Shopcock = Unions Lie
Yesterday, Kelly Davis reported on how City Councilmember Carl DeMaio paid his boyfriend’s company, Hale Media, more than $18,000 in his effort to get his managed-competition initiative on the ballot. (The effort has, so far, failed.)
It might’ve seemed to be a bit of a sideshow at the time, but Davis reported that Hale Media also owns the domains ShopCock.com and SlappedbyJesus.com. The former forwarded to the Hale Media site, while latter was simply a parked page.
That changed today. Now, when you visit ShopCock.com and SlappedbyJesus.com, it redirects visitors to an anti-union site. This is likely a response to the incessant teasing from Labor Council representatives on Twitter.
For fun, after the jump I’ve posted a fairly offensive stand-up performance about what it means to be “slapped by Jesus” from Richard Herring, a British comedian I quite like. NOT SAFE FOR WORK!
