SHARING AMERICA'S TECH NEWS FROM THE VALLEY TO THE ALLEY
by George Szalai –
Dotcom, who is accused by the U.S. of participating in a “mega conspiracy,” confirmed reports that he could launch a party that would run in the 2014 general election on Twitter.
“My embryonic NZ political plans leaked by whistleblower,” he tweeted over the weekend with a picture of a newspaper headline. “Still looking for partners. Not ready yet :-)”
On Monday, Dotcom continued to tout the plans. “After the 2014 election I will get New Zealanders a new submarine cable, fair Internet pricing & no more data caps. #Gimme5Percent,” he said in a tweet that hinted at some of his focus issues in the election.
Full details about the party, its program vision and candidates will be announced on Jan. 20, 2014, Dotcom said on Twitter. The date will be two years after police raided his mansion outside of Auckland to look for evidence that he was involved in the biggest copyright infringement conspiracy in history.
Tweeted Dotcom: “The party website with information about our vision & candidates will launch with another BIG event on Jan 20, 2014. Second raid anniversary.”
He also tweeted at some point on Monday: “WOW! I’m getting so many encouraging messages about my plans for a new political party. Thank you. Like to help me? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.”
