Peggy Littleton returned our call about the alleged hacking and reiterated that she had not made the first posts.
She said she hadn't known about the posts until people began calling her about them this morning. She says she then gave her Facebook password to a friend, who posted the message about her Facebook account being hacked.
Littleton, who is just returning from a Webinar in Denver, says she plans to contact the police chief for advice on fixing the problem.
"Obviously, I won't be contacting the sheriff's department," she says with a laugh.
——- ORIGINAL POST, TODAY, 12:58 P.M.———
If you've been paying attention to the scandal
involving El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa
, then you probably know that El Paso County Commissioner Peggy Littleton
has been pretty vocal about it.
Littleton was the first commissioner to call for Maketa to resign over a string of alleged affairs with subordinates, and she's been giving regular interviews expressing her dismay over the situation.
Thus, it wasn't surprising when posts bearing her name popped up under the Gazette
's latest story
on the scandal, which was focused on Maketa's wife, Vicki, and her continued support of her husband.
The contents of the comments, however, were unexpectedly edgy. One suggested that Terry Maketa may have "NPD" (presumably Narcissistic Personality Disorder). Another suggested that someone — presumably Vicki — contact TESSA, a local nonprofit that helps victims of domestic and sexual violence.
But that's not the end of the story. Since then, Littleton has since posted a comment saying she never made the previous comments, and that her Facebook page was hacked. And the plot thickens?
