GOP Rep Busted Sock-Puppeting Own Facebook Page

Law & Crime reports:

An Arizona congresswoman was called out for posting fake compliments to her own Facebook page on Monday. On Sunday afternoon, Republican Representative Martha McSally posted an uncontroversial and innocuous status update regarding Arizonans’ service during the Vietnam War.

Quite a bit more controversially, however, McSally – or her social media director–immediately moved to post the first comment on the update in an apparent bid to highlight some pro-McSally sock-puppetry.

The comment has since been deleted. McSally is currently locked in a contentious primary battle for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jeff Flake. Her opponents include Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward and former sheriff Joe Arpaio.
