Sharron Angle’s new website presents a different picture of the Nevada Senate candidate than her old one. Opponent Senator Harry Reid published the original site to show how extreme her views really are. As a result Angle sent Reid a cease and desist letter. (h/t Taegan Goddard). Angle issued a press release accusing Reid of deceptively using her old site to raise money.
Today U.S. Senator Harry Reid’s campaign was forced to take down a website that falsely represented itself as Sharron Angle’s campaign website and attempted to deceive Angle supporters into giving their personal information to the Reid campaign. Reid’s campaign received a Cease and Desist Notice complaining of “nefarious actions,” including the abuses of proprietary materials from the Angle campaign website and for potentially violating the privacy of supporters who may have been submitting personal information to be used for U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle’s campaign.
Reid’s press release says it’s Angle who is the deceptive one, scrubbing her old site to soften her views.
Sharron Angle must really be scared that the extreme positions she has held for her lengthy political career are already coming back to haunt her. The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate is now taking legal action to have her former campaign website removed from the Web in an effort to hide her dangerous and extreme policies from Nevada voters who she knows will reject them.
That’s right. Sharron Angle is trying to silence, well, Sharron Angle.
