Dirty Campaigning Online
from the whatever-it-takes-to-win dept
Dan Dow is running for California Assembly against John Dutra. Dan Dow set up a campaign website at DanDow.com, and then Dow noticed that John Dutra hadn’t registered JohnDutra.com (or .net and .org) and decided to register them for himself as well. Dutra is not too pleased, and vows that if he is elected, he’s going to make sure that the penalties for cybersquatting are much stiffer. That’s what I like to see in a political candidate: policy positions made based on vengeance rather than sound policy.
