POLITICKING and the art of fundraising, WTF?

Below is a screenshot of my work cell phone from the other day. FULL DISCLOSURE: My name is NOT Andrew and I didn’t sign up for any of that s**t. I am about the least likely person on earth to contribute to that campaign. I’ve gotten 4 more texts since I took that shot, too.  I’ve been getting this garbage for about a year now, but it’s really escalated lately.  

Serious question - do other candidates sink to the same level of spamming their supporters? Does anyone fall for this crap? This reeks to me of a simple money grab, which really wouldn’t surprise me (well, nothing would surprise me at this point).

I get emails from numerous campaigns (probably from voting in both R and D primaries, I guess), but absolutely nothing like this crap.
