FBI Arrests New Jersey Mayor and Son for Hacking
Reasons to ‘Recall Roque’, the Mayor of West New York, N.J., seem to be apparent without visiting the website by that name.
For starters, Felix Roque and his 22 year old son Joseph were arrested by the FBI Thursday for allegedly hacking GoDaddy.com, where the anti-Roque website’s domain was registered, reports Politico. The pair allegedly shut down RecallRoque.com, though GoDaddy.com reports no effects to its own infrastructure.
But that’s not all. Politico says the unsealed criminal complaint also accuses the Mayor of making threatening phone calls to the government official in Hudson County, N.J. responsible for the online recall campaign.
The Roques are scheduled to appear in Federal court on Thursday.
The good news is that the internet is a bastion of learning: the Roques apparently learned Hacking-101 for free by surfing the web.
