Republican state senate candidate says fake Twitter account was made in his name


CANDIA — A Republican state senate candidate claims someone created a fake Twitter account in his name and posted numerous controversial comments over the past two weeks.

Three-term State Rep. Joseph Duarte, 73, claims he has never used Twitter before and didn't know about the outspoken and objectionable tweets until they were brought to his attention.

“I recently learned that a Twitter account set up on my behalf had been making statements that were offensive to many and do not reflect my personal views or positions on the issues. I was unaware of the nature of these tweets and had the account shut down immediately," Duarte stated.
