The "liked" tweets were removed from the department's twitter page.
What's the connection between President Donald Trump and the Monroe County Parks Department?
Some political tweets that Messenger Post's news partner, News10NBC discovered.
The tweets violate the county's rules on social media and after we started making calls, the tweets went away.
On Aug. 22, the Monroe County Parks Department's twitter page "liked" seven tweets by President Trump.
One tweet included the term "witch hunt", another one mentioned his former lawyer Michael Cohen who recently plead guilty, one mentioned "Crooked Hillary Clinton," another had the word justice in quotation marks.
None of the tweets had anything to do with parks.
Larry Staub is the director of the Monroe County Parks Department. The county says he's the one who liked the tweets.
Staub was a Donald Trump delegate at the Republican Party National Convention in Cleveland two years ago.
After News10NBC called his office and the county executive's communication office Wednesday morning, we got this response:
"The 'likes' were accidentally made from the parks department's account by a person who intended those items for their personal account. The parks department apologizes for the error and has removed those 'likes'."
We tried to reach Larry Staub at his office again Wednesday afternoon.
"I just want to make sure I give Larry every opportunity to be able to talk to me even on the phone," News10NBC Chief Investigative Reporter Berkeley Brean said to his executive assistant.
News10NBC was told he wasn't there and was referred back to the county's communication department. So, we went to his boss, the county executive.
We showed Cheryl Dinolfo the county's technology policy which says county employees will not "use county resources for any political or religious cause."
News10NBC Chief Investigative Reporter Berkeley Brean: "Is there any penalty for doing it even if it was a mistake?"
Cheryl Dinolfo, Monroe County executive: "I think it was really an innocent mistake. We have spoken to the individual and will remind all of our employees to make sure they use their personal account to express their personal views."
"Well, we all make mistakes. Let's be honest, it happens," said Mike Johansson, professor of social media at RIT. "The organizations that people respect most on social media are those that are completely transparent including owning mistakes you make."
We checked late Wednesday and the "liked" tweets were removed from the department's twitter page.
We could not determine if the tweets were "liked" when Larry Staub was working. We checked the policies of the city and the Monroe County Sheriff's Office and they ban political tweets too.
Here is Mike Johansson describing a famous mistake on Twitter when the manager of the American Red Cross' Twitter account posted a person tweet on the Red Cross' official page:
