Rahm Offers Twitter Bounty

Rahm Emanuel would like some words with his Twitter impersonator—but maybe not the words you would expect. The Chicago mayoral candidate says he’s just entertained by a series of tweets that purport to be from “@MayorEmanuel,” chronicling his campaign in humorous and—in accordance with Emanuel’s reputation for foul language—profane terms. Emanuel told a Chicago radio station that the feed, which has more followers than his own official feed, is often mistaken for the genuine article. If the mystery tweeter reveals himself, Emanuel says he’ll give between $2,500 and $5,000 to the charity of their choice.
