AD-38: Anti-Scott Wilk Website Makes Its Appearance

An anti-Scott Wilk website

An anonymous anti-Scott Wilk website has appeared.

A vicious and raunchy (probably not work safe) anti Scott Wilk website has gone live today, and it’s going to cause quite the stir.

The site, ScottWilk2012.com is a virtual clone of Scott Wilk’s real campaign website, Wilk2012.com. The layout, colors, design, and links are nearly identical.

The content, however, is not. The unknown author accuses Wilk of being a career politician, a “political opportunist” and a myriad of other charges. The author has also modified pictures of Wilk on the site. There is a lot of anti-Wilk content here to explore.

This site, devoid of any mention of Wilk’s Democratic opponent, Edward Headington, is just a tit for tat for the anonymous Really Patricia? website that was so devastating to his June Primary election Republican opponent, Patrica McKeon.

This looks to me like an amateur Republican type hit site, thrown together quickly, to lightly impugn, but harm Wilk later when he wins election in November and then decides to run for Rep. Buck McKeon’s seat, when Buck retires.

The content is quite humorous, especially if you know the back story and Wilk’s political history, but will have no affect on his campaign in this safe Republican California Assembly District. It is just too inside baseball and up on the web way too late in the campaign to have any measurable effect.

Except…. candidates will know that they must have a fast responding web presence to combat these type of efforts to slime them.
