As Rachel Maddow noted, a Democratic PAC, American Bridge 21st Century, took credit for having a bit of fun after they bought the newtgingrich.com domain name and they are currently offering to sell the name back to him for $1 million, but as they wrote on their site "Heck in the spirit of Christmas we might even let it for for $10,000," a likely dig at Gingrich's fellow Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.
Here's more from The Hill -- Dem PAC hits Gingrich with website prank:
Internet users surfing to www.newtgingrich.com on Wednesday found their Web browsers redirected to one of a number of sites mocking the former House speaker.
On the list of sites to which the website sent users was a Washington Post story about Newt Gingrich's campaign imploding and the website for Tiffany's & Co., the jewelry outfit where Gingrich has been much derided for having a six-figure credit line.
The website for Freddie Mac, the government-backed mortgage lender for which Gingrich's opponents claim he lobbied, is also on the list. So is the now-famous climate change ad that Gingrich filmed with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a move he has described a "one of the dumbest things I've done."
Gingrich's campaign does not own the website's domain name, and his official website is at www.newt.org.
