A politician was left red-faced after her Facebook page linked to a porn site rather than to her personal website.

The campaign site and Facebook page of Linda Reid, deputy speaker in British Columbia's legislative assembly, linked to lindareid.com rather than lindareid.ca. The former (which is definitely not safe for work), bears the title “Teen Flesh” and shows a number of young women engaging in sex acts.

The mixup would seem to be a typo, though Reid suggested something more nefarious was afoot.

"We will certainly get to the bottom of it," Reid told CBC News. "There's no way in the world we'd want to give anyone any notoriety for hacking into websites."

Her Facebook page appeared to have been deleted as of Thursday morning.

It's not quite clear who owns the porn site, or why they'd use Reid's name in the URL—a search for adult film actresses working under the name “Linda Reid” turned up no results. According to data from domain registrar GoDaddy, Lindareid.com was registered by its anonymous current owner in January 2010.

The errant link isn't Reid's only problem when it comes to her campaign site as she gears up for the provincial election on May 14.

Elections B.C. said the site doesn’t include authorization from a financial agent. That violates the province's Election Act. Reid told CBC she wasn't aware of any issues.

Who knows, maybe the issues are linked and the porn site is paying Reid for linking to it. Probably not, though it'd be a darn sight less embarrassing than making a typo and pinning the blame on hackers.
