Sharron Angle, a Republican running for U.S. Senate in Nevada this year, put a sick and very graphic burn on her opponent, Joe Heck, in a newsletter sent to voters this month. That’s because a URL that one might think leads to Mr. Heck’s campaign site instead redirects you to a page that, as far as I can tell, has very little to do with the three-term congressman’s pro-business conservative platform.

The mailer, which also appeared online, listed Heck’s website as www.joeheck.com. In fact, his website is www.drjoeheck.com. (The online version has since been corrected.) The former URL, for some reason, redirects to www.cartoonsex.com, a website that features—you guessed it—images of cartoons having sex with each other, and is obviously NSFW.

According to Whois information, www.joeheck.com was registered by a person named John Rashad, who has no apparent connection to either the Angle or the Heck campaigns. Speaking with Talking Points Memo, an Angle spokesman chalked the snafu up to a printing error, and stated that the “Angle campaign has, in no way, promoted the website.”

Heck’s campaign, however, is dubious. “The Sharron Angle campaign has been spreading misinformation to voters and unfortunately this is the latest, ridiculous, dirty trick,” a spokesperson told TPM.

[SNIP] She has endorsed addiction “cures” developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. She believes abortion should be outlawed outright, and and has said that women impregnated from rape by their fathers should turn that “lemon situation” into lemonade.
