As of Monday morning, visitors to the vanity website for Broward County Judge John “Jay” Hurley are redirected to porn-filled causal sex hookup websites via Russia. Last month, REDBROWARD exposed Hurley’s personal website featuring streaming video of his Broward bond court appearances. Hurley’s website used a courthouse video feed provided by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
While Hurley, a fraternity brother of former Governor Charlie Crist, faces re-election in 2016, he has not filed any campaign paperwork. The website is operated by local Democrat operative Ron Mills of Rainbow Usa hosting. Mills told REDBROWARD that Hurley is “fully aware of the website.” He said he is operating the website as a volunteer. Mills said Hurley is “definitely aware of the site….it gets lots of hits.”
Late last week, the website was still fully functional.
On Sunday, REDBROWARD revealed Judge Hurley has been hosting breakfast meetings with many Broward political consultants, operatives, vendors, political party officials and various hangers-on. Photographs posted on the Facebook social media website showed Hurley breaking bread with Norm Leonard, David Brown, Dan Lewis, Barry Harris and others.
Hurley’s blatant political behavior is troubling to many courthouse insiders. Broward County Public Defender Howard Finkelstein was “flabbergasted” that any sitting Broward County Judge would operate a personal website and host weekly political meetings.
Other local attorneys compared Hurley’s actions to those of former Judge Larry Seidlin who bathed in the spotlight of the Anna Nicole Smith drama.
On Sunday evening, Hurley’s website was redirecting vistors to pornography-filled casual sex hookup websites like “Quickflirt.com.” Visitors were redirected via various websites with a Russian domain name. Other website featured naked women in graphic sexual situations.
So what happened? Was Hurley’s website hacked? Did Hurley try to taking the website down? Stay tuned.
**UPDATE** It appears the redirecting affects mobile/tablet users attempting to access JudgeJayHurley.com
