Republican Officials Blame Hackers, Media Matters For Obama Chimpanzee Meme Posted On Facebook
Well this is some B.S. Last week the racist meme you see above was posted from the Facebook timeline of Linda Sorenson, chairwoman of the Delta County Republican Party… Initially Sorenson told Bigmedia.org’s Jason Salzman by phone that the post was a joke and, “I really don’t care if people are offended by it.” She’s also quoted as saying: “Un-friend me. Stop looking at me on Facebook.”
NOW the organization has changed it’s tune. According to Grand Junction Sentinel reports the group is now blaming hackers for the meme:
“This whole thing is a hoax. Someone got into the Facebook somehow,” said Vic Ullrey, vice chairman of the committee. “It was hacked and somebody got into it, definitely.”
When asked why Sorenson was the specific target of the alleged hacking — possibly a federal crime, if true — Ullrey said, “I have no idea,” later adding, “Just to damage the Republican Party, no doubt. … Just to make us look bad,”
Sue Whittlesey, DCRCC treasurer, said, “That whole thing is bogus. Somebody hacked Linda Sorenson’s Facebook page, and posted that out there.”
“We believe it has something to do with (conservative-media watchdog) Media Matters. They’ve been harassing her the last few weeks,” Whittlesey said.
What would you believe??? And how can they blame Media Matters? WTH
