The RNC's Official Website Was Accidentally Linked To A Very NSFW Twitter Account For Months ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Twitter is having a laugh at the expense of the Maryland Republican party and the RNC right now. Apparently, the Maryland party used to use the Twitter handle "mdreps." When it abandoned the handle in favor of the newer "mdgop" nobody thought to inform the RNC. Cue the porn-related-hilarity.


The old Twitter handle was picked up by "Sexy Car Babes" and the account was filled with NSFW images and ads for live sex chats. While the Maryland site had all of the correct linking and information, anyone using the RNC website and trying to use their links to get to the Maryland GOP Twitter account was met with this.

We can't show you any lower, but you get the point.

The pinned tweet is an image for "Bonga Cams" and appears to show a woman pleasuring herself behind the screen of a laptop computer. We're guessing that's probably not what the RNC had in mind, considering it refers to itself as the "family values" party. Alas, it sat there unchanged for eight. whole. months.

Maryland Republican Party Executive Director Patrick O'Keefe told a media outlet, "We did not tell them.We updated it on our website and all our entities then, though. Not notifying the RNC back in February was just an oversight." They also said that Twitter had offered to "freeze" the account so nobody else could take over, but clearly that didn't happen.

Clearly.

Twitter cannot stop laughing about this.









The RNC appears to link to the correct Twitter accounts now, but the old account has been seeing a lot of ... um ... action.
