Have you ever received a text message from a political campaign that you didn’t want? Well, it turns out that even the former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, isn’t above violating federal robocalling laws. Pelosi’s congressional campaign recently settled a lawsuit filed by an Illinois man who accused the campaign of sending him 21 texts between November 2021 and July 2022, despite previously placing himself on the Do Not Call Registry in 2008.
The man, Jorge Rojas, sought a minimum of $31,500 in damages, including $1,500 for each text message he received. While the lawsuit was eventually dismissed after Rojas received a $7,500 settlement payment from Pelosi’s campaign, the incident highlights the deceitful tactics used by political campaigns to reach potential voters and gain support.
This is just another example of how politicians like Pelosi prioritize their own interests over the needs of the American people. It’s time for our elected officials to start focusing on the issues that matter most to the American people, rather than their political ambitions. Let’s hold our politicians accountable and demand transparency and accountability in government.
