Political Spam – Part II

from the shut-'em-down dept

Following up on Friday’s post about political spam, the company that hosted California gubernatorial candidate Bill Jones’ website shut him down on Friday for the spam. They were back up on Saturday with a different hosting provider. It’s amazing that the press secretary hasn’t just said “we messed up big time” and is still trying to justify what they did. In related news, despite mulitple phone calls and emails to the campaign office of Holli Thier, a politician running for State Assembly, no one has gotten back to me as to why she sent me spam this weekend. If you happen to live in her district, I recommend not voting for her. Anyone clueless enough to spam people doesn’t deserve to be in office. Update: Holli Thier just called me to explain where she got my email address from. She claims to have met me at an event a while back, but I have no recollection of having met her or giving her my email address (nor has at least one other person I know who received the same email from her).
