Man what a weird story. So this guy was accused of calling Obama’s mom obscene names on the Disqus comment platform with a sock puppet account. And CNN caught him.
And now he’s resigned.
William C. Bradford, a Trump administration appointee who heads the Energy Department’s Office of Indian Energy, resigned Thursday after claiming this week inflammatory comments that appeared to have been made by him online were the result of hacking.
“William Bradford tendered his resignation this afternoon and is no longer with the Department of Energy,” said DOE spokesperson Shaylyn Hynes.
And get this – he pulled a weiner!!! No, not that, an Anthony Weiner – he said he was hacked instead of owning up to his actions…
CNN’s KFile reported this week on evidence that suggested that Bradford made inflammatory comments through an account on the online commenting service Disqus. In response to the story, Bradford told CNN’s KFile that he couldn’t comment “on an ongoing federal investigation into multiple cyber attacks and Internet crimes committed against me over the past several years, to include email intrusions, hacking, and impostors in social media.”
The account that appeared to be Bradford questioned Obama’s birth certificate and called the former president’s mother “a fourth-rate p&*n actress and [email protected]!re.”
On Wednesday, Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden sent letters to the FBI and the DOE requesting more information about Bradford’s claim that he was hacked.
WHAT HAPPENED TO FREE SPEECH IN MERICA, DAMMIT?!?! I hope Trump pardons this patriot!!!
Just kidding, that’s awful. C’mon people.
