Because Your Web Campaign Iz Dumba

OTTAWA — The Prime Minister's Office has asked Canada's secretive electronic counter-espionage police to investigate how someone might have gained access to a government Internet service to send out spoof emails in Stephen Harper's name.

Kady has some of the details on this, which I am not currently caffeinated enough to understand. The bottom line is: another piece of the Tory web-strategy (the Willyoubetricked re-mailer) has come offline.

I should say, I am all for these kinds of prank as long as they stay on the right side of the law. No point having the RCMP kick in your door over a mere election.

Meanwhile, the Tories are still up, but not by quite as much. How is that possible? We're slaying 'em in cyberspace?

BCL; Just wrote a post about what is happening at least one Facebook groups today. Might be a Conservative influence or it might just be individuals.

I'm not IT savvy enough to discover the source of this interference or possibly its just a complaint registered with Facebook by an irate individual but see my story "Who is interfering with Facebook" at
