You might have read Tom Davis Website Deceives the Public posted on Ambivalent Mumblings and cross posted on RaisingKaine.
In Case you missed it, here is a "nugget" from the diary.

After I discovered that the Washington Post hadn+óGé¼Gäót declared itself a member of +óGé¼+ôThe Davis Team+óGé¼-¥ for this election, I began to wonder how accurate the other +óGé¼+ôsupporters+óGé¼-¥ were. It turns out that not a single one of the organizations on Davis+óGé¼Gäós list of team members has declared itself a member of +óGé¼+ôThe Davis Team+óGé¼-¥ for the 2006 election cycle. (This is according to his website, which I accessed on the morning of September 10, 2006)

Well, it is now 11:27PM on Sunday September 10, 2006 and there is Only ONE listed group supporting Tom Davis.  It is The National Federation of Independent Business.
Congratulations are in order to Bryan J. Scrafford and his blog Ambivalent Mumblings for bringing this to our attention, and forcing Tom Davis to come clean.  Glad to see the Davis camp is at least reading progressive blogs and wanted to snip this one in the bud before it blew to a full scandal.

PS: This article was first published to the official Hurst 2006 for Congress (VA-11) Blog.  Hurst 2006 Blog, was launched on September 10th to be a one stop source for info on the VA-11 race between Andrew Hurst and Tom Davis III.  Check us out at

Thanks for drawing attention to this, Nate. (Ambivalent Mumblings - 9/11/2006 8:43:28 AM)
No matter what the reasoning, I'm glad to see that he has taken down the misleading endorsements.

Yeah - they read the progressive blogs (Eric - 9/11/2006 11:28:21 AM)
So, if you ever do find anything on a Republican site please SAVE a copy of the page/pdf/image/video to your machine.  Internet archives are unreliable and our Republican counterparts will be quick to remove any unwanted documents.

BTW - whoever is reading this for Tom Davis - you may want to go fix the link to Davis' website from one of the GOP sites.  It goes to  Nice site, but I don't think it's what you want. 

I can't remember which one (perhaps the faifax GOP) and, quite frankly, I'm not going to spend my time tracking it down for you.  But I speak the truth when I say it is wrong. 

That is an excellent suggestion (pitin - 9/11/2006 12:21:42 PM)
It will help document for all future shenanigans by the GOP.

Can anyone get the cached pages of this website? (Andrea Chamblee - 9/13/2006 10:46:36 AM)
I think they existed on his site at /supporters/?id=29, /?=30, /?=35, /?=36 and /?=38.
