The stuff was just that good – you know, you read a few tweets from CrazyKhazei, and you were like, “wow, who is this mastermind? The stuff is laugh-out-loud hilarious, yet also devastating. I sure wish I could write like that.”
In an email late today, Fehrnstrom admitted he was the person behind the “CrazyKhazei” tweets – but pointedly did no[t] apologize for them.
“It was my Twitter acccount,” the aide said in an email to the Globe. “Sometimes we take our politics too seriously and this was my way of lightening things up. As they say in politics, if you can’t stand the tweet, get out of the kitchen.” Neither Brown’s campaign manager nor his US Senate communications director responded to a request for comment on Fehrnstrom’s actions.
Of course, this explanation – that it was just a little diversion that Fehrnstrom undertook for a few yuks – beggars belief. Fehrnstrom, whatever else he may be, is a professional, and it’s exceedingly difficult to imagine that he was operating a Twitter account in which he was impersonating one of his star client’s potential opponents and mocking others of them without some sort of sanction from the Brown campaign.
So the question now becomes: WHAT DID SCOTT BROWN KNOW, AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT?? The Brown campaign can’t clam up forever about this. Sooner or later, they, as well as Team Romney, will have to offer some comment on Fehrnstrom’s dark deeds.
UPDATE: Hey, we’re on the teevee! 🙂
