'Republican firm' culprit behind flood of vitriol-laden 'anti-Obama' text messages

Washington, Nov 1 (ANI): A U.S. firm that had been sending American voters vitriol-laden text messages blasting President Barack Obama with anti-gay attacks and false claims, has finally been unmasked.

The Internet domains tied to the texting campaign were already masked during the text flurry.

But on Wednesday, GoDaddy.Com unmasked them, suspended them for "spam and abuse," and revealed that the owner is a Republican communications firm based in Virginia, named ccAdvertising.

In what appeared to be a coordinated campaign of cell phone text mail or text messages, one Virginia voter received one from the address sms@votegopett.com that made the inflammatory claim against Obama.

"Obama supports homosexuality and its radical social agenda. Say No to Obama on Nov 6!"," the message read.

According to Politico, both the firm and its CEO Gabriel Joseph III, have frequently been in the news in connection with questionable advertising practices on behalf of conservative politicians and causes.

The firm's website lists clients including Grover Norquist's powerhouse advocacy group Americans for Tax Reform, as well as Republican Senator Roy Blunt and Republican Kay Granger.

CcAdvertising has also worked with McDonald's and Burger King, according to the client list, the report said. (ANI)
