Federal candidates hit prospective donors hard over the weekend before Sunday's deadline for the latest quarterly campaign-finance reports.
U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, the first practicing Hindu in Congress, was a little off in her microtargeting.
Harmeet Dhillon, an attorney and the vice chairwoman of the California Republican Party, who is Sikh, had some fun with Gabbard's outreach.
I have so many "friends" emailing me today, this being a filing deadline for fundraising benchmarks for candidates running for office. Somehow Tulsi Gabbard became my "friend" because she and her team are emailing me incessantly.
Here is a clue my dear -- I appreciate that you may think that because you are a Hawaiian Hindu Democrat (although not South Asian by descent in any way, shape or form) somehow I, a Sikh Republican from California, will feel compelled to overcome multiple barriers to give money to you, it ain't gonna happen.
Please stop spamming me and whoever gave her my name from their Indian American mailing list of some sort, may you come back in your next life as a dung beetle.
