(CNN) - Opponents of Meg Whitman's gubernatorial campaign have launched a Web site that relies on the public to help them "fully vet" the Republican candidate's credentials.
Wikimeg.com is marketed as a "bold new experiment in democracy."
The open source site encourages users to post information about the former eBay CEO in categories including "eBay Stories," "Meg History" and "Meg Sightings."
The site was launched Monday by Level The Playing Field 2010, a group run by California Democratic strategists who support Democratic candidate Jerry Brown.
Wikimeg.com discloses that "the structure of the project allows anyone with an Internet connection to alter its content," so its creators can't guarantee that what is posted is accurate. Users are asked to link to their sources or identify themselves if they are contributing first-hand information.
Sean Clegg, campaign manager for Level The Playing Field, said the site is monitored for editorial content, but the hope is that as the project moves forward, "the online community that's been created by it will begin to essentially govern itself."
Asked about the site, Whitman's campaigned deferred to its intern, Marcheta Marshall, who said in a statement: "Looks like these guys are pretty worried about Meg.
"Just like Wikipedia, I'm sure my professors won't even allow me to use it as a source for my term papers. So why does Jerry Brown's silly front group think it's good enough for voters? I know reporters won't be fooled into promoting made-up information on a gossip site."
Marshall's e-mail signature described her as "Director, responses to silly media stunts by underfunded Team Brown front groups."
