McKinney campaign website hacked; Chomsky voting McKinney


Received this in the mail, from Amee Chew (read her article supporting voting for McKinney). Check it out!  

Just wanted to share some sadness (and yeah, sick-and-tiredness) ...

The reason why the official McKinney/Clemente website http://votetruth08.com has been down the last few days is because it was hacked. A national campaign rep just told me.

None of the other candidates' websites were hacked down -- not other Third Party runners like Nader's.

This reminds me of another website, http://staaamp.org/, for Survivors Take Action Against Abuse by Military Personnel, that was bravely started by survivor Dorothy Mackey. It used to serve as a valuable resource containing survivors' testimonies. The site has been shut down for the last four years because it was hacked and replaced by a pornography portal.

Whose hands does technology get swiped from, and why?

Who targeted her? Was votetruth08.com hacked by people who really hate McKinney as a black woman? By other minor party supporters who are in competition with the Greens...? I know, I can't jump to conclusions, but still.

On another note, Noam Chomsky wrote me, he is voting for McKinney.
