ST. LOUIS — A freshman Missouri lawmaker from Jackson says her Facebook account was hacked, with someone posting an embarrassing status update on her page.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Facebook page for Republican Rep. Donna Lichtenegger displayed a message on Thursday naming gifts from lobbyists as one of the perks of her new job that she likes most.

The update reads, "I love lobbyist! All the free food and stuff you get. This job is awesome!"

Lichtenegger said she did not write the posting, and she plans to have the incident investigated.
