable and manageable system that:
Keeps supporters and association members up to date on political issues
Pro-actively drives supporters to participate in the political process
Accurately monitors grassroots activities
Builds organizational value
Contributes to the strategic planning process
We are proud to deliver technology that is re-shaping political communications. Our goal is simple: enable government relations professionals to share and leverage their intimate knowledge of the legislative process to their grassroots advocates at the lowest possible price.
VoterVoice has become the online grassroots solution for over 1100 clients, and boasts extremely high client renewal rates and industry-leading customer satisfaction.
Seniors Speak Out was created by the Healthcare Leadership Councils Medicare Today as a resource for older Americans, caregivers and advocates to help ensure seniors have access to high quality health care.
The Healthcare Leadership Council (HLC), a coalition of chief executives from all disciplines within the health care system, launched Medicare Today in November 2004, to reach out to Medicare beneficiaries who needed reliable information on how to get the greatest value from the Medicare benefits provided by the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) of 2003.
The Healthcare Leadership Council administers the partnership of more than 400 national and local organizations including National Association of Family Physicians and National Alliance for Hispanic Health. Medicare Today develops innovative tools for all partners to use, commissions research studies and undertakes earned media efforts and outreach to inform beneficiaries about the value of the new benefits under the MMA.
To make this website as helpful as possible, we will be highlighting community voices, and we encourage you to share your thoughts. Two notable voices that you will see contributing regularly to this website are Bob Blancato and Nona Bear. Their wealth of experience will bring different perspectives to our discussions.
Bob Blancato is Executive Director of the National Association of Nutrition and Aging Services Programs. He has more than 20 years of federal government service, including 13 years on the senior staff of the House Select Committee on Aging and a presidential appointment to be the Executive Director of the 1995 White House Conference on Aging. Bob is currently on the Boards of the American Society on Aging and the National Council on Aging. In January 2013, Bob was selected to be the Volunteer State President of AARP in Virginia.
Nona Bear is a community health care activist, working closely with seniors and patients groups to help them better understand the benefits of Medicare Part D. She is passionate about the program and has been working in the field for many years.
Add to their list of accomplishments...Steals and forges names and emails for marketing/lobbying correspondence to politicians that may or may not reflect the opinion of the victim/constituent.
HLC appears to be advocating for the privatization of healthcare if Sourcewatch is accurate. Odd than an AARP guy would be for that.
