New York City Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner was in the news again for apparently sending dirty messages and possibly photos months after he had resigned from Congress for doing something similar.
According to the NY Post article referenced above: “The other shoe dropped yesterday for Anthony Weiner, who was forced to admit he engaged in a months-long sexting affair with a woman — a year after he resigned from Congress in disgrace — using the bizarre online alias Carlos Danger.”
Shortly after news broke yesterday, the matching CarlosDanger.com domain name was privately registered at Go Daddy. In addition, CarlosDanger.org, CarlosDanger.info, and CarlosDanger.us were also registered without privacy. I would imagine similar domain names were also registered to capitalize on this news cycle.
The CarlosDanger.com domain name forwards to a YouTube channel called The B.S. of A. with Brian Sack. The page offers a humorous political video. Because the domain name was privately registered, there’s no way of telling whether the group behind the You Tube channel registered it or if someone random registered it and forwarded it on their own.
It’s a pretty humorous story and a sad state of affairs.
