The Demise of the American Center for Voting Rights?

I recently linked to a Brad Blog post noting that the American Center for Voting Rights appeared to have disappeared. This organization, supported by Republicans, had been the most prominent non-governmental group pushing for stricter voter identification laws in the name of preventing voting fraud.

I wanted to cite to some of the material on the ACVR website in my draft paper on the politicization of election reform, but their website appeared down. I sent a few emails to try to find out what was going on, including to Thor Hearne, who was head of the group. So far, I have received no response. In the meantime, as this link shows, the domain name for AVCR is now for sale. Very odd.
