Political Cybersquatter Seeks Access

National Journal profiles Michael Deutsch, a little-known Florida resident who "has made it something of a hobby to snatch away desirable digital destinations from unwitting politicians."

"Deutsch isn't in it for the money. He's just a self-diagnosed 'C-SPAN junkie' who says he wants 'a chance to look behind the curtain.' And he learned more than a decade ago that, as a man without the wealth to buy his way into intimate fundraisers, his best shot at getting close to the political stars that so fascinate him was to buy up political domain names early and leverage them later for some face time."
