Lieberman Falsely Accused Lamont Campaign of Hacking His Website

Posted by libhom Wednesday, April 09, 2008

From Greenwich Time 4/9/08:

A federal investigation has concluded that Sen. Joseph Lieberman's 2006 re-election campaign was to blame for the crash of its Web site the day before Connecticut's heated Aug. 8 Democratic primary.

The FBI office in New Haven found no evidence supporting the Lieberman campaign's allegations that supporters of primary challenger Ned Lamont of Greenwich were to blame for the Web site crash.

Lieberman, who was fighting for his political life against the anti-Iraq war candidate Lamont, implied that joe2006.com was hacked by Lamont supporters.

"The server that hosted the joe2006.com Web site failed because it was overutilized and misconfigured. There was no evidence of (an) attack," according to the e-mail.

At the time, Lieberman accused supporters of his opponent, Ned Lamont, of being responsible:
Visitors who tried to access Lieberman's site at the time received a message calling on Lamont to "make an unqualified statement denouncing this kind of dirty campaign trick and to demand whoever is responsible to cease and desist immediately."

The incident was covered in the media because the Lieberman-Lamont race captured national and international attention.

Blumenthal denied The Advocate's FOI request on the grounds it was a federal matter, and it took more than a year for the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice to respond.

The Lieberman campaign alleged it was the target of a "denial of service attack," which can involve bombarding a Web site with external communications to slow it or render it useless.

Lieberman and his minions falsely accused Lamont of something their own mismanagement caused. Of course, most readers of this blog know that Lieberman has been lying about Iraq for years, pandering to war profiteers rather than showing loyalty to our country and the people who are stuck in Iraq in an illegal and unAmerican war.

Lieberman will do anything to keep power. No one should ever trust anything that man says.

  2. Joementum is such a moron.

    Oh well. The good people in Connecticut had a chance to send him packing but instead, they rewarded him with 6 more years in office.

  4. Well, that may be sorted, but as christopher writes, CT's stuck with him for some more years. I heard Lieberman "questioning" Petraeus in the Senate hearings a few days ago; Joe L.'s fawning behaviour just made me vomit!

  6. I think that any democrat who supported Lie-berman and voted for him should be doing penance somehow.

    I hope to godlessness that there are no remaining Dems left who don't realize this AIPAC crony is a full fledged Republican.
