Simpson is running for House District 46. Larry Clark's current seat. Someone from Clark's campaign, Clark himself, or a supporter apparently decided it would be cute to hijack Simpson's Facebook account info and post the following derogatory comments.
Check them out yourself but fair warning the language is graphic:
Here is the press release from Simpson:
Press Release from Brian Simpson concerning his Facebook account.
As many of you know I am a current candidate for KY House District 46 challenging longtime incumbent Rep. Larry Clark. Today while at work I was notified of some serious comments being posted on my public facebook page. These comments were derogatory and sexual in nature and certainly were not put there by myself.
I am outraged at the blatant attempt by either Larry Clark or one of his supporters to assassinate my Campaign and my character. I once was told that "when they attack you they know you are credible." Apparently the Clark campaign is worried.
These type tactics are just one more reason why we need fresh faces and new leadership in our elected officials. The people deserve better than this type of campaigning.
I am writing to let the people know that I have no knowledge of who did this at this time nor would I ever sink to such a low level in campaigning.
Rest assured I am doing everything I can to determine who illegally broke into my account. It is an insult to not only current supporters but anyone who dares rise up to accept the challenge of public service. More importantly it is a disservice to the voter who expect our leaders to be above this fray.
The time for these types of personal attacks by opponents are over. It is time for fresh leadership.
Candidate 46th House District
