Who is Behind Internet Dirty Tricks on State Rep. Candidate?

Cephus Richard is a law school student at the U of A Fayetteville who filed to run against Rep. Lindsley Smith, a liberal Democrat. Someone put up several insulting websites depicting young Mr. Richard as a gang-banger and the like. The sites and images have been taken down now, but a semi-anonymous source claims that all the sites can be traced to one Tyronne Adams of Youngsville LA.

The same source provided several links to images that they claim.....

UPDATE: FRIEND OF CEPHUS CLAIMS PICS CAME FROM FAYETTEVILLE,

For her part, Representative Smith has disavowed the "Cephus Banner" and the racist statments with this statement....

"Lindsley Smith said...
In my campaign pledge, I stated that I am primarily concerned with the overall ability of all candidates to perform the task of the office in a competent and effective fashion. I shall emphasize my views, beliefs, and experiences. I shall focus on issues relating to the office I seek and will avoid personal attacks on my opponent. I shall avoid demeaning references to my opponent and demeaning visual images of my opponent. I shall not make any statements concerning personal characteristics or traits of any opposing candidates that have no bearing upon a candidate’s ability to perform the position being sought. I shall not use nor permit the use of false or misleading statements, character defamation, whispering campaigns, or scurrilous attacks on any candidate or his or her personal life or family, nor shall I engage in unwarranted invasions of personal privacy unrelated to campaign issues.I shall not use nor permit any appeal to prejudice based upon race, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, physical disability, or age. I will not condone outside party advertising that does not meet these principles. If any such practices are used on my behalf or against any opponent by outside parties without my knowledge, I shall repudiate it immediately and publicly upon my knowledge of its occurrence. I hereby publicly repudiate the above Internet sites and ask that the person or persons responsible remove them from the Internet.

Let me add that the sites made it appear that they were the work of Mr. Richard himself.

No way Lindsley Smith knew about this in advance. It had to be a overzealous supporter. Some of those Democrats don't take kindly to black folks who decide to leave the Democrat Plantation.

Dear Readers,

We extend our thanks to you for assisting us in coming to our friend's defense. Ms. Smith seems to have denied her involvement in this. Let us reassure you that is not the truth.

It is our belief that the banner was created upon her computer. We believe the main graphic that was posted on the richard4representative.COM website was created upon Mr. Adams' computer.

Our attention to this injustice was due to the use of the word nupe. Please review your logs and verify the IP addresses from which "nupe" made posts to these blog.

You will find that it is unlikely that Mr. Adams was the one posting for "nupe" and that those posts originated from Fayetteville, AR and the University of Arkansas campus.

Pursue Justice and Peace,

FH&CG&FFD
