Dem Gov: The Internet Made Me Post Risque Pic
Deleware Gov. Jack Markell tweeted a photo of a woman in bondage gear and quickly deleted it.
He then issued an apology tweet in which he misspelled inadvertently.
An inappropriate photo was inadvertantly sent out earlier. We are looking into how this occurred but apologize to anyone who was offended.

Good apology so far! Then his office issued a nonsense statement that basically says “The Internet Made Me Do It!”
“During this morning’s event, a tweet was composed with a link to what was supposed to be a picture that had just been uploaded to the internet of the Governor’s education announcement. While the tweet was being edited, the auto-generated link for the picture was inadvertently altered. As a result, the picture linked to the tweet was a random, unrelated, and inappropriate picture that has been on the internet since 2010, and not the just-uploaded picture of the event. The tweet was deleted and we apologize for the error.”
Buzzfeed reports they’re “still trying to figure out exactly what that means.”
