The Fight Continues…

Our team here at Revolution Messaging is continuing our fight to end political text message spam and people are paying attention. The Associated Press put out an article by Beth Fouhy helping spread our message to the Federal Communications Commission – they must end this practice now before it becomes even more costly for voters. We are asking everyone to visit PocketSpammers.com to sign our petition and end political text spam today.

But that’s not all we have going on here – our tasty friend Sammy has something to say as well: No matter how tasty, a bribe is still a bribe. Atlantic writer Nancy Scola wrote an article on our talking sandwich video questioning presidential nominee Mitt Romney and Representative Paul Ryan’s motives for handing out free sandwiches during the Wisconsin GOP primary.

What will we come out with next? You’ll just have to wait and see.


No Matter How Tasty, A Bribe Is Still A Bribe

There are some days at Revolution Messaging when defending democracy involves cutting edge technology, organizing members via mobile, getting websites developed and producing top-notch media.

Then there are other days when we make a talking sandwich video.

During the Wisconsin GOP primary election, Governor Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan were seen at Cousins Subs in Waukesha illegally soliciting voters with a tasty free sandwich.

Romney was not just being unpresidential by doling out sandwiches, but he was participating in small time fraud – the sort of petty crime that even Richard Nixon would turn his nose up at.

This may not have swayed the outcome in Wisconsin, but won’t someone think of the sandwiches?

 

 


What’s Happening at the Revolution?

There have been a lot of exciting things to report at Revolution Messaging this year, so we figured we would put them all in one blog post!

First off, we would like to welcome two new members to our team: former official White House videographer Arun Chaudhary who brings his unique and celebrated brand of political movie making to our roster of clients and Kate Kennedy as a veteran of the successful “We Are Ohio” labor battle last year.

We are also proud to announce Revolution Messaging was recognized as an industry leader in mobile technology, social media engagement, microsite development and online advertising. Our team won 8 American Association of Political Consultants and Campaigns & Elections Magazine’s awards.

Don’t forget to check out our new website, “RevolutionMessaging.com”, we launched at the beginning of 2012. We’ve added a case study of how to creatively use mobile at your conferences, as well as links to some new projects we’ve recently rolled out.

These projects include both PocketSpammers.com and ScotusLive.com. Intrigued, aren’t you?

PocketSpammers.com is our campaign to end political text messaging spam. Please go and sign our petition to the FCC if you haven’t already.

In response to the Supreme Court’s refusal to allow cameras into the healthcare debate, our team imagined  what we think the judges are doing behind those closed doors… visit  ScotusLive.com to see what the Justices don’t want you to see!

Lastly, we have a few congratulations to give out throughout the office:

  • We welcomed the newest and youngest member of the Revolution Messaging family on    March 8th – Courtney Sieloff and her husband Luke Peterson gave birth to a beautiful baby boy – Teddy Emil Peterloff.
  • Vegan Love! Gabe Hammersmith is marrying his fiancé Brenda on April 12th, 2012.
  • Sam Lozier will have a Better Home and Garden soon, as he is marrying his fiancé Erin on May 26th, 2012.

Be sure to keep an eye out for anything new coming out of Revolution Messaging’s headquarters!
