SHASTA COUNTY, Calif - An online candidate forum , featuring two candidates for California's 1st District U.S. Congressional Seat was hacked Thursday night.
The incident happened during a live feed, when viewers watching online were surprised when homosexual pornography appeared on their screens instead.
“We had some pranksters who were not keen on that mission and that's disappointing but we are already moving forward,” said moderator Chris Verrill.
The group "Independent Like the North State" organized the event, and has informed Action News Now they'll be rescheduling that event for Sunday the 20th.
