Anonymous Circulates NSFW Photos Of BART Spokesman Linton Johnson
To show they are serious about their ill feelings toward Johnson, members of the group released saucy photos that allegedly show the bare-chested Johnson pulling down his pants, giving a full-frontal view of his genitals. Accompanying the partially nude photos is the following message:
"If you are going to be a dick to the public, then I'm sure you don't mind showing your dick to the public."
Who knows where the vulgar photos originated from, but the pictures are blowing up on Twitter. Johnson became a target after the veteran spokesman told media outlets that it was his idea to shutdown cell-phone service in effort to block coordination of a scheduled protest -- and that it was well within BART's right to do so.
Jim Allison, a spokesman for BART, agency said he would not discuss the photos or any other "private matter" of an employee, but he clearly condemned the release of the photos. "They are not only unethical, but illegal," said Allison. He went on to say that the protesters can keep demonstrating all they want, as long as it's done legally. "There are lawful ways to protest outside the fare gates or go to BART board meetings -- that's appropriate, not making anonymous demands," Allison said. "We stand by our decision to interrupt cell-phone service."
