An Ocean City councilman has declined calls for him to take a leave of absence, saying his Facebook account was hacked in response to Tuesday’s work session discussion of a screenshot circulating on social media of a racist reply sent from his account.  

Ocean City Councilman Mark Paddack said during the session that he contacted the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office and requested an investigation.

He said that he has an attorney and was advised by the lawyer to say no more.

The sheriff’s office confirmed in a Wednesday email that an investigation by Worcester County Bureau of Investigation was launched after the office was contacted by Paddack.

Facebook user Bobby Hammond on Sept. 11 posted a screenshot of the comment sent to Hammond’s spouse in response to a Facebook story. When replying to a Facebook story, the reply can only be seen by the sender and story owner.
