(AP) - Anonymous supporters of a Sacramento homeless protest have used social media to promote the home addresses and phone numbers of members of the City Council.
The Sacramento Bee reports that it's unclear who posted the information online. But Twitter accounts linked to international hacking group Anonymous and the Operation Right to Rest movement linked to the information. Both groups are supporting activists trying to overturn the city's anti-camping ordinance.
Sacramento Police Chief Sam Somers Jr. says his department is looking into the postings. He says a lot of the information is accessible from public websites and a lot of personal information posted is inaccurate.
The spokesman and organizers of the homeless camp outside City Hall could not be reached for comment Wednesday morning.
