Dirty Harry's Gone Phishing

The Senate race in Nevada between Harry Reid and Sharron Angle just got nastier.  It seems that Reid’s campaign took the code from Sharron Angle’s old website and reposted it in an effort to collect information, or “spoofing”.  The Reid campaign activated the email and user information pages, even going so far as to accept campaign contributions and volutneer to work on “Sharron Angle’s” campaign.

This tactic is extremely unethical.  I think that Angle’s campaign has a great opportunity to exploit the lack of ethics from someone who is suppose to be representing the citizens of Nevada with the utmost ethics.  Harry Reid has enough campaign and Senate experience to know that such a tactic, when collecting information and money under false pretense, is fraud.
