    Default Obama using fake Twitter messages in fight over gun control

    Obama using fake Twitter messages in fight over gun control

    A Texas Republican on Monday said President Obama's gun control campaign is a fraud based on fake messages over Twitter.

    Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) accused Obama of trying to make support for his position look stronger than it really is by flooding Twitter with messages from people who don't exist.

    "Obama's anti-gun campaign is a fraud," Stockman said. "Obama's supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress," he added. "I call upon the president to denounce this phony spam campaign."

    Stockman said that in response to Obama's call for people to tweet their congressman in support of gun control legislation, he received just 16 tweets. But he said all of these messages were identical, and that a closer look at them revealed that only six were from real people.

    "The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots," his office said in a press release. As evidence, he said these 10 tweets use default graphics and names, and have not engaged in any interaction with other people. Two of the tweets were sent at nearly the same time, and both follow just one person: Brad Schenck, Obama's former digital strategist.

    Stockman also added that only one of the six tweets from real people is a constituent of his in Texas.

    "If you are a real person who contacted us about your support for the president's anti-gun campaign, we are listening," Stockman said. "We do not agree with you, but we appreciate your sincere opinions and encourage you to continue to contact us.

    "But the vast majority of the president's supporters have no feelings because they fake profiles from spammers."

    Stockman said Obama's anti-gun activists "are trying to defraud Congress using the same scam that sells 'male enhancement pills.'"

    Just exactly why do think he handed out all those bama phones. Mind control. Some call it propaganda, others public relations but in the end, it's mind control.

    I wouldn't be surprized if Organizing For Action was involved. Barky was soliciting gun tragedy stories to be posted there. Instead, pro-gunners are saturating the site with posts about border agent Brian Terry who was shot with some of the Fast & Furious guns.

    So it can work both ways, if our guys catch on and give 'em a taste of their own medicine.
