Lieberman camp now admits no evidence in accusing Lamont
After 24 hours of making baseless accusations to the contrary, the Lieberman campaign has now admitted that they have no evidence whatsoever to suggest that the campaign of Ned Lamont had anything to do with the crash of their web site, joe2006.com
Sean Smith and Marion Seinfels, two talking heads for the Lieberman campaign, have spent the last day accusing Ned Lamont's team of doing everything from hacking their web site to attempting to bring down the East Coast power grid -- but it looks like they were just grasping at straws and making stuff up.
Asked by Greg Sargent at TPM Cafe if the Lieberman camp had any idea who might be behind the alleged attacks on their web site, spokesman Dan Gerstein said simply ""We don't."
Sargent asked Gerstein directly if they had any proof at all that Lamont or his backers were behind the attacks on the Lieberman site.
"HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the thing. We are not putting the blame on the Lamont campaign," said Gerstein. "We think it's very important for them to put out a statement throughout the Net roots that they not only don't support these tactics, but want them to stop."
Many bloggers are suggesting that Lieberman only being willing to dip into his massive campaign budget for $15 a month worth of web hosting, may have something to do with the lousy service.
I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t care so much about that.
I just want to know if Joe Lieberman is going to apologize to Ned Lamont for all the false accusations before or after the polls close tonight.
