Your votes determined the worst of the worst political fundraising emails of 2014.

Hold your nose and start scrolling…

“The Howler Award” for the email with the biggest abuse of ALLCAPS in a subject line. WHY ARE YOU YELLING?


“The Richard Head Memorial Trophy” for sounding like a huge jerk. We know you have a ton of money to raise, but you don’t have to be an a**hole about it.


“The Chicken Little Cup” for the email with the most apocalyptic subject line. The sky is falling!

“The Buzzworthable-est Award” for the email with the most over the top subject line. What happens next will blow your mind.

“The ‘Murican Patriot Award” for the best user submitted comment on these awful, awful emails. You’re our heroes!

“”I’m a therapist. I see people in ‘major crisis’ on a daily basis. This ain’t what it looks like.” ~ Kathryn S.

“The I’m Not Mad, I’m Just Disappointed Award” for the the guilt-trippiest email. Grandma would be so proud.


…and the award for all around worst, most shameful, most pathetic email of 2014 goes to…

Andy Whallon and his campaign team, for turning one of the most serious global health threats in a generation into a shameless plea for campaign cash. We’re actually kind of impressed he had the cojones to click that “send” button.
