Blake Farenthold Relaxes Grip on Sex-Related Domain

One lucky porn pusher will be able to exploit a whole new traffic stream this summer — just as soon as Rep. Blake Farenthold relinquishes control of  

The Texas Republican had the prescience of mind to snatch up the salacious sounding domain back during his cyber-speculating days, laying claim to the sodomitic-sounding site in 1999.  


A tipster uncovered the carnal connection, an oversight Team Farenthold has since corrected by cloaking the names of his other cybersquatting investments.  

“Prior to serving in Congress, Mr. Farenthold operated a computer consulting company that routinely bought domain names including the one in question. The domain name has never been used and Mr. Farenthold has no intention to renew it,” Farenthold spokesman Michael Rekola told HOH.  

Those interested in monetizing the niche address will have to wait until Farenthold’s stake expires in late July.  

But what else is a smut peddler to do, what with and being already taken?
