Tory Candidate Websites Hijacked!

After the last election, losing Conservative candidates often took down their now useless websites and in some cases let the domain names expire. Now, enterprising computer programmer Derek Seaborne has purchased a number of these domain names and linked them to Regressive Conservative, the website of "Canada's newest faith-based political party". At the website you can find Derek's manifesto:

The Conservative Party is a religious one, its views link sin almost exclusively to sex. If they gain enough seats, the Conservative will break their promise to the Canadian people and bring gay marriage to another vote. Make no mistake: After this passes issues like abortion, contraception, sex education, even divorce will be next.

The domain names snagged include those which previously pointed to the websites of Lou Grimshaw, Keith Fountain, John Mazzilli, Anthony Reale "mad" Rondo Thomas.

And I don't think that's a complete list. As FreeD's ConnieF writes:

... shows that Derek Seabrooke's email address is associated with 215 domains. I wonder how many of them are domains that belonged to CPC candidates -- domains that will not only be unavailable to them if they run again, but that will be actively working against them by pointing interested voters to an anti-CPC site during the next election.

Good work, Derek. Your country is proud of you.

We really should reach out and help him pay for all those domain names and the eventual court cases.

Didn't Charles McVety do the same thing?

Anyway, the only name I recognised among those was Pastor Rondo "Bongo" Thomas.
