The DNC is launching a new website designed to capture similar moments."]Washington (CNN) – A new website run by the Democratic National Committee designed to aggregate video footage of Republican candidates on the campaign trail is scheduled to make its debut Tuesday.
A part of the DNC's "Accountability Project," the site will be "devoted to citizens uploading content from political events including audio and video – a central resource to hold Republicans accountable," DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse in a statement.
Users will be encouraged to upload videos of Republican candidates – for both the 2010 midterm races and the 2012 presidential election – recorded on the campaign trail, as well as campaign literature and mailings.
The site will "increase the number of people out there who with nothing more than a smart phone at hand can hold Republicans accountable for what they say on the campaign trail," Woodhouse said.
The launch will be announced Tuesday in an e-mail to supporters from DNC Research Directory Shauna Daly, who will site the example of former Republican Sen. George Allen's use of a slur caught on tape at a 2006 campaign event as the kind of video being sought.
That incident, and the fallout that followed, contributed to the election of Democratic Sen. Jim Webb.
