iVerify The Recall Gets Spoofed ~ Finally

"iVerify the Recall" the website created by housebound teabillies to house all the names and addresses of everyone who signed a recall petition got spoofed.

At first they thought they were hacked - because the website owners failed to buy the ".org" option of their domain name. Viewers were who thought they were at "iverifytherecall.com" were confused when they landed on "iverifytherecall.org" instead.

It looked like the website, but the message was quite different.

Real website:
"By visiting this website and viewing, accessing or otherwise using any of the services or information contained therein, you agree to be bound by the following Terms and Conditions of Service. If you do not agree to these Terms, you are not authorized to use these websites. If you do not want to be bound by these Terms, your only option is not to visit, view or otherwise use this website."

Spoof website:
"By visiting this website, IVerifyTheRecall.org, and viewing, accessing or otherwise using any of the services or information contained therein, you agree to be bound by the following Terms and Conditions of Service. By visiting this website, you acknowledge that you most likely are a hypocritical lunatic who listens to Charlie Sykes. If you do not agree to these Terms, you are not authorized to use these websites."

Awesome. The Grandson's of Liberty were forced to issue a press release lamenting the weak attempt at humor and espousing their patriotic dedication to "transparency." Recall petitions are public documents dontcha know - unlike concealed carry licenses which should be kept private.

It's in the public interest to know if you neighbor or coworker signed the recall - but it is not in the public interest to know if they are carrying a loaded handgun.

Check out the website - it's full of funny details and surprising search results. It's about time someone started poking some fun at these hypocrites.
