Yesterday, the website LuisFortuno.com, which used to be the official website of Puerto Rican governor Luis Fortuño's campaign in 2008, appears to have a new owner: Fortuño's major political opponent, the Popular Democratic Party (PPD). The election for governor is this November, and the PPD is pulling no punches. Here is a screen grab of LuisFortuno.com, which shows that the page is now being sponsored by the PPD:

Fortuño's official 2012 site is PorPuertoRico2012.com, but you would think that his campaign could have paid the little money you need to maintain the ownership of your actual name's URL.
