A fair number of people have sought to make money by snagging Internet domain names that they can sell at a profit later. That practice has spilled over into the political arena, with someone seeking $50,000 each for the domain names Romney-Perry2012.com and Perry-Romney2012.com, The Hill reports.


Niels Jeffreys, who told the news service that he lives in Thailand, bought the websites this month and has advertised them for the $50,000 price on GoDaddy.com. No one has bid on the names yet.


Jeffreys has tried his hand at selling domain names before, but the results weren’t pretty. “I have lost a bundle, actually, and they're the worst investment I've ever gotten into,” he told Politico, admitting that his effort is “essentially gambling.” But he holds out hope on Romney and Perry, because he thinks either one can mount a stiff challenge to President Barack Obama.
