Congressman Mark Kirk’s official homepage displayed some nasty comments this morning relating to President Obama’s State of the Union speech.

But it wasn’t Kirk that made the statements. Hackers infiltrated the sites of numerous Republicans, including the home page for the Republicans on the House Oversight Committee, Politico.com reports.

“F___ OBAMA!! Red Eye CREW !!!! O RESTO E HACKER !!! by HADES; m4V3RiCk; T4ph0d4 --- FROM BRASIL”

Representatives for Kirk couldn’t be immediately reached for comment, and his Congressional homepage is currently down. 

Kirk’s campaign site, Kirkforsenate.com was not affected.
