I donated to a campaign. Maybe two hours after I donated I got an email asking for money.

The next morning I got another email asking for money.

I unsubscribed and they are not getting any more money.

I realize these are automated systems but they are WAAAY too aggressive and downright annoying.

Likewise I donated to a PAC...same shit. "OMG! Did you see this shit!!!! The sky is falling! Donate now or the world will end!!!!!!"

Maybe it works and that is the best way to get money even if they are pissing me off. I am aligned with their politics. I am not on board with being informed daily of why I need to give them more money.
