Delaware Governor Tweets Picture Of Hot Chick In Bondage Gear, Or Did He?

I think it’s about time we got every politician off of Twitter, and social media in general. First we had Anthony Weiner, that pornstar that tweeted a picture of a Congressional Aide’s dong , even Amazon’s “Alpha House” got in on the fun, when one of the Senator’s aides tweeted a picture of his junk on the Senator’s account that he intended for the senator’s daughter. Nothing good has ever come from mixing politics and Twitter. Ever.

But this time, things may not be all as they seem. Delaware Governor Jack Markell made a hasty apology after sending out a picture of a hot chick in bondage gear from his official Twitter account yesterday. No word on who the woman is, but by god did she look kinky.

They quickly deleted the tweet and offered an apology.

The Governor’s office released a statement saying that “the auto-generated link for the picture was inadvertently altered” when composing the Tweet, and they apologized for sending out an inappropriate picture, saying they wished “the accidental link had been a cat video” instead.

However, a little digging will show you that this wasn’t the Governor’s fault at all. An eagle-eyed Twitter user by the handle of @Webster noticed the issue…the link the Governor’s office had intended to send was a SINGLE letter off from the image of the scantily-clad woman, a picture that had been on that image server since 2010.

He also urged that they leave the woman alone, who was later discovered to be an Estonian model named Darja, who tweets under the handle @preciouslittle. She was none too pleased at the accusations.

So there you go. For once, this was a social media political scandal that wasn’t; it was not the fault of the person who tweeted it, the person who runs the account, or the Politician himself, just an honest, careless mistake. Let’s learn to figure out all the facts before we judge someone next time, okay?

But seriously, Politicians, just stay the fuck off of social media. It’s not worth it!
