Potential Peril of Social Media for Political Aides

The Times reports that an aide to a New York politician resigned after comments posted on his Facebook page came to light.

The aide, Lee Landor, who had been the deputy press secretary to the Manhattan borough president, Scott M. Stringer, since May, posted comments on her Facebook page criticizing Mr. Gates and the president, whom she referred to at one point as “O-dumb-a.”

The reaction was swift after word of Ms. Landor’s online comments spread in city government circles on Monday.
