Senate Hopeful’s Name Was on Offensive Blog

The blogosphere is buzzing over a New York Times story on New York state Senate hopeful Marc Cenedella, the founder of job-search site TheLadders.com. It seems that postings on a company blog featuring his name and photo may come back to haunt him. The blog, called “The Personal Blog of Marc Cenedella,” contained advice on polishing résumés and preparing for job interviews, but also contained random entries about sex, drugs, and women, with headlines like “Sexy vs. Skanky” and “Dating Advice for Girly Girls.” The site has recently been disabled, and Cenedella’s company said the page was not a personal blog but a “maintenance staging site” and that the “staging site contained testing content from a wide variety of sources, including spam from automatic spiders.”
