SITE HACKED: Republican Website Down

Website hackers pulled a fast one on Iowa Senate Republicans over the weekend.
The website used by the Iowa Senate Republican Caucus is typically used to share information about GOP state senators, but Monday the normal home page was replaced with a picture of a young woman in a lab coat. Underneath the picture were the words, “Ayumi… there is only one reason for loving you…”

A spokeswoman for the Senate Republicans says the attack was discovered Monday morning and they were still working to fix it by the afternoon.

Party officials aren’t sure what could have motivated the attack. The website is paid for through private money and is not part of the state system.
