Harvey Dent wins in a landslide June 13th, 2008

I Believe in Har­vey Dent has updated, to announce that Har­vey Dent is vic­to­ri­ous in his cam­paign to become Gotham City’s dis­trict attor­ney. Was it likely any­one else would win?

Har­vey Dent wishes to thank all of the peo­ple of Gotham who helped turn a grass­roots move­ment into a resound­ing suc­cess on Elec­tion Day.

Har­vey Dent’s land­slide vic­tory means great things for the city of Gotham. Because of your belief in Har­vey Dent, Gotham now has a Dis­trict Attor­ney who will make war on crime and corruption.

The real work, how­ever, is just begin­ning. Har­vey Dent now moves on to City Hall, where every cor­rupt force will try to tie his hands and weaken the people’s will to destroy orga­nized crime and snuff out cor­rup­tion. The move­ment to take back Gotham still needs your help.

We hope you con­tinue your sup­port of Har­vey Dent. More than ever, he’s going to need every cit­i­zen on his side to ensure vic­tory over the destruc­tive forces that are wreak­ing havoc on our city.

Thanks Keith!

New Video on GCN June 13th, 2008

Keith has writ­ten in to tell us that GCN has updated this morn­ing with footage of Har­vey Dent’s press cam­paign in the “Dent mobile”:

Watch video

You can’t take a walk in Gotham these days with­out see­ing the enor­mous out­pour­ing of sup­port for Har­vey Dent.

Lawn signs with the famil­iar slo­gan “Take Back Gotham” are vis­i­ble on almost every street in the neigh­bor­hood. Win­dow plac­ards look down upon almost every shop­ping district.

And every­where, you can see Dent sup­port­ers, young and old, of every color and back­ground, pass­ing out fly­ers and talk­ing to Gotham voters.

And it all started with a phone call.

Voting has ended June 12th, 2008

The Gotham Local Elec­tions have now ended as of June 13th, the results are being counted and shall be announced later today — pos­si­bly on the “Gotham Tonight” show?

Viral kicks up, Joker text messages June 11th, 2008

The Joker has sent out this mes­sage to all the active cell phones:

OK clowns, are you ready for some laughs (y/n)?
You put a smile on my face. Hope you’re not superstitious

Super­sti­tion relates to the day — Fri­day 13th June. We already know that’s when “Gotham Tonight” will pre­mier, maybe The Joker has some­thing in store for them?

A new email from Har­vey Dent:

It’s been an incred­i­ble last few weeks. Ever since the vicious smear cam­paign col­lapsed and Har­vey Dent’s remark­able courage at the hostage cri­sis at Rossi’s Deli, our cam­paign has rid­den a wave of sup­port I have never seen in all my polit­i­cal life.

Our Head­quar­ters reopened and thou­sands of vol­un­teers show up here every day, every night, fight­ing for change. Fundrais­ing has reached incred­i­ble heights, with over 100,000 Gotham cit­i­zens con­tribut­ing their hard-earned money in sup­port of Har­vey Dent’s vow to take back Gotham.

We’ve expanded our reach, open­ing branches in neigh­bor­hoods that haven’t seen polit­i­cal cam­paigns take them seri­ously for decades. And we’ve har­nessed the incred­i­ble grass­roots sup­port by send­ing vol­un­teers to knock on doors through­out the city. Amaz­ingly, we will achieve our two mil­lionth door knock some­time in between now and Elec­tion Day.

Har­vey Dent has com­mit­ted him­self to lead the charge to take back our city, face down the crim­i­nal and cor­rupt and restore hope for our future.

Now, we need your help. We need to get out the vote!. And we need you to vote your­self. If you can’t make it to the polls, go to http://​www​.gotham​elec​tion​board​.com and find out how you can vote online. Work­ing together, we will take back Gotham!

Gotham City Rail Announces Satel­lite Track­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions System

To bet­ter serve our cus­tomers, GCR has com­pleted its tran­si­tion to a satel­lite track­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tem (STCS). Using cut­ting edge ultra high fre­quency tech­nol­ogy, STCS will give GCR the real-time abil­ity to track exact posi­tion­ing of all its trains. This will allow for more accu­rate sched­ul­ing and should increase GCR’s already impres­sive safety record.

More Viral Updates April 25th, 2008

Bryan has been in con­tact to inform us of a large num­ber of updates to assorted viral sites.

Ibelievein­har­vey­dent has updated with a mes­sage from Har­vey Dent for his sup­port­ers that stuck with him through­out the slur cam­paign. Down­load Audio Mes­sage. Zdravko has also told us about an email he received from the Har­vey Dent campaign:

What a dif­fer­ence a week makes.

Last week, our cam­paign looked like it was on its last legs. The media was bury­ing us, and urged us to with­draw for the sake of Gotham City. The smear cam­paign, with its vicious lies against Har­vey Dent, spread fear, uncer­tainty, and doubt about the one man who can save Gotham.

But now - thanks to peo­ple like you - things look very dif­fer­ent. Thou­sands of peo­ple gath­ered in the Dent for DA head­quar­ters for its reopen­ing. And I saw some­thing dif­fer­ent in the crowd. Some­thing has changed. The “White Knight Inci­dent,” as it has become known, is allow­ing peo­ple to see Har­vey Dent dif­fer­ently. Not just as a man with the guts and the tough­ness to change Gotham. But as a sym­bol of the best of Gotham City - a Gotham we almost for­got existed.

But that Gotham City does exist. It’s a Gotham where ordi­nary peo­ple can walk out their door at night with­out fear­ing for their lives. It’s a Gotham where the good can tri­umph over the evil. It’s a Gotham where jus­tice isn’t just for the rich and pow­er­ful, but for everyone.

With your help, we’ll bring back that vision of Gotham. On Elec­tion Day, every­thing changes. Har­vey Dent will take back Gotham City — thanks to the hard work of peo­ple like you.

See you on elec­tion day!

Gotham Voter Survey April 18th, 2008

I recently got a call to my cell phone, via the num­ber I sub­mit­ted to the Acme Secu­rity Sys­tems web­site, ask­ing me to take part in a Gotham Vot­ers Sur­vey. The call asks your opin­ions about Har­vey Dent with a rat­ing of 0–9 for each ques­tion, they are very prob­ing ques­tions and ask how Harvey’s men­tal state, fail­ure to file tax returns and links to organ­ised crime affect your view of him.

At the end of the call they pro­vide a num­ber to give to friends if they wish to take part — 8777776197.

Down­load the recorded call with secret mes­sage at the end

This cor­re­sponds with an update on CCFABG,

Mes­sage from the Webmaster:

You may be won­der­ing why I haven’t updated this site recently. Well, you wouldn’t either, if you were fac­ing legal actions like slan­der charges and defama­tion of char­ac­ter accusations.

I can’t afford to get sued for hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars, espe­cially now that every­one who sup­ported this site is “unavail­able” or “can’t remem­ber” they had any­thing to do with the site.

If I weren’t wait­ing for my last pay­check, I’d go on a lit­tle “vaca­tion” myself. In fact, if you don’t get any more updates from me in the next few days, it means I did just that.

This whole smear cam­paign has been a real SOURCE of con­ster­na­tion for me. I’ll be glad when it’s all in the past. And you know what? I just might vote for Har­vey Dent.

William Bucksworth-Haven, Web­mas­ter Extraordinaire

Which, when entered as answers on the sur­vey reveal a secret message.

Edmund has also sent in this mes­sage (thanks!) that he received from Jim Gor­don (jim.​gordon@​gpdmcu.​com):

My friend,
Indict­ments are about to be handed down. If you don’t want your name on one, we’ll need your full coöper­a­tion in an upcom­ing operation.

In case you haven’t heard, we are strug­gling with a bit of cor­rup­tion in the depart­ment. I’m not about to let the Gotham PD col­lapse in on itself, so we’re tak­ing action. We’ve iden­ti­fied a group of offend­ers that need to be appre­hended. Prob­lem is, most of these cops are high­tail­ing it out of the city. But a C.I. just like you just gave us some infor­ma­tion on their last known where­abouts. Now all we need is to catch them. This is where you come in.

Con­sider your­self on deck. I’ll con­tact you next week, and let’s just say it’s in your best inter­est to play along. County’s not a place you want to spend the rest of your life.

Lt. Jim Gor­don, MCU

Conference Cancelled, Hostage Episode Ensues April 13th, 2008

From the Har­vey Dent website,

Today’s press con­fer­ence was unex­pect­edly can­celled due to a hostage cri­sis located at a nearby deli. In a self­less move, Mr. Dent entered the premises, exchanged him­self for a woman who was being held at gun­point, and nego­ti­ated the suc­cess­ful release of the remain­ing patrons in the restau­rant. Watch this site for updates. We will release more details when they become available.

Down­load the MP3 Audio of the situation

The hostage sit­u­a­tion was insti­gated by des­per­ate cop, Frank Notaro, he takes a woman hostage before request­ing wit­ness pro­tec­tion for him and his fam­ily. Har­vey Dent exchanges him­self for the woman before Notaro is arrested.

This all took place at Rossi’s Deli — Notaro’s mad­ness was tripped in the event of see­ing his part­ners (Cis­neros) death in a car explo­sion, also killing his entire fam­ily — all whilst leav­ing a mes­sage on Rossi’s answer phone. Down­load the voice­mail mes­sage and lis­ten to the scene

For some back story on Frank Notaro I rec­om­mend read­ing our cov­er­age.

Glenn Barhyte’s email, acces­si­ble through the secu­rity pages at Gotham Police, has two new mes­sages from Frank:

Deal’s Off
I saw it. With my own eyes. Best part­ner I ever had. Dead. What the hell’s going on?

Thank’s For Nothin
Looks like you’re out hav­ing break­fast or some­thing. I knew I couldn’t trust IA to keep my fam­ily safe. I’m going to Rossi’s Deli to take care of Con­do­loro myself, don’t try to stop me.
