    Former Tech Exec Carly Fiorina Says She's Running for President

    Former technology executive Carly Fiorina says she is running for president. Scott Budman reports. (Published Monday, May 4, 2015)

    A website domain using the name of Presidential hopeful and former Hewlett-Packard tech executive Carly Fiorina shares how many people she fired while leading the Silicon Valley company.

    The homepage of CarlyFiorina.org reads, "Carly Fiorina failed to register this domain. So I'm using it to tell you how many people she laid off at Hewlett-Packard."

    30,000 sad face emojis follow the statement, "It was this many."

    Following the long string of sad faces, it asks, "And what does she say she would have done differently? 'I would have done them all faster,' — Carly Fiorina."

    Fiorina is the latest Republican Presidential hopeful who neglected to grab their domain name before announcing their intentions, only to have a critic register it and use it for skewering purposes. In March, Texas Senator Ted Cruz made headlines for failing to secure TedCruz.com, which bears the messages, "Support President Obama" and "Immigration Reform Now!"

    Unable to wrest that domain away, reported Time, Cruz set up shop at TedCruz.org.
