Democratic Delaware Governor Tweeted A Photo Of A Woman In Bondage Gear

Uh?

On Thursday, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell sent out this tweet and deleted it:

The image was a picture of woman in leather straps:

This tweet was then sent apologizing for it:

The governor’s office sent out this statement on the tweet:


“During this morning’s event, a tweet was composed with a link to what was supposed to be a picture that had just been uploaded to the internet of the Governor’s education announcement. While the tweet was being edited, the auto-generated link for the picture was inadvertently altered. As a result, the picture linked to the tweet was a random, unrelated, and inappropriate picture that has been on the internet since 2010, and not the just-uploaded picture of the event. The tweet was deleted and we apologize for the error.”

“The lessons here are not to compose tweets too quickly and there is a lot of odd stuff on the internet. We just wish the accidental link had been a cat video.”

We’re still trying to figure out exactly what that means.
