Pelosi Settles Lawsuit Over ‘Invasive and Harassing’ Texts, Pays Illinois Man $7,500

Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) campaign was caught violating federal law and was forced to settle with an Illinois man who sued her.

Pelosi paid $7,500 to a Bolingbrook resident named Jorge Rojas.

Rojas accused the former House speaker of violating federal robocalling laws.

In October 2022, Rojas filed a 13-page lawsuit in the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois accusing Pelosi and her campaign of violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991.

Rojas’ lawsuit said: “As the Supreme Court has explained, Americans passionately disagree about many things.

“But they are largely united in their disdain for robocalls.

“The government receives a staggering number of complaints about robocalls—3.7 million complaints in 2019.

“The States likewise field a constant barrage of complaints.

“This case involves a campaign by Defendants which placed illegal, campaign-related prerecorded and automated texts to Plaintiff’s telephone number, which were not consented to.

“Plaintiff registered his phone number on the Do Not Call Registry to obtain solitude from invasive and harassing telemarketing calls.

“The call prevented Plaintiff from using his phone for legitimate purposes.

“Call 1. On or about November 30, 2021, at 12:12 PM Chicago time, Plaintiff received a text from Defendants, from 844-616-1016.

“The text identified above contained an image of Pelosi.

“Call 2. On or about November 30, 2021, at 12:12 PM Chicago time, Plaintiff received a text from Defendants, from 844-616-1016.

“The text identified above stated: ‘It’s Nancy Pelosi. I don’t usually send you texts this long, but this is dire. Three reports just revealed Dems’ Majority is in critical danger. I need you to read my entire message, then rush $13 before tonight’s End of Month Deadline to keep Republicans from EVER holding power again.’”

According to Insider:

But months later, on February 22, Rojas moved to dismiss the suit against Pelosi.

And according to federal campaign finance disclosures made public on Friday, the dismissal came after Rojas received a $7,500 payment marked “Settlement” from Pelosi’s congressional campaign.
