Sydney, July 9 (ANI): An Australian federal Greens candidate has revealed that the pornographic images posted from her Facebook account is the work of a hacker.

Dr Patricia Petersen, a Greens candidate for the southeast Queensland seat of Blair, said her 3200 Facebook friends would have seen the images.

"I'm shocked that someone would do something like this," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as saying.

"Sending out pornographic images to people, especially when minors could be exposed to them, is morally reprehensible. It is beyond comprehension," she said.

She said that she has been the target of a smear campaign since announcing her candidacy, and that the police are investigating the matter.

"Having run at two federal elections, I am not a political novice," she said.

"I know what it's like to be in the midst of an electoral campaign. There's always mud throwing and dirty politics.

"However, this, if it is an act of political sabotage, would indicate that politics within Australia has hit a new low," she added. (ANI)
