U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman’s web site is down on primary day. Lieberman faces a stiff challenge from businessman Ned Lamont whose campaign has been followed closely by bloggers. The site message when you try to access www.joe2006.com says, “Please check back soon. It will be available shortly. Thank you.”
According to Connecticut Local Politics Lieberman’s campaign manager Sean Smith has released the following statement:“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.“Read the latest on this issue from the New Haven Independent with the Lamont campaign in Meriden.
