Obama Uses Database to Support Dem Congressional Candidate

We’ve already noted how President Obama has repurposed his campaign database as a tool to rally grassroots support for his political agenda.

Now, he’s taken the next logical step. Obama has allowed the use of his “Organizing for America” (OFA) database to help Scott Murphy, the Democratic candidate in a hotly contested special congressional race in New York’s 20th district. Around 60,000 e-mails were sent out on Wednesday urging Obama’s supporters to also support Murphy.

As the Washington Times further reports,

Mr. Obama’s use of his OFA database, which includes more than 13 million names, along with e-mail addresses and phone numbers, is the second time in the last week he has, as president, leveraged the work of his campaign’s unprecedented organization.

Last weekend, Mr. Obama taped a video message calling on OFA supporters to go out into their neighborhoods and ask their neighbors and friends to sign a pledge supporting his $3.6 trillion budget and give their personal information to OFA volunteers, to be added to their already enormous database.

All we can say is: Wake up, Republicans! Obama’s database is getting bigger and more powerful every day. If the GOP doesn’t start playing “catch up” very soon, it’s going to be in for a big, unpleasant surprise in the 2010 mid-term elections.
