As an unapologetic Liberal blogger, I get email from some pretty strange places. Recently I got some email from something called FaxDC.com, full of birther/teabagger nonsense. The web site looks awful, I'm guessing to make it seem home brew. It offers the ability to fax complaints to every member of Congress/Senate:
Get this, the liberal hordes think they can just take over our government for their own enrichment and outlandish purposes. We The People say: NO MORE!
Read this, It's going to be a cold day in HELL before We The People submit to the National Socialist agenda. It is time to put them on notice!
I did a Whois search on Faxdc.com, and came up with this:
Rua Dr. Brito Camara, n 20, 1 Funchal, Madeira 9000-039 PT Phone: 1-902-7495331
Translated, that's someone at 20, Dr. Brito Camera Road, Madeira, Portugal. I did some more digging with Teh Google™, and found that it's actually Domain Discreet, who registers hundreds of random web sites at that address. Weird. Why would a patriotic American grassroots campaign use a proxy anonymous domain host?
But the 902 area code turns out to be Canada, specifically Nova Scotia/PEI. So who the actual hell is Faxdc.com?
A deeper look at the headers of the actual email shows that it comes from @lists.timbueler.com. While that search results in a 404 error, timbueler.com leads to:
And who are these folks? Quotes from their site:
If you have ever worked on a campaign before, you know that winning is certainly better than losing. And in today's highly competitive electoral matches it is those candidates who have prepared themselves and their teams with experienced professional help that make it to the finish line a winner.
This is pretty disgusting:
