In 2010, when then U.S. Rep. Harry Teague was running for re-election against Steve Pearce, I checked his campaign website, looking for a position statement on a certain issue.
I couldn’t get past the front page. To get into the site, the reader had to sign in and provide an e-mail address.
What? A candidate for public office won’t let an undecided voter look at his position statements?
I checked again recently. The “Harry for Congress 2010” website is still online, and you can now click a “skip” button and go to the site without signing in.
The site doesn’t appear to have been updated since the 2010 election. It looks like a 2010 campaign office frozen in time – but now you can see it.
A suggestion to any 2012 New Mexico candidate for the U.S. House or Senate whose site won’t let readers get past the “sign up” page: bag it.
I won’t mention your names just yet. One site with this gimmick has a “skip this page” button in very small print, but when I skipped it, I found nothing but opportunities to like him on Facebook, tweet him on Twitter and so on.
Not a word about what the candidate stands for.
