(2012 and NOW) The Barrack Obama for President re-elect camp is apparently using government resources to campaign to Internet users. They are using a .gov domain, and apparent hosting paid for by tax payer dollars. Domains cost money, smtp relays cost money, hosting for the .gov website and email costs money and everything else that has to do with the domain or website costs money.
The question is; Are tax payer dollars also paying the individual who manages the emails? We already know the rest (.gov) is paid for by using tax payer dollars.
The Barrack Obama campaign had recently been embroiled in a scandal/controversy where Obama had been using “Air Force One” as transportation to different locations to campaign. All the while, the Obama camp has been miss-using funds on the Internet promoting his camp.
Using a Jet that costs millions of dollars to fly and maintain is one thing, and the use of .gov resources is the same. Either way, “Air Force One” and “.gov” costs tax payers, not Obama.
The Obama camp has sent several campaign messages via the .gov website every month. Emails cost money especially on the scale of the government email list, the cost is maximum. “If I wanted to email 100,000 people on my server, I would have to pay extra for the 95,000 extra smtp relays and a few hundred additional relays costs me $15.00,” says Matthew Bailey a Internet Webmaster and goes on to say, “the U.S. governments list of emails where the emails originate from could number into the millions*.”
The Obama camp is plainly miss-using tax payer dollars.
