John Edwards 'Second Life' HQ trashed, gets new neighbor

GamePolitics is today reporting that Democratic Presidential hopeful John Edwards had his Second Life campaign headquarters trashed overnight by some Republican Second Lifers. From the John Edwards blog:

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.
A feces spewing obsenity? Hmm...I'm wondering if the Edwards people just didn't recognize Dick Cheney's Second Life avatar.

I entered Second Life this morning to check the damage, and all has been cleaned up. However, I'm thinking that John John's neighboring property may be owned by slightly classier Republican operatives, for the property is identical to that of John Edwards, however it's a mock campaign headquarters for John Edward, the guy who talks to dead people.

Ah Second Life politics. Where have you been all my life?
