Tim Griffin making plans? UPDATE

YON CASSIUS: Tim Griffin appears hungry for higher office, judging by domain registrations.
  • YON CASSIUS: Tim Griffin appears hungry for higher office, judging by domain registrations.
In case you don't read the open lines:

Blog reader Radical Centrist, who marks the sparrow's fall on Internet matters, found this cluster of registered Internet domain names last night related to U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin (squatters, of course, may have nailed these down in hopes of exacting a price from him, too. They are under a proxy registration):


He notes that Griffin failed to register timgriffinforpresident.com

UPDATE: K. Ryan James, who's worked for Griffin in a variety of capacities, sent me a message on Twitter that says:

Griffin campaign did not purchase non-congressional domains. Focused on re-elect & serving people in AR2.

I have asked him if he could say categorically that no one connected with Griffin, campaign or otherwise, controlled those domains.

UPDATE II: James called me to add that he and the congressman have "no knowledge" of who purchased the domains.

That is short of a categorical dismissal of a friendly connection to those registrations, but it will have to do for now. In two years, things will become clearer.

This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.
