Sen. Ted Cruz Websites Hacked with “Quite Opposite” Positions

by | Mar 24, 2015

As Ted Cruz, the U.S. Republican senator from Texas, formally announced he’s running for president in 2016, Adweek reported Monday that online viewers who searched for his campaign’s official website may have instead stumbled upon a pair of destinations that promoted ideas that are quite opposite of the aspiring White House candidate’s.

The Adweek story stated:

TedCruz.com visitors are seeing the following message in large, white copy against a static, black background: “Support President Obama. Immigration Reform Now!”

“And TedCruzForAmerica.com viewers are automatically redirected to HealthCare.gov, the website where citizens can learn more about buying insurance thanks to 2010’s Affordable Care Act.

“Cruz has opposed the Obama administration’s immigration reform proposals and has called for a repeal of the national healthcare initiative.

“So his adversaries have hijacked a bit of Web traffic that was driven by his announcement and probably enjoyed a private chuckle about the efforts. Cruz does indeed have an official site, TedCruz.org, which is seemingly operating the way his marketing team intended.”
