CompfortablySmug Apology

ComfortablySmug Apologizes for Misinformation

During Hurricane Sandy, @ComfortablySmug sent out a series of tweets, which received many retweets, that were entirely misinformation. He made claims about the status of power, flooding and other public services. He blatantly abused the anonymity the internet provided. As reported by Buzzfeed.com, this man also sits on the congressional Campaign for Christopher Wright as a consultant as reported by Buzzfeed contributor Jack Stuef.

What @comfortablysmug didn’t count on, apparently, was losing that anonymity. Based on photos he censored and posted to the account but I found unedited elsewhere, @comfortablysmug is Shashank Tripathi, a hedge fund analyst and the campaign manager of Christopher R. Wight, this year’s Republican candidate for the U.S. House from New York’s 12th Congressional District… He’s listed here by a local Republican group coordinating volunteers for a Romney phone bank. He’s 29 years old.

At 7:24 PM on October 30th, he sent out an official apology. He has also resigned from the congressional campaign of Christopher Wright.
