Too Poor for Gore?

DRAFTGORE.COM just sent me an Email asking for money to run an add in the NY Times, and I’m desperate enough to do it. Are they legitimate?

Best answer: It has gotten press coverage. Include a press release in Campaigns and Elections.

Response by poster: Thanks, AlongDecember, for answering the question without jumping to conclusions. I gave Dennis Kucinich a little money the last time around.

Mod note: A few comments removed. The question is about the legitimacy of the site/organization, not whether you think Gore is likely to run for office.

Best answer: They're connected to Liberty Concepts, a high-profile legitimate campaign consultancy (Andrew Cuomo, Ciro Rodriguez). They take contributions through ActBlue, not a guarantee of "legitimacy" per se but a strong indicator of operating in the open. They have actually bought radio time. Last quarter they raised $67K and disbursed $41K. There were two other PACs with "Gore" in their name that raised and disbursed nothing.

An ad from was in today's New York Times. That was probably the one they were asking money for.
