Kansas Gov. Scrubs Sarcastic Posts From Facebook Page

Views

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback might want to rethink his social media strategy.

First, he landed a teenager in the principal’s office after complaining about comments posted on her Twitter account. Now his Facebook page has been bombarded with critical — and mostly sarcastic — comments about an anti-abortion measure making its way through the state legislature. The comments have been purged from the page, Mashable reports.Here are a few of the alleged comments:

  • “Hi Sam- I had sex with my wife and she didn’t get pregnant. I’m here to turn her in.”
  • “I just called your office, and they wouldn’t let me schedule a pap smear. I’m confused, aren’t you taking care of all this now?”
  • “Hey Governor Brownback, I was considering going on birth control because I’m fed up with being a teacher who has acne. Which one would you recommend for this?”

Brownback’s office did not return TPM’s requests for comment.
