FBI: Lieberman campaign to blame for website crash – Stamford Advocate 4/9/08

EXCERPT: “A federal investigation has concluded that U.S. 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.”

EXCERPT: “Hanging chads. Ballot stuffing. Gerrymandering. Such dirty tricks enfeeble democracy. But the security of the votes cast in Geneva during Switzerland’s general election on October 21st is guaranteed. The authorities will use quantum cryptography—a way to transmit information that detects eavesdroppers and errors almost immediately—to ensure not only that votes are kept secret but also that they are all counted.”

GOP campaign treasurer embezzled up to $1 Million – Raw Story 3/14/08

EXCERPT: “The FBI began an investigation in February to determine how much former treasurer Christopher J. Ward, who previously did work for the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, embezzled from the NRCC. On Thursday the committee released more details on the investigation, indicating he may have moved as much as $1 million from campaigns he ran into his own account. “The evidence we have today indicated we have been deceived and betrayed for a number of years by a highly respected and trusted individual,” said Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), the NRCC chairman. Over the last five years, Ward served as treasurer for 83 Republican committees that raised more than $400 million over the last 10 years, the Washington Post reported. Rep. Peter T. King (R-NY) told the paper that Ward paid himself $6,000 from King’s political action committee last year. The congressman thought he had already closed down the committee. Thursday was the first time the NRCC acknowledged money was missing from its accounts.”
