Senator Harry Reid's Campaign Forced to Take Down Deceptive Website Reid Campaign blamed for trying to capture data belonging to Angle Supporters

(christiansunite.com) - Reno, NV - 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.

According to a letter from the Angle campaign's lawyer, "... these activities violate a number of federal statutes regarding the internet and your client has clearly misappropriated my client's copyrighted materials. In addition it appears that the only interactive function on the fake site is the capturing of names of persons seeking to add their names and email addresses as supporters of Sharron Angle."

Angle spokesman Jerry Stacy said that Reid's campaign responded immediately by removing the site. "Make no mistake, the Reid campaign was forced to take this site down because they were breaking several laws and trying to deceive the voters," Stacy said. "You're going to see a lot of dirty tricks like that from Reid's campaign."

Stacy also added that he is not surprised by the continual shady tactics coming from the Reid campaign. "This is a clear case of a desperate man doing desperate things to win. We knew that Harry Reid was trailing in the polls and that he would do anything to win -- but for Harry Reid's campaign to resort to actually breaking laws would be amazing even for him. Harry Reid may feel like he is above the law when he's off in Washington, but back here in Nevada we expect better from our leaders. This is just one more reason Harry Reid has got to go."
