As we previously noted, the October 15th presidential debate was scheduled to be moderated by Steve Scully, a former intern for Vice-President Joe Biden and a self proclaimed member of the “never Trump” resistance group.
Yesterday the senior political editor for CSPAN, Steve Scully, accidentally tweeted a public question to anti-Trump resistance member Anthony Scaramucci. It appears the public tweet was a mistake during a private DM (direct message) conversation.
However, after Mr. Scully outed himself as a coordinating member of the resistance; and subsequently destroying the credibility of himself, his organization and the debate commission; urgent damage control was needed. Today, Scully, C-SPAN and the Presidential Debate Commission are now claiming Scully’s twitter account was “hacked“.
WASHINGTON DC – C-SPAN host Steve Scully believes his Twitter account was hacked, the network announced in a statement Friday, in the aftermath of a tweet sent from his account to former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci that raised questions of impartiality.
Scully “did not originate the tweet,” C-SPAN claimed, adding that the Commission on Presidential Debates was investigating the incident “with the help of authorities,” who were unidentified. Scully himself did not immediately comment.
Scully had been selected to host the second presidential debate, although the status of all future 2020 debates has been unclear. (more)
Perhaps the FBI will send 13 agents to help C-SPAN clean up this mess.
