A North Dakota legislator from Fargo said he is not sure how two posts condemning Islam appeared on his Facebook page.
The Dickinson Press Rep. Jim Kasper, R-Fargo, said he may have been hacked by political opponents on the night of Monday, Jan. 13. A post shared from Kasper’s account reads “The whole world has one common problem[:] Islam.” There is no comment from Kasper’s account on the post, which was originally shared by Facebook user Mark W. Patton. Kasper has since deleted the post.
Another article shared from the account just seven minutes before said “Minnesota’s Twin Cities are lost” to “the Islamic Movement.” Kasper said he did not share this post either.
Kasper posted a brief apology Tuesday that explains he did not share the posts. He added that he is “puzzled” by the situation and will change his Facebook password to ensure it does not happen again.
