A pro-Democratic super PAC has acquired the website NewtGingrich.com and is using it to embarrass the presidential candidate. Those who click on the address end up at sites with negative stories about the former Speaker of the House, The Washington Post’s blog The Fix reported.

The group that bought the domain name is the super PAC American Bridge. The group’s website now has an item up saying the domain name is for sale. “We thought of giving it away, but we wouldn’t want to be accused of being socialists,” the item says. “So, make your best offer.”

The rest of the post has suggested asking prices of $1 million, $500,000 and $10,000. Each number is a hyperlink to a negative story about Gingrich or Mitt Romney.

The Post also noted that, for a few months, the link RickPerry.com redirected visitors to the website of Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas.
