Thanks to an expiring domain registration, someone has taken the Arkansas Governor's URL and ensured it redirects to a LGBT community focused chat room and forum.

Expected to be in retaliation to Asa Hutchinson's harsh stance on the LGBT community, Hutchinson recently refused "to veto a bill which banned local governments in Arkansas from passing anti-discrimination ordinances to protect LGBT residents," as reported by Gizmodo.

 

According to Vocativ, this domain was taken over by a college student by the name of Dylan Hailey. In an interview with this news website, Hailey claims to currently own the domain registration details to 27 politicians now with no intentions to stop in the future.
