Registered During Gloria Allred Conference
Neustar Domain Names Registered Before Gloria Allred Press Conference Ended


Many organizations like to take advantage of news events for political reasons. Oftentimes, especially with local campaigns, these organizations will register associated domain names.

I saw that noted attorney Gloria Allred held a press conference at the Friar’s Club this afternoon with a woman who alleged that Presidential candidate Herman Cain was inappropriate with her. The live press conference was broadcast live on many tv stations and websites.

The accuser’s name is Sharon Bialek, and I was interested in seeing if any organization had registered her domain name for possible political gain. It’s likely that people would Google her name during the next few news cycles (at least), and if someone had a website already operating on the domain name, it could have been used for political reasons. A registration a few days prior to the press conference would have been very interesting to note.

As the Whois information indicates, it appears to have been registered to someone in Maryland on November 7 (today), very likely during the press conference. At the present time, the domain name resolves to a Godaddy landing page, so I don’t know if there’s any political intent or of the buyer simply wanted to buy it for speculative purposes.

    Mr. Cain’s ship has sunk. There’s no way he can survive this. His days of dreaming of a Presidential run are over.
