Why Do Republicans Trash the U.S. Census then Pretend to BE the U.S. Census?
Politically-motivated Republican resistance to the decennial U.S. Census has been well documented over the years. But a recent Republican National Committee fundraising letter masquerading as a "2010 Congressional District Census" appears to have been designed to create confusion among citizens by making them think it is the official decennial U.S. Census. (Google "RNC census fundraiser" for more than 2 million hits about this controversy.) Although the US Postal Service determined that the survey did not violate federal law, one of the criteria for evaluating this type of fraud accusation is the level of citizen confusion and compaints made to the U.S. Postal Inspector.
