Description

This was a series of stories, with this one, 'CUSD Trustee Alpay Behind One of the Misleading Domain Names,' proving a sitting school board members was behind one of the sneaky website domain names designed to look like one political faction but redirecting internet traffic to the opposing faction. A number of groups and individuals were targeted by the trustee and one other political operative who had provided "campaign management services" to the the trustee. Most of these groups and individuals did not know the bogus URLs existed until contacted for comment by Patch.
