Republican spying

This is just pathetic. I heard about the Republican plan to send out a bunch of CDs/DVDs containing a multimedia presentation on the gay marriage issue, exhorting Michelle Bachmann clones to contact their senators and ensure that we have the right to vote on a proposal to put discrimination in our state's constitution. That's their position, so it's not terribly surprising. What is surprising, however, is that the CD that is being handed out collects information and sends it back to Republican Party HQ without telling anybody.

That sounds like spyware to me, and that's a pretty big no-no unless you want to piss people off. Why is the Republican Party not telling people that they are harvesting information? What do they plan on doing with it?
