PHOENIX – Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio issued an official statement late Friday afternoon denying allegations by Meghan McCain, daughter of former presidential candidate John McCain, made on her blog earlier this week, claiming that Arpaio is cyber stalking her on Twitter.
McCain published an article on her blog on Monday complaining about “creepy” politicians cyber stalking her on Twitter. Her article starts off with,
Karl Rove follows me on Twitter. That’s creepy….
I am now being followed by Karl Rove, and my local sheriff, and God knows how many other political pundits. We need to take Twitter back from the creepy people.
I hate to break it to McCain, but Karl Rove follows me on Twitter too, and in the scheme of things, I’m nobody. In fact, Rove follows 40,604 people on Twitter. I know he doesn’t notice my Tweets, and I doubt he (or his ghost-Tweeter) pays much more attention to McCain’s.
