According to DNC emails leaked by Wikileaks, the a super PAC was paying people to go online and push back against Sanders supporters in various fora. No specific mention of DP, though.

I had always assumed that the existence of such people was a myth. I've sometimes been accused of being such (for the right wing) myself by the tin foil coiffed among us.

And? Bet the RNC is doing exactly the same.... we can see it on these boards. Plus the RNC has been using dirty tricks for years.. robocalls that tell people to go and vote a day after the actual vote... and stuff like this.

It's politics, it has long held lowbrow antics like this. Now, instead of sitting in a car, driving around the city taking down posters for opposing candidates, you sit online and troll the opposition.

I believe that PACs working for politicians on the left and the right have been doing stuff like this for years.

This is nothing new.It's the way that the game is played.

:lol:

I am so disillusioned, nothing surprises me anymore. Next we'll find out that voter fraud is real.

It is sort of like the Russians and dope supped up athletes. You cannot let someone off, because you think others do it too.

Paid posters is old hat. No question they are used by all political parties. No question they post here on DP.

Hell, Russia is famous for their efforts.

The internet, and all it's tentacles, should be viewed as entertainment first, and factual information second.

Is there any wonder why wiki is "user" edited?

How could you think it was a myth with some of the posters we have here on DP.

You know these people don't believe what they post, mostly because it is impossible what they say.

Somebody saying Hillary is the most trustworthy candidate to ever run, has to be a paid poster.

I wouldn't say that. I have never seen a more corrupt and dishonest candidate.

I know, that is my point

They had to be paid to post that because nobody could ever actually believe that.
