Being a web host myself I’m not buying this story that Jieberman’s site was hacked story. His site has been down far too long for that excuse. Unless he is totally incompetent all you have to do is restore from backups and put it back online. If someone hacked any site on my servers it would take me less that 10 minutes to restore.

The other version, that he didn’t pay his bill is more likely. Many vendors get stiffed by politicians during elections. If the vendor wasn’t paid and thought he was going to get screwed then he might pull the site. There are blogs out there that captured the original message that his site was pulled for not paying his bill.

Lieberman’s accusation that he seems to know that Lamont did it is just an election day ploy. Even if he were hacked, how whould he know who did it?

The WHOIS data on the joe2006.com site is interesting.

Notice the transfer lock as disabled. That’s just a little sloppy for a political candidate.
