The Delta County Republican Central Committee is stating a racist meme posted on one of their chairperson's Facebook page was done by hackers.

A photo of Ronald Reagan bottle-feeding a chimpanzee appeared on Delta County Committee Chairwoman Linda Sorenson’s page last week. The image is an internet meme which read, "I’ll be damned… Reagan used to babysit Obama."

Vic Ullrey, vice chairman of the committee told the Grand Junction Sentinel,

“This whole thing is a hoax. Someone got into the Facebook somehow. It was hacked and somebody got into it, definitely.”

However, Sorenson was quoted by the Big Media Blog saying,

“I really don’t care if people are offended by it. Un-friend me. Stop looking at me on Facebook.”

The meme, which has been removed from Sorenson, can be seen on the Grand Junction Sentinel's website.
