A fake Facebook post was created this weekend that depicted a candidate in the 12th District runoff race in an obscene manner.

Lee Anderson called the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday to report that someone had created a false Facebook account under his name, according to an incident report.

Anderson said a picture was posted on the page of his face on the body of another man who was engaged in sexual activity. The picture also was posted on Anderson’s campaign Web site and e-mailed to many people on his contact list, according to the report.

The picture has been deleted from Facebook and Anderson’s campaign Web site.

Both Facebook and the creators of Anderson’s Web site were alerted to the incident, the report stated.

Anderson will face either Rick Allen or Wright McLeod in a runoff race Aug. 21.

somewhat accurate

Well Anderson certainly did screw the local taxpayers over T-Splost.. but that of course still does not excuse this reprehensible act, as their is no excuse for Anderson's yes vote on the reprehensible T-splost bill.

Lee Anderson voting to subject Columbia County to more taxes because of the uneducated voters in corrupt Richmond County. Now that's obscene!

@ Lee Benedict

I checked with the News editor, and this is the first we have heard about the Maria Sheffield FB posting.

Sorry, but that is hilarious. I can only imagine the look on the face of old country boy Lee when he opened up his email and saw that picture! Must be retaliation for his vocal support of TSPLOST. Sad that more voters in Columbia County didn't even pay attention that he voted for it and voted for him anyway. Our Representative Republic is a failed one because people don't educate themselves....and still vote!

Why Single Out Lee on the T-SPLOST ??

Unpublished

There were a boatload of other representatives that voted to allow the people to decide. Why single out Lee ? Get a life. As far as Maria goes, this is also the first I've heard about this. I hope the person or persons who did both of these acts, understand that they could be spending time in Big Boy Jail. This is not a county level crime.

A picture of Lee's head

Unpublished

on Allen Jackson's body would have been much better. Did anyone ever think that he may have posted this himself? To get sympathy? To be the victim? These guys will do anything to get to DC. DC is the lottery of life. Drag their cancer ridden relatives out of the ICU.

For the record...

Me and the group I am a part of on Facebook had nothing to do with this and we oppose this type of behavior.
