Jonathan Capehart Very Upset With Fake Congressman


In a post on the Washington Post’s website last night, editorial writer Jonathan Capehart took California congressman Jack Kimble to task for claiming, on Twitter, that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan didn’t cost any money under President Bush — a “stunning bit of fiscal ignorance,” Capehart wrote. Which is true — that would be a stunning bit of fiscal ignorance. But that wasn’t Congressman Jack Kimble’s real Twitter account, as Congressman Jack Kimble is not a real person. Take heart, Capehart — you weren’t the first. [NYO]
