In a Fundraising Email for Hurricane Michael Relief, Senator Bill Nelson Directs donors to ActBlue. An organization that helps Democrats raise money and saves donor emails for future fundraising efforts. Bill Nelson has no shame “It’s anything to win!” 😡
Sen. Bill Nelson (D) sent out an email encouraging people to donate money for hurricane Michael disaster relief. He included links to nonprofit groups that provide aid. But he did not disclose that the links for each group direct users to the website of ActBlue. A fundraiser site that raises money and saves donor emails for future fundraising efforts.
.@NelsonForSenate and Democrats should be horribly ashamed for building a donor list off a major disaster! Donations should be sent directly to relief organizations that will help people in need, NOT the Democrat Party. https://t.co/d3sF2ESul4

Hurricane Michael hit Florida on Wednesday as a category 4 storm, leaving hundreds of thousands of Floridians without power and killing at least four people in the state. After the storm devastated the Florida Panhandle, it hammered Georgia, the Carolinas, and Virginia, killing at least another two people—a child in Georgia and a man in North Carolina. In total, nearly 1.1 million people in six states have been left without power.
