Ohio congressman's Twitter account hacked



Published: Thu, July 14, 2011 @ 3:13 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A hacker accessed the Twitter account of a central Ohio congressman, replacing his profile picture with a digitally manipulated image of a naked man and posting nonsensical messages.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the material was quickly removed Wednesday night from the account of U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson of Marietta. Johnson’s staff posted a message saying the account had been hacked and apologizing for anything offensive.

Johnson spokeswoman Jessica Towhey says the office is working with Capitol Police, House security and Twitter to determine what happened.

Forty-one-year-old Kevin Holtsberry of Columbus tells The Dispatch he noticed the new “bizarre” photo at about 10 p.m. and notified Johnson’s office via Twitter.
