Artur Davis has responded to GotNews.com’s exclusive story about how he appeared on the Ashley Madison hack list.
The black Democrat congressman-turned-GOP convention speaker-turned Montgomery mayoral candidate says his opponent’s operatives are behind our story but the IP addresses released in the Ashley Madison hack show that Davis was using the site long before he ran for mayor.
There were two IP addresses in the Ashley Madison leak pertaining to accounts associated with Davis.
The first number was in New York. Here it is: 126.96.36.199
The second number was in Littleton, Colorado. Here it is:,188.8.131.52
The Littleton IP address connects to the Hotel Jerome.
We’ve reached out to the Davis campaign to see if he stayed at that hotel in the last year. We will update this post when we find out.
There’s some rumors from the Artur Davis campaign that we got this information from Todd Strange. Those rumors are categorically false in every respect. We didn’t even know that there was an election in Montgomery until after we IDed Artur Davis in the Virginia file. Have a look for yourself. We haven’t even been to Montgomery though we hear it’s a nice place (though a touch criminal!)
Meanwhile Alabamans are weighing in on Twitter.

Every time I have had a card compromised, the bank always tells me where it was used. @ArturDavis
