First, there was the news that Marion Berry’s son, Mitchell Berry, was behind a group called Arkansas For Common Sense, which recently launched an ad attack Bill Halter for his position on Social Security. (Marion Berry is a vocal supporter of Blanche Lincoln.)
Now we get word of this:
But the Halter campaign has hacked the group’s Web site and re-routed it to a “fact check” of the ad on Halter’s Web site, according to a Halter source. (emphasis added)
Update: MSNBC now reporting that Halter’s group bought the domain name, and no hacking was involved. That makes a little more sense.
Update Redux: It seems Mitchell Berry contacted the Arkansas Blog and kinda-sorta cleared up the whole thing, saying that he does not run Arkansans for Common sense, he has not even seen the ad, and that “all [he] did was organize the entity for them as their attorney.”
