A virtual meeting of Indiana’s state election commission conducted via the conferencing tool “Zoom” was reportedly hacked on Friday by an intruder who posted a pornographic video to the discussion.

The meeting resumed after the racy interlude, an ABC affiliate first reported.

“Holy moly. Indiana Election Commission meeting had just started on Zoom when someone switched video to them masturbating,” Mary Beth Schneider, an editor for TheStateHouseFile.com, tweeted. “My eyes! My eyes!”

“It was member of public who had joined Zoom meeting & turned on their video,” Schneider clarified.

The tweet prompted a slew of sexual innuendos.

One person jokingly responded, “That was the Indiana Erection Commission ma’am.”

“Meeting have a happy ending?” another person quipped.

The commission was discussing emergency measures for the rescheduled primary election, ABC’s local WPTA 21 said.

“Zoom” is one of several conferencing programs that has been used extensively to facilitate meetings during social distancing.

“Zoom bombing” — or unexpected intrusions into the sessions — prompted an FBI warning recently. The agency noted incidents in which individuals have displayed hate symbols or shouted profanities during sessions, such as virtual classrooms for school children.
