SACRAMENTO (AP) — Hackers have targeted the California Legislature’s LGBT caucus chairman by interfering with his campaign website.

The Sacramento Bee reports Assemblyman Evan Low’s campaign website was hacked Friday and later blocked as a security risk. Low says authorities have been notified.

After hackers took over, Low’s website pointed to Facebook pages for groups calling themselves Shadows Team Hackers and Rajaoui PS. The pages featured posts that identified Low as chair of the LGBT caucus. One included an image of a burning rainbow flag that symbolizes gay pride.

Low says the photo represents anti-LGBT imagery.

Low is a Democrat from Campbell. He was reelected to a second term in the California Assembly in November.
