Kucinich Website Crippled Under Suspicious Circumstances Following Introduction of Impeachment ArticlesSalem-News.com
Campaign officials say they are continuing to work on restoring the website and implementing additional security measures.
(CLEVELAND, Ohio) - Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich's re-election website was shut down this morning by a series of suspicious and fast-moving events several hours after Kucinich introduced 35 Articles of Impeachment against President George W. Bush.
Andy Juniewicz with the Kucinich Campaign says that until the site is up and running again, the full list and text of the Articles are available at democrats.com/files/amomentoftruth.pdf and chun.afterdowningstreet.org/amomentoftruth.pdf
Juniewicz says Kucinich website managers and staff were beginning to post detailed information about the Articles and related news stories on the website early this morning when they noticed irregularities - possibly external tampering - with various private and protected codes used to format information and to create links to photos, videos, and external websites. Within less than two hours, the entire site was non-functional.
The problems struck at a time when the website was receiving an estimated 100,000-plus hits per hour from visitors seeking additional information about the Articles of Impeachment. That volume should have been manageable, campaign officials said.
The campaign issued a statement this morning saying, "The response to Congressman Kucinich's bold and meticulously documented presentation of the case against the President has been overwhelmingly positive and powerful. Emails, phone calls, and text messages have been pouring in all day from supporters."
Campaign officials are continuing to work on restoring the website and implementing additional security measures.
