NJ Democrat Busted For Hacking Recall Website

Posted by on May 24, 2012 at 5:49 pm

These pathetic Democrats  should take a lesson from Scott Walker on how to handle a recall. Instead, we get this schmuck who decides to hack into a website promoting a recall against him, then he threatens the proprietor. Chump change for the Hudson County Democratic Party mob, but still a federal rap.

A New Jersey mayor and his son were arrested Thursday by the FBI for allegedly hacking into an email account and website tied to a recall effort — and then intimidating those associated with the site.

Felix Roque, 55, the Democratic mayor of West New York, N.J., and his son Joseph, 22, allegedly accessed and cancelled the domain registration for Recallroque.com, a website that was critical of the mayor and associated with a movement to recall him in early February.

Joseph Roque learned how to hack email accounts and GoDaddy.com, a domain registration company, by searching the Internet, according to a criminal complaint unsealed after the arrests.After RecallRoque.com was taken down, the criminal complaint says, Roque placed a telephone call to the proprietor of the website — “Victim 1,” a government official in Hudson County, N.J. — to say that the page had been taken down by “high government officials and that everyone would pay for getting involved against Mayor Roque.”

He then claimed he had friends at the CIA.  So how does New Jersey’s largest paper handle that fact?
Roque, who is a strong supporter of Republican Gov. Chris Christie and repeatedly suggested that he had powerful friends, but never mentioned the governor’s name.
So why does the Star Ledger find it necessary to mention his name?

    Hudson County’s finest. Nothing new here. These guys could even teach Obama and his Chicago Mob a few lessons. Probably only a few.

    They had a choice. Run “hackers tied to Chris Christie” or “Yet ANOTHER democrat politician did something so henious and stupid that they managed to get arrested. In NEW JERSEY NO LESS!” Which do you think they want to run?
