    Yup, but we're not 100% sure that his campaign/administration is actually responsible for this, maybe some *fans* are doing this on his behalf, who knows... well. Haven't checked the whois but I wouldn't bother.

    It could be that someone was typo squatting the domain and also happend to be a Obama supporter, decided to throw traffic his way.

    Actually if you check closely:
    Code:
    myspaec.com redirects to http://www.barackobama.com which redirects to https://donate.barackobama.com/page/contribute/dnc08splashnd
    
    Definitely concludes who's behind it. Frankly I dont care :)

    I'm no expert on that kind of thing, but just because it redirects doesn't mean it is them does it?

    No it doesn't, anyone can buy a typo domain and redirect it to frankly any HTTP site in existence.
