The political arm of House Republicans is deploying a prechecked box to enroll donors into repeating monthly donations -- and using ominous language to warn them of the consequences if they opt out: "If you UNCHECK this box, we will have to tell Trump you're a DEFECTOR." ... The prechecked box is the same tactic and tool that resulted in a surge of refunds and credit card complaints when used by Trump's campaign last year, according to an investigation published by The New York Times over the weekend.
The Trump operation issued more than $122 million in refunds in the 2020 cycle, which was 10.7 percent of what Trump's campaign, the Republican National Committee and their shared accounts raised.
