Why won't Jim Inhofe stop spamming me?

For months I've been getting spam from the Oklahoma Republican party. Ryan Cassin has been told that I do not wish to receive spam from the Inhofe campaign, yet the spam continues. I've asked politely several times for all of my addresses to be removed from the Inhofe/Republican database(s) but my requests have been ignored. Is it so damn important to win an election that a politician can spam whomever he wants whenever he wants?

My point is this:

Inhofe's campaign is spamming one email address that was only used to order pizza from Papa John's Pizza. When I ordered the pizza I do not remember seeing an optional checkbox to receive Inhofe spam next to the checkboxes for pepperoni, Italian sausage, onions and anchovies. There was no fine print that stated my email address would be signed up 'as a volunteer' for the Inhofe campaign. Nevertheless, I am getting spam after spam thanking me for 'being a volunteer' for the Inhofe campaign. Why? While I am a registered Republican, that status is soon to change. I cannot and will not be a member of a party that thinks spamming people is OK.

The Inhofe campaign is also spamming an email address that was only used to set up a web based email address at Nowhere on the web site does it say that I will be added to the Inhofe campaign 'as a volunteer'. Since I use coded email addresses every time I use an email address I know precisely when and where an email address was given out and for what purpose. That way, even if I forget giving out an email address, if I start getting emails from ebay sent to then I know that it is an email address I actually gave out.

I just called the Inhofe campaign headquarters again at 405.843.4294 to try YET AGAIN to get all of my addresses removed from the Inhofe database(s). Mr. Ryan Cassin again promisses to call me back. We'll see if he does.
