RUSH LIMBAUGH SPONSORED CALL FOR DONATIONS TO RESCIND OBAMACARE - IS THIS LEGITIMATE?

Posted on 06/29/2013 12:48:32 PM PDT by spiderfern

Since the ID was "Washington DC" originated, I let it go to voicemail. Frantic male voice professed the call was sponsored by Rush Limbaugh and IF I gave a generous donation, I'd be sent a Rush Limbaugh decal for my auto. I listened to Rush last week from Tuesday through Friday and I heard NO MENTION of sponsoring an idea of his to RESCIND OBAMACARE! In the event any Freepers rec'd a similar call, whom do we report this to in the event of a major HOAX?

Putting a RL decal on your vehicle will only get it “keyed” by a subhuman, lib-dem POS. Sounds and smells like BS, anyway.

I would contact Limbaugh through his webpage (does he have a Contact page?). It sounds bogus to me too, but if it is a scam, Rush and his staff should be made aware of it. Don't know if anything can be done to find the source of the call, but Rush may at least want to warn his listeners not to fall for this hoax.

If this were legit, wouldn’t Rush record the message himself?

Sounds scammy.

No part of this sounds like anything Rush would ever do. He thinks his audience consists of adults, regardless of age, who will take it upon themselves to act in their self-interest.

The operative word here is "adult."

Was it using Rush’s actual voice?it sounds like a scam and rush has a helluva lawsuit win if they use his voice without permission, even just a recorded bit from his show.

I get lots of suspicious phone calls, e-mails, and mail solicitations. If I want to contribute something, I always go directly to a known and reliable source. At every turn, I see the left trying to play us, and unless I am expecting a call and see a known ID, I never answer a call.

Rush doesn’t do stuff like that. Libs do stuff like that.
