FAKE TWITTER ACCOUNT LEADS TO SECRET SERVICE INTERVIEW
AHEAD OF CLINTON VISIT
Earlier this evening, Buncombe County GOP Chair Chad Nesbitt was interviewed by the U.S. Secret Service and the Asheville Police Department. Per the discussion, the contact was initiated in anticipation of former President Bill Clinton's Thursday visit to Asheville.
The contact was cordial, with the Chair assuring the Secret Service and APD that he nor anyone he knows represents a physical threat to Clinton. "I think he's a scoundrel, but I am delighted that the Democratic power structure thinks he's the proper voice to represent their Party's understanding of our mountain values," said Nesbitt. "I certainly wish him no physical harm, in fact I am delighted he is coming - it could only be better if Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid were coming to prop up Shuler. He and his party evidently need a nurse, and we all know that Clinton is good at that. The only thing Mr. Clinton has to fear from me is illumination of his credentials as an unprincipled person and fast talking advocate for the left's socialistic message of "something for nothing".
"Per discussion with the agent and officer who met with me, their concerns originated with comments on a Twitter account under my name," said Nesbitt. "I do not have and have never had a Twitter account. I reported this false account several weeks ago to the Buncombe County Sheriff's Department. They consulted with Buncombe County District Attorney Ron Moore, who I understand refused to take action. Per that lack of accountability, this situation reached a point of seriousness requiring Secret Service action. I hope the Buncombe County Sheriff Department and Mr. Moore will now realize the seriousness of this matter and act on my complaint. I will, again, make a formal request for action."
"The law enforcement officers I met with were respectful and indicated their concerns had been addressed," noted Nesbitt. "I appreciate the Secret Service doing their job to protect our former President. I am doing mine in turning on the lights."

Personally, I think the Secret Service must be hiring retarded people if they didn't know that the twitter account was fake. When I say retarded, I mean that I think they scored lower than Congressman Shuler did on his Wonderlic. This indeed causes me to fear for the safety of our former Presidents.
Take a look at the fake twitter account before it's creators take it down.
