Alberta RCMP are confirming they are investigating after Leela Aheer, a candidate in the United Conservative Party leadership race, reported that some of her social media accounts had been compromised.
Aheer, who was elected in the riding of Chestermere-Strathmore in 2019, says she was shocked to discover that both her personal and public Facebook accounts had been hacked.
In a Twitter post, she called it a targeted attack and said there were inappropriate messages being sent through it as a result.
She says that her account was being used for sexual exploitation and that --quote -- ``we will find the perpetrators.''
"This is an attack leveraged to hurt our campaign, but we won't back down," she said.
