Over the last few years, several scammers have popped up in conservative politics in Minnesota. On their face, it looks like they are doing the Lord’s work – advocating for Second Amendment rights, pro-life views, election integrity and even supporting President Trump. But a little investigation reveals they are actually just building their own brand and raising money by cashing in on unsuspecting Minnesotans sympathetic to their message.
IN OTHER WORDS, THEY’RE SCAMMERS.
MINNESOTA GUN RIGHTS
Scamming is a family affair for brothers Ben Dorr, Chris Dorr and Aaron Dorr. They work together in several states creating pro-Second Amendment groups that on the surface look like grass roots lobbying efforts, but in reality are just fundraising schemes with little to no influence on actual public policy.
MINNESOTA RIGHT TO LIFE
Building on the fundraising success of Minnesota Gun Rights, Ben Dorr recently branched out to another conservative cause through creation of Minnesotans for Life. So far the group consists of a Facebook page, but knowing Ben Dorr, this will grow into a full-fledged attempt to raise money from well-meaning pro-lifers in Minnesota who will be sympathetic to his rhetoric.
ACTION 4 LIBERTY
Action 4 Liberty is led by Jake Duesenberg, a notorious scammer who personally pocketed half of all money ever raised by Action 4 Liberty, according to the group’s five most recent filings with the IRS. In total, Duesenberg paid himself more than $300,000 — money that could have been spent promoting liberty or working to elect Republicans.
SIGNS YOU’RE BEING SCAMMED:
THEY’RE PLAYING YOU.
Every step of the way, Minnesota Republicans have stood with gun owners across the state. Republicans have stopped every attack by anti-gun Democrats on our constitutional rights. Right now, Senate Republicans are the only thing stopping Democrats from passing radical gun control.
So, why would Ben Dorr admit they “did everything in their power to disenfranchise gun owners from the Republican Party”? Because they are scammers, ultimately doing damage to our cause of protecting the Second Amendment.
