A Florida Democrat running for U.S. Senate was busted Thursday morning for apparently masquerading a Hurricane Michael donation link as a Democrat fundraising tool.

“Speaking of fundraising during hurricane, this is interesting: The link his campaign posted to raise money for disaster relief efforts takes you to ActBlue, the Democrat’s fundraising engine. Building donor list through hurricane relief contributions? ,” according to Free Beacon’s Brent Scher.

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) is fighting for dear life to keep his seat against surging Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican.

ActBlue’s mission statement is to “empower small-dollar donors.” It is an independent software non-profit that has been used to raise over two billion dollars for Democrats and their causes since 2004.

Though Nelson could, in theory, direct the funds to Hurricane Michael relief from that link, why not just link directly to a fundraising effort that has already been established, like the Red Cross?

At the time of this publication, it appears that Nelson deleted the Tweet linking to ActBlue. His office did not respond to a comment request.
