Attack on Lieberman Campaign Website

The following (sporadically) appears on


STATEMENT FROM SEAN SMITH: "For the past 24 hours the Friends for Joe Lieberman's website and email has been totally disrupted and disabled, we believe that this is the result of a coordinated attack by our political opponents. The campaign has notified the US Attorney and the Connecticut Chief State's Attorney and the campaign will be filing a formal complaint reflecting our concerns. The campaign has also notified the State Attorney General Dick Blumenthal for his review."

"We call on Ned Lamont to make an unqualified statement denouncing this kind of dirty campaign trick and to demand whoever is responsible to cease and desist immediately. Any attempt to suppress voter participation and undermine the voting process on Election Day is deplorable and has no place in our democracy."

The Response from the Lamont campaign follows:

Apparently the Lieberman campaign is pushing a story that we have coordinated an attack against their website. Not a chance. Here's the unqualified statement Sean Smith has called for.

If Senator Lieberman's website was indeed hacked, we had absolutely no part in it, denounce the action, and urge whoever is responsible cease and desist immediately. It is our sincerest wish that everyone planning to vote for Ned Lamont or Joe Lieberman does so today.

Tim Tagaris
Internet Communications Director
Ned Lamont for U.S. Senate

Re: Attack on Lieberman Campaign Website

It was hilarious. I was watching Chris Mathews just now and Liz Dupont-Diehl was great. She replied TO THE POINT and even had Chris a little taken aback by her candor. She did not play word games. Just said that the Lamont campaign had their own priorities today but of course they condemn if there was an attack. And whenever Chris would ask for more details, she pretty much said  and I paraphrase loosely"There is really nothing else much to say other than the fact that we have always condemned such tactics and will do so in the future."

Lamont should link to Joe's google cache in a statement on his website, or take his website down until Joe's can get back up.

I voted for other

I think that Joe just never realized that this campaign was going national and didn't pay for enough bandwith.  i.e. his tubes are too small.
