Porn posted on country administrator’s Facebook page

OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. (WZZM) — Ottawa County Administrator Al Vanderberg says someone hacked his Facebook page and posted embarrassing links to pornography. And he is not amused.

“I’m ordained as an elder in my church,” he says. “I absolutely take this very seriously.”

The unauthorized post is from Facebook user Ana Bana.

When a viewer clicks on one of three links, they are directed to a more explicit web site.

“I was in such a hurry to remove it I didn’t really click on it,” says Vanderberg. “Someone called me and told me it was there and gave me an opportunity to deactivate the page.”

As Administrator, Vanderberg is in charge of Ottawa County’s $150 million budget and day to day operations.

“I don’t think it was an intentional act against me,” he says. “I didn’t take it that way. I don’t know if it is random or if people just do this kind of thing.”

Vanderberg says this isn’t the first time he’s been hacked.

5 years ago he says someone broke into his Facebook and Gmail accounts, told his contacts he was stranded in England and to please send money.

“I might be off Facebook for a while because I don’t know that much about it and I’m going to have to have somebody help me work through it and figure out that its safe again,” he says.
