Subject: Registering Political Candidate Sites Legal?

Message:
 

 
       
                      Looking for some info about whether it's legal to register and post opposition messages on the web address of a political candidate.  For example if Joe Smith is running for senate/governor/mayor is it legal for me to register JoeSmith.com and put up info about why I think he would make a terrible senator/governor/mayor?  I know this is illegal in the commercial arena but I think the bill stopped short of making it illegal in the political realm.  Are there other avenues in which I could then be liable?  For instance could I be sued for some sort of damages?  Would it make a difference if my site clearly stated that the content was only personal opinion?

I've got a few .info candidate names and I want to have my say.

Thanks for any insight!
