Mike Bouchard has porn link on his Facebook feed

Bouchardporn UPDATE:  BOUCHARD'S CAMPAIGN HAVE TAKEN THE FACEBOOK SPAM LINK OFF OF THEIR NEWSFEED.

Michigan Democrats should not get all self-righteous and haughty when I say this because it can happen to them too.

Republican gubernatorial hopeful Mike Bouchard has a link to porn on his Facebook page.  I have no doubt it's spam, but the fact that it's there points to a huge problem with politicians using social media sites.

I clicked on the link promoting an "amazing video" thinking that Bouchard and his crew put together some kind of viral video for their campaign.  I clicked on it and it was a link to porn.

I looked to his information page for a phone number for his campaign and found none.  I did the same on his Facebook fan page and found no contact information.

What does this show?  He and his campaign are not attentive to the social media that they use.  The new internet tools can be a real asset to a campaign and to building a group that talks with its leader and each other.  But, it can also be a negative.

From my days as a staffer in the Michigan Senate, I remember Bouchard as a real family guy with kids.  Pay attention to this stuff and be sure to add contact info on  your Facebook pages.
