NRCC_phishing_siteThis certainly can’t help the National Republican Congressional Committee’s reputation. Let’s hope Google does the same to several other similar sites designed to fool Democrats into contributing to Republicans.

This is probably not what the National Republican Congressional Committee was expecting when they decided to make the contribution page on their websites targeting Democratic candidates mimic the Democrats’ websites. First, after public backlash, they had to start offering refunds to donors who’d been misled, and now, Google has put a “reported phishing website” warning on at least the anti-Alex Sink site.
