Another Strickland website

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

Not long after former Ventura County Assemblyman Tony Strickland announced his intent to run for controller, a mocking website appeared that featured Strickland's face on a cereal box (a la Kellogg's Tony the Tiger) and argued that Strickland was a liberal in conservative's clothing. The site was called TonytheStrickland.com.

The same pranksters have now turned their attention to his wife, current Assemblywoman Audra Strickland. The new website is called retireaudra.com.

It features newspaper reports, including some I've authored, that detail complaints that have been lodged against the Stricklands for their practice of using campaign funds to pay one another for consulting services and to make contributions to the other's political causes. The photo of Mrs. Strickland is not flattering.

The good news for the Strickland family: As of this moment, an attempt to call up TonytheStrickland.com produces this message: "Notice: This domain name expired on 06/09/06 and is pending renewal or deletion."

It is really distasteful when political detractors won't declare themselves publicly. The public really has a right to know who is responsible for such cheezy tactics.

Whats up! Nice piece of writing! I happen to be a ordinary website visitor (somewhat more like addict :P) of the website although I had a problem. I'm so absolutely not certain that whether its the right site to ask, but you have no spam comments. I get comments every single day. Possibly can you assist me? I praise you!

95 percent accurate
Over the last 25 presidential elections, Ventura County voters have backed the winner 24 times, or over 95 percent of the time. It is one of only a handful of counties in the nation that has been such a predictable bellwether.
