Diving into Politics In Minnesota's Scott Honour announces deep campaign bench, Bluestem picked up this bauble in Charley Shaw's article:
Honour’s campaign released an e-mail Tuesday afternoon announcing 12 people or their firms are working for him in positions ranging from field work to polling. . . .
Wesley Donehue, digital. Donehue is the CEO of Push Digital based in Columbia, S.C.
GOP-friendly MinnPost columnist Cyndy Brucato reported in Scott Honour, GOP candidate for governor, names campaign team:
Digital-communication duties will be handled by Push Digital.
Will Push Digital supply these services for Brand Management and Social Media? From the Push Digital website:
In many cases, people are already talking about you. Some comments are positive, while others are negative. Using new search tools, we monitor websites and social networks for activity about you. We leave blog comments, tweets and Facebook messages to respond. If the messages are positive, we begin a dialogue with the user in an attempt to recruit him/her as an activist. If the messages are negative, we push back with the truth.
In short, paid trolls.
Outsourcing the Honour troll ops to South Carolina isn't the smartest move. (We'll leave the speculation about how South Carolina rewards stalking to the smart people).
Taking a little time from our spring planting, Bluestem will do a little free concern trolling for the aspiring investment banker's grand ambition.
Invest that money in Minnesota's local troll community. Surely some of the fine folks here could use the coin and you'd help the economy of the state you adopted several years ago and you could truly say: "all your base are belong to us."
You'd own them.
