Political shenanigans on Twitter have gotten plenty of attention lately. But so far, the National Republican Senatorial Committee hasn’t felt much heat over a slew of impostor tweets it blasted out early this week.
The NRSC on Monday posted a series of retweets under the names of prominent Democrats. The posts all referenced a “new” Senate Democratic budget proposal and website — demsplanforamerica.com.
President Obama, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, ex-Democratic Party Chairman Tim Kaine, Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, Montana Sen. Jon Tester and the Senate Democratic caucus as a whole were all quoted as touting this supposed budget.
“Proud of fellow Democrats for launching budget website today!” the “RT” — or retweet — from Tester said.
