Tell It Like It Is Removal Guide

April 2, 2024

This guide will walk you through the process of undergoing the Tell It Like It Is removal from your inbox. 

If you’re looking for a way to stop unwanted emails and ongoing junk mail from Tell It Like It Is, the super political action committee (PAC) supporting Chris Christie’s presidential campaign, read on.

Since the Christie campaign ended, you shouldn’t be getting any further mail (physical or email) from it, but if you are, you can opt out. 

How to Unsubscribe from the Tell It Like It Is Mailing List

When you receive physical mail from the Tell It Like It Is campaign, look for a contact number. 

Call it and ask to be removed from the mailing list. You can also email the super PAC at (but you’ll need to specify your mailing address). 

Depending on where you live, you may have additional rights. If you are a California, Nevada, or Virginia resident, you should technically be able to make your request through a separate link on the Tell It Like It Is site, as per the super PAC’s privacy policy.

Unfortunately, this link doesn’t work. 

If you live in a state with a consumer privacy law, email Tell It Like It Is and let them know that. 

What to Do If You Keep Receiving Tell It Like It Is Mail 

If you continue to receive physical mail from the Tell It Like It Is campaign after opting out, you should write “Refused: Return to sender” on the front of any unopened mail with a return address and put it back in the mail.

Additionally, if you vote early, the fact that you voted will be recorded in the county voter list, which should remove you from the mailing list for presidential campaigns. 

This removal happens due to campaigns having limited resources and therefore focusing their efforts on voters who haven’t yet voted. Keep in mind, however, that it can take some time for the county voter list to update.

How to Unsubscribe from the Tell It Like It Is Email List

You can unsubscribe directly from your inbox for Tell It Like It Is emails. 

To do so, open the email and click on the “Unsubscribe” link at the top of the email beside the sender’s name or at the bottom of the email.

Alternatively, you can send an email to and request to be removed via that route.

If, for some reason, you still receive Tell It Like It Is emails, you have a few options. 

You can move any new emails from the campaign to the “Junk” folder (which will teach some email programs that you want emails from that sender to be sent there in the future), block the email address, or set up a filter to automatically sort emails from the sender into the trash folder. 

Note that when you opt out, some promotions might already be in process, meaning you will still get some mail due to being grandfathered in. 

The Tell It Like It Is privacy policy covers this eventuality, “Please allow us a reasonable period of time in order to satisfy your request, as some promotions may already be in process.” 

How to Stay Off the Tell It Like It Is (And Other Super PACs) Mailing List for Good

In many cases, political action committees don’t even require you to sign up for their mailing list before you’re bombarded with communications. 

PACs can purchase your mailing address and other information from data brokers and begin contacting you at any point. 

Because of this, your best option for stopping unwanted and/or unsolicited mail from PACs – as well as telemarketers, phone scammers, and other junk mail – is to opt out of data brokers. These are companies that collect your information from sources as varied as public records, social media profiles, and other brokers and sell it to political campaigns and any other third-party entity willing to pay a minimal fee. 

Unfortunately, there are more than 500 data brokers, and you will need to opt out of each one that has a profile on you. Additionally, you’ll need to opt out repeatedly, as data brokers routinely reactivate profiles when new information is uncovered online. 

Alternatively, sign up for a data broker removal company such as DeleteMe to have the opt-out process handled for you.
