HOUSE SPEAKER-TWITTER
Ky. House Speaker Stumbo says anti-McConnell posts on his Twitter account the work of hacker

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, April 18, 2014 4:44 PM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


Kentucky's House speaker says someone hacked his Twitter account to post inflammatory comments about U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Democratic Speaker Greg Stumbo took to Twitter to distance himself from the criticism directed at the five-term Republican senator from Kentucky.

Stumbo tweeted he was unaware the anti-McConnell comments had been posted Thursday night until he was notified in a phone call.

The speaker explained that his personal Twitter account had been hacked and he was changing his password.

The anti-McConnell comments were deleted. Stumbo spokesman Brian Wilkerson declined further comment Friday.

Stumbo is a frequent McConnell critic. He also is an outspoken supporter of Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is vying to unseat McConnell in one of the nation's most hotly contested campaigns this year.

McConnell has not publicly commented on the tweets.
