Activist Buys Up Domain Names of Politicians who voted for Indiana’s Anti-Gay Law
#1
PinkNews.com reported that an activist Konrad Juengling bought up domains related to politicians who voted for the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in Indiana, the law caught a lot of heat during the NCAA Tournament as the final four was held in Indianapolis. Lawmakers in Indiana scrambled to amend the bill which many saw as a right to discriminate against gay people.

Mr. Juengling has said he purchased these domains to help educate these politicians and that if they pass a non-discrimination bill, he will give them control of the domain names.

From the article:


MONDAY,27 April 2015 THE DOMAINS

According to the news from Domain Forum of China on April 27th,a tech-savvy rights activist has bought up domains related to politicians in Indiana who voted through the state’s anti-gay law.

Indiana was strongly criticised last month for passing the controversial ‘Religious Freedom Restoration Act’, which gives businesses the right to discriminate against gay people on the grounds of religion.

In retaliation, this week activist Konrad Juengling bought out the domains for a number of the Republican politicians responsible – such as DaleDevon.com – and redirected them to a report on the struggles of young LGBT people from the Human Rights Campaign.

In an open letter to the politicians – Republicans Martin Carbaugh, Dale Devon, Douglas Gutwein, Kathy Kreag Richardson, Don Lehe, and Donna Schaibley – Mr Juengling offered to give them control of the web domains if they pass a non-discrimination law.

He wrote: “I recently purchased the domains for each of your names.
