A FIANNA FÁIL TD has said his Facebook page was hacked after the account ‘liked’ a site delivering pictures of MILFs.

Michael McGrath, the party’s finance spokesperson, took his official page down entirely after a screengrab of the ‘like’ began circulating online.

He explained today that he believed his account had been compromised, saying:

I definitely did not go on to that website and like the page. I’m not sure where that image originated.

This image was posted to Reddit by user RevolutionaryCommie:

MILF of the Day (link NSFW) is a Facebook page posting what it calls “photos/videos of Sexy Mums across the World!” It has 87,294 likes at the time of writing – an extra 4,000 since the screencap was taken.

McGrath told DailyEdge.ie that he was first alerted to the incident on Saturday.

That screen capture was brought to my attention by friends of mine who would have sent me emails and texts. So I deactivated my Facebook account, not knowing what had happened or how I came to be associated with the page.

The Cork South Central TD’s page remains down this afternoon, with McGrath saying:

I’m not going to reactivate it until I’m sure that the account is fully secure.

He added that he had not yet been able to find out where the hack originated, but was hoping to learn more. “I could do without it to be honest,” McGrath said. “It’s certainly a case of getting burned online.”

Independent Senator Fidelma Healy Eames hit headlines internationally earlier this year when she raised the practice of ‘fraping’ – playing pranks on other users’ Facebook pages – in an Oireachtas committee.
