Republicans resort to creating fake websites for Democratic opponents

Post by >THE Ben Reilly< on Sat Feb 08, 2014 7:18 am

(CNN) – A warning this election season: If you are searching the Web for information on Democratic congressional candidates, read the fine print.

At least 15 websites that appear to be official campaign sites for Democratic candidates, are actually the handiwork of the National Republican Congressional Committee.

In an effort to improve their online efforts this election season, the NRCC’s digital team came up with what the group believes is a great idea: get out the Republican message through fake Democrat sites.

“The idea is people who are looking for information on the candidate, one of the places we all go now is online and so this is a way for folks to find out more about the candidates and information they may not find on the candidate’s own site,” said Daniel Scarpinato, the NRCC's press secretary.

Speaking of fake websites, I recently came across a website about and dedicated to, forum posters. I did a quick search and found a thread called:

“What to do if you make a thread and no one replies?”

I clicked on it.
No one had replied.

Shocked

Need to make sure you keep your tone civil here, edds, unless you want me to take you to the basement.
