Republican Leader is Former Computer Pirate


Posted May 1, 2008 - By bleahy

Tony Krvaric, head of San Diego’s GOP Committee, is a co-founding member of a computer piracy group that began in 1987.

The group, Fairlight, was one of the biggest gaming warez groups on the scene, but was eventually busted in 2004. Krvaric had left the group officially in 1994.

In an e-mail response to other Republican officials, Krvaric said:

"Apparently there’s a hit piece floating around on me, “exposing” my wild high school, teenage years where I was in a computer club where we swapped Commodore 64 games (similar to how kids swap mp3 music files these days). This was in the 80’s, on a computer that’s long since defunct!"

What should you take away from all of this? When your parents tell you to stop spending all that time on the computer playing games and hacking, you just say, "One day I could be the leader of the GOP Committee in San Diego. Also, I'd have a weird name."
