Using your old general campaign email list to run again in four years? Spam.

Can anyone else see what is wrong with this picture?

“Democratic insiders” say that Sen. John Kerry’s (D-MA) “unprecedented direct access to so many current and onetime supporters” — through a database of 3 million voters he compiled during last year’s presidential campaign — “is a huge advantage heading into the next Democratic presidential primary,” The Hill reports.

“Only the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and can boast of contact lists as large, say Democrats familiar with Kerry’s database.”

Meanwhile, “the political team Kerry has hired to staff his new leadership political action committee, Keeping America’s Promise, indicates that he is gearing up” for another shot at the White House.

I signed up for Kerry’s email list back during the pre-convention general campaign, not because I like Kerry (even thought at the time I did), but because he was the FREAKING nominee! And, the email list was one of the best ways to feel involved in the campaign. I’m still getting emails from this guy, and that’s one of the reasons I’m not using that particular email address.
