No stranger to controversy, the Donald Trump campaign was dealt a serious blow this week when Joshua Thorne filed a class action suit against Trump for President, accusing the group of sending thousands of unsolicited text messages without consent.
The campaign committee allegedly used mass text marketing firm Tatango to send the messages to thousands of numbers, some of which may have been randomly generated. Tatango advertises their ability to send up to 42,435 simultaneous text messages.
Without the prior written consent of cellphone users, Trump for President may be fined up to $1500 for each unsolicited message sent. Tatango offers a free guide to customers detailing how to avoid such fines.
