Sharron Angle is running against Harry Reid (the Senate majority leader) this November. During the primary, she ran as a hard-line ultra-conservative, playing to the Tea Party. Once that ended, she took down her web site and replaced it with one suggesting that she’s a moderate.
Reid decided to put up a copy of her old web site, on the theory that such data should be preserved and publicly available.
Now Angle is suggesting that she wants to sue Reid for copyright violation.
Yes, definitely. Suing someone to make them stop repeating what you said in the middle of a highly-publicized election is an excellent strategy for burying the story. Please, go ahead and do this. I will make popcorn.
