“FINAL NOTICE”: DNC Under Fire for Sending Fundraising Pleas Resembling Collection Letters
Amid a fundraising and messaging crisis, the Democrats are desperate to pull the party back from the brink of destruction. Tom Perez’s plan? Sending out of touch and crude fundraising letters to working class people that look like collection letters. Another gaffe by the party of Obama, Hillary, Pelosi and Schumer.
Seattle-based designer Andrew Saturn tweeted pictures of the donation plea.

Comedian Andy Richter, now fan of President Trump, chided the Democrats’ crude donations letter.
“Shame on you,” Richter tweeted.

Others were far from impressed by the fundrasing campaign.

The design is what is the problem. The bold "final notice" font. I would be intimidated if I got that in the mail. .-.

The RNC is outraising the DNC by millions.
According to The Hill, the DNC raised $3.8 million for the past month, compared to the RNC’s staggering $10.2 million — a record low for the month of July for the Democrats, which they haven’t hit since 2007, when the party raised $3.4 million,” according to CBS News.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) won the money race against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for the month of July by over $6 million, proving to be yet another stumble for the Democratic party as it tries to regain its footing after the 2016 election.

The lag in Democratic fundraising comes as a new blow to DNC chief Tom Perez’s first six months as leader of the committee.
In an interview with NBC News, Perez said the organization has “had a lot of rebuilding to do” in recent months. “We’ve already made a lot of down payments on the new DNC.”
DNC National Press Secretary Michael Tyler told CBS News in a statement, “While we’re still focused on building up our team and hiring fundraising staff, we’re witnessing robust grassroots enthusiasm with a majority of our contributions coming from small-dollar contributions.”
