Christopher Walken 2008 is a Hoax
1)All of the images of Walken can be found on other websites. Most of them show up with simple a Google image search.
2)A who is look up returned the following data:
Administrative Contact: Strickland, Richard
I tried calling the number several times to speak with the admin, the number has been disconnected. I doubt any legitimate web designer that was lucky enough to be contracted for such a major project would have a disconnected phone
3) The press release for this site states that a press conference was held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in
4) In the bio page there is a reference to the famous cow bell skit, to me this reeks of fanboyism.
Now, I could still be wrong, and this could be for real but I doubt it. Monday, I plan to call the IRS and see if there is any record of the non profit “Christopher Walken for President” that allegedly paid for the site. I am by no means a campaign finance expert but, to my knowledge such groups have to register with the government and that information should be public record. In closing I would actually would like to tip my hat to the hoaxsters involved. At first glance the site is rather convincing and actually had me for a second.
A tip of the hat to mrstbone9112 for this insightful post in the comment section. Please note, I have not been able to confirm this. But it sounds very legit.
Just an FYI - any Presidential candidate or candidate for the US House or US Senate must register with the Federal Election Commission (www.fec.gov) prior to accepting any contributions for their campaign. They should also register with the IRS for a taxpayer ID number. Walken's "committee" is not registered with the FEC or the IRS, so we can only conclude that this is a hoax. Furthermore, a presidential candidate who has an official website without any means to contribute $$ to their campaign is extremely questionable.
