Yesterday Ms Tips confirmed that the RobOakeshott.com website hosting penis pump offers had deflated, but we’ve now heard that two other Rob Oakeshott-related websites, RobOakeshott.com.au and RobOakeshott.net.au, were recently bought — by the Nationals.
It’s not clear whether the party will use them for similar erectile-related marketing purposes, but the two sites are not being used, so it appears the Nationals made a strategic purchase to squat on the domains until after the election. Oakeshott wasn’t happy about it, telling Crikey’s Josh Taylor that the party might prepare attack ads on those sites:
“What on Earth are they doing in that space? It’s pretty low-brow. How low are these guys willing to go?”
There is a process Oakeshott could go through with the AU domain administration body to get his sites back, but the upfront fee would be at least $2000, and well, with just four sleeps until the election, it’s probably not worth it at this point.
