Missouri Congressman Clay: “First, the Trump Administration tried to rig the 2020 Census with a racist citizenship question to intentionally increase the undercount of non-white persons. And now, they send an “imitation census” mailing to confuse Americans while trying to raise money for the President’s reelection. With every action, this president and his enablers show their complete contempt for the truth, the rule of law and the Constitution.”

Congressman Wm. Lacy Clay (D) Missouri Tuesday blasted the Republican National Committee and President Trump’s reelection campaign for authorizing and distributing mailers to targeted households in Missouri’s 1st Congressional District, and other areas across the country, that are deliberately designed to look like official Census forms, but in fact, are purely partisan fundraising pitches.

The deceptive mailing, which is entitled “2019 Congressional District Census,” is not authorized by, and has nothing to do with the 2020 Census.

"This is a shameful attempt to deceive and confuse my constituents for purely partisan purposes,” said Congressman Clay. “I am demanding that U.S. Postal Service investigate this attempt to trample on the rights of residents who deserve to be fully counted by sending out this outrageous attempt to weaponize the Census for political purposes. The word Census should never, ever be used in a political mailing seeking to raise money from residents who may feel confused or threatened by a document that closely mimics the actual Census form.”

In additional to demanding an investigation by USPS, Congressman Clay will be holding a series of town hall meetings across Missouri’s 1st congressional district to combat confusion and remind residents of why everyone has a stake in ensuring a complete count for the 2020 Census.

Mr. Clay, who led U.S. House Oversight efforts over the 2010 Census, the most accurate census of all time, added, “ First, the Trump Administration tried to rig the 2020 Census with a racist citizenship question to intentionally increase the undercount of non-white persons. And now, they send an “'mitation census”'mailing to confuse Americans while trying to raise money for the President’s reelection. With every action, this president and his enablers show their complete contempt for the truth, the rule of law and the Constitution.”
