Congressman Blasts Obama For Using Fake Twitter Messages To Fight Gun Control

Rep Steve Stockman (R-TX) made accusations against Barack Obama on Monday over his gun control campaign claiming that is it fraud based with fake messages over Twitter. Stockman claims that Obama is seeking to give the appearance of support greater than what he has for gun control legislation by flooding Twitter with messages from people that don't exist.

"Obama's anti-gun campaign is a fraud," Stockman said. "Obama's supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress," he added. "I call upon the president to denounce this phony spam campaign."

When Obama called for people to tweet their congressmen in support of more gun control legislation, Stockman said he received a mere 16 tweets. However, he notes that upon closer examination, only six of the tweets were from six actual people and that the messages were all identical.

"The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots," his office said.

Then, in a press release issued by Stockman, he writes, "The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots."

• They all use the default “egg” avatar.
• They have account names resembling names automatically suggested by Twitter.
• They have engaged in no human interaction.
• They have tweeted almost nothing promotional, sponsored messages pushing real estates websites and other liberal “grassroots” campaigns.
• They follow mostly MSNBC anchors or media outlets, not actual people.

His press release went on to point out, "Reporter Robert Stacy McCain’s investigation of the fraudulent Obama campaign, available at, finds the majority of the Obama-supporting accounts were created in less than 48 hours before contacting members of Congress."

"Even more interesting, Stockman staff find two accounts happened to tweet Stockman back-to-back," the press release continued. "Both have only one follower, former Obama digital strategist Brad Schenck. Schenck somehow found and followed them before they ever tweeted anything, followed anyone or followed any real people. Of the six real people who contacted Stockman only one can be verified as a constituent. One lives outside the district and the remaining four do not list where they live."

“If you are a real person who contacted us about your support for the President’s anti-gun campaign, we are listening. We do not agree with you, but we appreciate your sincere opinions and encourage you to continue to contact us,” said Stockman. “But the vast majority of the President’s supporters have no feelings because they fake profiles from spammers.”

“The White House has some explaining to do. My own staff, and others looking into Obama’s Twitter campaign, find the vast majority of messages are coming from fraudulent accounts. Some of these accounts are linked directly to a former Obama staffer. To what extent is the White House involved in this attempt to defraud Congress,” said Stockman.

Stockman ultimately said that the Obama anti-gun campaign was "using the same scam techniques that sell male enhancement pills."

    Obama admin is NOT GOOD at creating twitter followers. Maybe he should get his ObamaCare website people to work on that?

    Obama is such a child... a spoiled contemtable child.. if he doesn't get his own way, he pouts or cheats. It is sickening and pathetic that he is the president of a once great country.

  • Horatio Bullwink

    Yes...Another Example of a POS POTUS!...and so arrogant...but I am reminded of the folks that put him into office...They are like the donkey pied piper following!

    Unfortunately, Obama has no integrity except in the area of consistently trying to destroy America and to rule as a dictator - this is not easy for me to say as an optomist but how he tries to twist every word and action to conform to his philosophy - disrespecting the Constitution, free choice, and God and people's American rights - this is the only conclusion - He must be impeached or people must stop him and his agenda while he goose steps to have the New World Order. The other traitors in government in both political parties (Dems - full steam ahead; Repubs - week kneed consent) need to be routed out and leave men and women who follow the Constitution to run the government and get it under controll

    Bush and Clinton were NWO light. Obama is NWO overnight.

    Obama is a Socialist Fraud.

  • fwiw

    This is now the expected behavior from the administration and their followers which include most of the media. It is not just expected, but it is accepted. That's the real tragedy.

    We all know that obama supporters think they are entitled to multiple votes.

    Write your reps and senators, demand action. Just like odumbo demands a vote. This out right fraud on congress. I this traces back to any one who has ever had anything to do with odumbo then odumbo should be impeached ASAP oh and then do a impeachment on crazy uncle joe just for the hell of it because he is not any better. IDK who is next in like after that but who ever it is I am sure will get the idea of what could happen if they even mention gun control
