Sharron Angle 'Issues' Page No Longer Available

More

Woe to the national press corps, and to anyone looking for an up-to-date summation of Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle's views. This link is dead: http://sharronangle.com/issues


Angle revamped her campaign website after winning her primary Tuesday night. Sharronangle.com is now a one-page affair, with no active hyperlinks except to a "donate" page where Angle takes in contributions. Visitors can "like" the page on Facebook and tweet it via buttons, but no other sections of the site are available. During the day on Tuesday, the site had multiple sections and moving parts, including a photo slideshow. Other former sections are now dead links as well.

Angle's views, and the contents of this former web page, are already well documented. That she wants to do away with the Department of Education is common knowledge, as is her support for phasing out Social Security in favor of a privatized retirement system and for repealing offshore drilling regulations. All featured on the former "issues" page of her website, these have all been noted by the press.

(Her support for an inmate rehabilitation program devised by L. Ron Hubbard and her suggestion that alcohol should be illegal, also favorites of the media, were not featured on the website.) 

Conveniently, Google maintains a cached version of Angle's issues page, which is viewable here.
