The Democratic National Committee (DNC) and other Democratic groups are using a card for First Lady Michelle Obama’s upcoming birthday to increase their bottom line. The First Lady turns 51 this Saturday.

“I don’t know if you heard, but Michelle Obama’s 51st birthday is three days away,” DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz of Florida writes in an email, noted The Washington Examiner. “And I bet that you think the First Lady is pretty great – so I wanted to make sure you got the chance to sign your name to her birthday card.”
After signing the card, The Examiner notes you are taken to a portal where you are encouraged to donate up to $2,000 to the Democratic Party:
Thanks for signing our card for Michelle! Now, can you take the next step and support Democrats?
Unlike our opponents, we don’t take money from special interests, corporate lobbyists, and political action committees.
What we have is supporters like you. Join us by by making a donation today.
An email from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) strikes a similar tone:
We just love Michelle, from her initiatives to help military families and promote healthy eating, to her steadfast support of her daughters and husband.
And we want to show her — with a birthday card signed by 100,000 committed Democrats!
