Mock Twitter accounts are nothing new, but it's not always clear who is behind them. The liberal blog BlueMassGroup has a theory about who is running @CrazyKhazei, an account that, well, makes fun of Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Alan Khazei.
The description on @CrazyKhazei's Twitter page: "I'm a community organizer. I got crushed by Martha Coakley in the 2009 US Senate primary. I'm running because we need more Democrats in the MA delegation."
So, you get the idea.
A Bay State Democrat spotted a curious Tuesday tweet from Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., adviser Eric Fehrnstrom that has since been deleted. "I'm excited to announce that Cindy Creem is the newest hire at my charity, Be the Change #mapoli #masen," Fehrnstorm tweeted. BlueMassGroup has a screenshot of the tweet. It's strange, because Creem is a Democratic state senator who just announced her support for Khazei.
Fehrnstrom didn't immediately respond to a request for comment from Hotline On Call. Ben Smith notes the website crazykhazei.com is registered to Brown's new media consultant.
For the record, @CrazyKhazei's latest tweet at the time of this posting: "I just googled @ericfehrn and that guy is a loser."
