Skip to comments.National Republican Congressional Campaign using fake Democrat websites to lure voters
Posted on 02/06/2014 7:07:44 PM PST by Beave Meister
(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 NRCCs 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 candidates own site, said Daniel Scarpinato, the NRCC's press secretary.
The NRCC bought up hundreds of URLs on potential weak Democratic candidates and created sites that mimic the real ones.
It may sound deceiving, but Scarpinato insists the well-thought out, well-planned program is pure genius.

CNN makes it sound dishonest.
Yet Dems infiltrate Tea Party rallies and bring out their bogus signs and its the first thing the media reports on..never the fact that the people with those signs are paid plants
Well, the Democrats have been using fake voters for decades. Even dead ones.
I have no problem with this. It's about time the Pubbies started fighting fire with fire.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
This is silly, but the Democrats do it every election cycle. The MSM thinks they’re brilliant.
*cough*Americans for a Conservative Direction*cough*
It sounds like the ‘RAT girls over at CNN are starting to panic.
And telling the truth about Democrats is always termed “mud slinging” or “negative” by the media.
Time to fight fire WITH fire.
God KNOWS, we don’t have ANY representation in gubmint.
Let’s play by the dem’s rules, and watch ‘em cry.
Sort of like the fake Tea Party Candidates the Dems tried last election.
Gasp! Those wascally Wepublicans!
It’s about time we started fighting fire with fire...
How friggin stupid is this idea!
Would they find it so important to issue this “warning” if it was democraps doing it to Republicans?
They have never done so in the past...
Agreed. Time to revisit Ray Stevens “Grandpa Voted Democrat”
5 Arizona Democrats have cosponsored Pelosi’s amnesty bill and the GOP consultants tell the GOP candidates not to discuss immigration.
2 or 3 of them won because of Libertarian spoilers.
Pelosi has 3 Republicans and 187 House Democrats to open the borders officially. There are a bunch of cosponsors from Guam and PR in that list that makes the 196 seem close to 218 dischage petition.
Rep. Barber, Ron [D-AZ-2]* 10/02/2013
Rep. Kirkpatrick, Ann [D-AZ-1]* 10/02/2013
Rep. Pastor, Ed [D-AZ-7]* 10/02/2013
Rep. Sinema, Kyrsten [D-AZ-9]* 10/02/2013
Rep. Grijalva, Raul M. [D-AZ-3] 01/15/2014
If the Democrats are dishonest, we too should be dishonest.
So, we should fight fire with fire, fight dishonesty with dishonesty, and fight stupidity with stupidity.
Yep. Makes a lot of sense to me.
You people are whacked. The next time we lose an election, we’ll have no right to complain.
We lost the LAST election because of democrat FRAUD, not because conservatives didn’t want to vote for Romney—the commies bussed in Somalians to vote in Michigan (or some where up north) and Soros (who should be in prison) bought Secretaries of State—it doesn’t matter who VOTES, but who COUNTS the vote, and NOW the commies want electronic voting!!!! RIPE for fraud.
I went to the DMV today and had to give them everything BUT my first-born male child and a blood sample to RENEW a damned driver’s license! And YET, commies complain about photo IDs to VOTE!!! Somehow, it’s “racist”.
I support using commie techniques to SAVE this country from commies.
Enjoy your future in a third world, moslem controlled country, stolen by a foreign usurper who uses our own judicial system against us because he is ALLOWED by those he threatens to circumvent it by installing leftist judges who do his bidding.
I, for one, will use their tactics against THEM because we have NO help via the DOJ or “representation” in DC-—and then, hopefully, we can return to justice for ALL.
What do YOU suggest?
In case you haven’t noticed, when the Left pulls this crap, they get away with it. When we do it, we get busted - thanks to the hypocrisy of the MSM.
Good for them. It’s about time they adopted some of the same tactics as their opponents. Now . . to fund a diversion candidate who will bleed off some of the support for the Dem candidate.
I was going to say the same thing. I just wish the Pubbies would get even more down and dirty with the rat bastards. I have such a deep seated hatred for these ass hats, that I think we can't get dirty enough.
We've been losing elections all along, by being Howdy-Doody, Richie Cunningham good guys. Enjoy your moral high ground...we're going to get busy saving this Republic.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
But that's a big assumption. More likely is that most are couch potatoes.
When a plant is discovered they should be doused with paint.
My actual preference is to shoot them, but that causes more shooting wars, and well, Obama would like that.
Let them explain the paint to the media.
Just a thought.
Maybe you should visit the site provided as an example before you start calling other people names. If thats what "standup" republicans call "dishonest" then its no wonder why we lose.
Saul Alinsky approves of your "integrity."
Finally a republican plays by the rules the democrats have set.
They should post pics with Dems holding guns,too.
Like Di-Fi pointing one at people with her finger on the trigger or Shmuch Schumer shooting with a maniacal smile on his face.
That would have the CNN folks wetting their panties.
