This is not how Republicans should be making the news . . .
Twitter accounts of county GOP, chairman yanked
A good (old fashioned?) cyber-spat between San Diego County’s Republican and Democratic parties has broken out on — where else? — Twitter.
On Wednesday, local Democratic Party Chairman Jess Durfee issued a press release about the social network suspending the accounts of the Republican Party of San Diego County (@SDRepublicans) and that of its chairman, Tony Krvaric (@TonyKrvaric).
Twitter apparently yanked the accounts after county Democrats contacted the company to complain about four handles purporting to represent Democratic San Diego City Council candidates — @SherriLightner, @ToddPhilips, @MatKostrinsky, and @MartiEmerald — in addition to @sddemocrats and its chairman, @JessDurfee.

Still more at OB Rag.
Here’s the SD Dem press release.
My comment: Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
Faking IDs is wrong.
Also, Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.
Parodying the Dems without the taint of deception could have been easily
avoided accomplished by appending the prefix fake- or not- to the noms de Twitter. As in, @NotJessDurfee or @FakeMartiEmerald.
