Sen. Mike Groene responds to trolling on Facebook

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. KNOP A scary situation for Nebraska Senator Mike Groene after someone or some group made a fake Facebook page, claiming Groene is a racist, among other charges.

The page has since been taken down from Facebook and is now under the investigation by the Nebraska State Patrol.

While the details of the alleged threats have not been made public, the District 42 Senator tells News 2 he's a Christian and he's far from a white supremacist and will not be intimidated by these threats.

"This radical group created a false Facebook page for me and they made it look it official," Groene said. "We have a problem in America on attack on free speech and debate - that politically correctness; we can't debate each other and be ornery about it."

The Nebraska State Patrol is taking this matter seriously and charges could be pending against the person or people responsible for creating the fake Facebook page.
