Nick Rushton, the Conservative leader of Leicestershire County Council, has just issued the following statement:
“My Twitter account was hacked by someone with malicious intent. Whoever has done this changed my password, as I was unable to log onto it for a considerable period of time. I have reset my account and passwords. I take this kind of issue very seriously and have reported it to the police.”It comes after a Guido Fawkes post that showed Nick Rushton's Twitter account was following a number of "risque" accounts.
You can see some of them in the image above, which I have shamelessly stolen from Guido's blog.
It is obvious that the hacker had malicious intent. As well as following Huge Boob Pics and ILikeBootyDaily, he followed Market Harborough Conservatives.
Later. I have been blocked!
