Nevada Democrats have re-posted www.therealsharronangle.com.
This after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's campaign dropped the site briefly following a "cease and desist" letter from Sharron Angle's campaign.
Angle, Nevada's Republican Senate nominee, is challenging Reid, the top Democrat in the Senate, in this November's midterm elections.
After winning the June 8 Republican primary in Nevada, Angle took down her pre-primary website and re-launched a new glitzier and slimmer version. The new site offered a trimmed down version of where the candidate stands on the issues, no longer including her position on the nuclear waste dump facility at Yucca Mountain and her calls to dismantle the U.S. Department of Education.
Her original website was re-purposed by the Reid campaign as http://www.therealsharronangle.com. Angle's campaign says their "cease and desist" letter forced the Reid camp to take down a website that they say falsely represents itself as Angle's campaign website.
"Make no mistake, the Reid campaign was forced to take this site down because they were breaking several laws and trying to deceive the voters. You're going to see a lot of dirty tricks like that from Reid's campaign," said Angle campaign spokesman Jerry Stacy on Tuesday. "This is a clear case of a desperate man doing desperate things to win."
But a few hours later, the Reid campaign re-posted the website.
"Out of an abundance of caution, the Reid campaign decided to temporarily remove the website in question while we investigated their allegations. Well, the phony legal threats and the feigned indignation are over – and we're not going to let Sharron Angle retroactively censor Sharron Angle. The original website, including Angle in her own words on her dangerous and extreme agenda, has been re-launched," the Reid campaign said in a statement.
Wednesday morning, Angle responded, suggesting possible legal action.
"We are going to pursue it. I don't think that Harry is above the law," Angle said in an interview with Nevada radio host Heidi Harris on KDWN.
"Attorneys will determine if Reid's campaign is in compliance. A major concern was protecting the privacy of the citizens who may have been submitting confidential data to the Reid campaign under false pretenses," adds Stacy, in a statement to CNN.
Polls indicate that Reid, who's bidding for a fifth term in the Senate, faces a very difficult road to re-election, thanks in part to the anti-incumbent feeling in the nation and the tough economy, which is hitting Nevada especially hard. Nevada leads the nation with the highest statewide unemployment rate.
Thursday President Obama travels to Las Vegas to team up with Reid at a campaign rally.
