Controversial Facebook Post by Council Candidate

A controversial Facebook post is causing problems for the Paradise town council candidate who wrote it.

Posted: Nov 1, 2018 6:59 PM

Paradise, Calif.-- Action News Now reporter Christina Vitale spoke with Steven Hille about the racist post meant to be private.

Hille posted the comment on one of his friends Facebook pages back in July. Hille doesn't know who leaked the screenshot. 

"I wish the original screenshot would be out there, it's a cut, and the whole context of that original Facebook has been removed and so there's no way going back saying ok here's the entire context cause there were more people on that chat than just me, it was a bunch of friends," Hillie said. 

Hille showed Action News Now the screenshot of his friend's post - reacting to all public comments. He explains how the two were just joking around and asked quote "please do not take offense."

Hille said "mistakes are made and I admit to it that's one of the first things I'll say is that I made a mistake, I apologize."

We're closing out the month of November in a pleasant way in northern California Tuesday. We'll have some gusty wind tonight and early Wednesday, but December will begin with warmer and drier than average weather.
