Dirty tricks

Dirty tricks abound in the debate over the war in Iraq. The latest victim has been Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL), whose office e-mail system was hacked. According to the AP, hackers hijacked the Brown-Waite's e-mail and sent a message to her address book disparaging President Bush. Brown-Waite has been a firm supporter of the president’s policies.

This isn't the first time Brown-Waite has been a target of nefarious activity. Brown-Waite proposed legislation that would allow families opposed to France’s stance against America to disinter relatives buried in French military cemeteries for re-interment in the US. In response, a German radio station encouraged listeners to send Brown-Waite rotting chicken bones with the message “The boys are coming home.”
