New Jersey city council candidate sends porn through Facebook

by

A “hacker” allegedly managed to get into city council candidate Nidia Lopez’s Facebook account and sent porn to many of her friends.  Lopez immediately apologized to her supporters and blamed her opponent for the incident.

Only 10 supporters so far.  Ouch.

Lopez wrote the following on her Facebook wall:

Please be advised that Ms. Lopez’s facebook page was hacked and the videos that you might have received from her facebook page were not sent out by Nidia R. Lopez nor her campaign. … We apologize for these unfortunate circumstances and we are confident that this matter will be corrected very soon. It has become obvious that Nidia’s opposition for the City Council has become desperately worried that Nidia’s message for change and her candidacy has become a serious threat to their efforts. Unfortunately they will stop at nothing to deter her. … Ms. Lopez’s opponents unfortunately want to resort to immature pranks and a smear campaign because they do not possess a platform nor solutions to address the issues facing the Journal Square residents. … please call your family and friends to let them know that our opponents have become desperate and that our commitment to delivering change we can see is strengthened with these types of attacks.

My bet?  These “hackers” just guessed her password.  It’s like the Sarah Palin email incident last year.  If you have an easy password, then you leave yourself at risk.
