With the December 11 deadline to file for a place on the ballot in Texas statewide and local elections rapidly approaching, the emergence of two political attack websites sends a signal to candidates and the campaign consultants they employ to be on their toes.
On or around November 20th, 2017 the County Citizen blog published the story of an anonymous political attack website directed at Gregory Parker, former Comal County Commissioner and candidate for Montgomery County Commissioner Precinct #2.
“A skimpy website built and published at www.gregoryparker.net bearing the introductory heading “A TALE OF TWO PARKERS” and “It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.” has emerged as an early punctuation mark in the upcoming commissioners court election races.
Gregory Parker http://parker2018.com/ is currently seeking election as Montgomery County Commissioner Precinct #2 and is a former Comal County Commissioner, author and according to the IMDB database a writer and actor. While gregoryparker.net is anonymous icann records reveal a very recent Nov 7, 2017 registration date via domain and hosting giant Godaddy of Scottsdale AZ.”
Little Jolly Politics and RagingElephantsRadio.com recently learned of another anonymous attack website whose target this time is current Texas Railroad Commissioner Christi Craddick. Taking a swipe at issues on Craddick’s campaign website, “Crooked Christi – End the Corruption” hosts videos culled from Texas Railroad Commission meetings and documents alleging the current Texas Railroad Commissioner “gives oil and gas operators a PASS in exchange for campaign cash”.
The site also hosts documents claiming Craddick’s personal financial statements detail oil and gas companies from which she receives royalties and also votes (or gives a “pass”) on their items appearing on Texas Railroad Commission agendas.
While CrookedChristi.net is anonymous, ICANN records reveal the website was created on October 30, 2017 with the registrant name Perfect Privacy LLC of Jacksonville, Florida.
Craddick is currently seeking reelection to the Texas Railroad Commission.
