Edwards' Second Life Headquarters Vandalized
Posted on March 1, 2007 at 7:48 AM.

According to a post on presidential candidate John Edwards' official 
blog, the Democrat's Second Life campaign headquarters was trashed, 
apparently by Republican gamers:

Shortly before midnight (CST) on Monday, February 26, a group of 
republican Second Life users, some sporting "Bush '08? tags, 
vandalized the John Edwards Second Life HQ. They plastered the area 
with Marxist/Lenninist posters and slogans, a feces spewing obsenity, 
and a photoshopped picture of John in blackface, all the while 
harrassing visitors with right-wing nonsense and obsenity-laden abuse 
of Democrats in general and John in particular.

Last week it was the Democratic HQ in Concord, New Hampshire. Where next?
