Meg Whitman's Camp Accidentally Tweets Link to Man in Pink Tutu
KTLA ^ | October 20, 2010

Posted on 10/20/2010 1:34:57 PM PDT by calcowgirl

The California gubernatorial candidate's spokeswoman, Sarah Pompei, sent a link to an endorsement from the Deputy Sheriffs' Association of San Diego County. Or so she thought.

Her tweet had read: "SD Cnty Sheriff Assoc says @Whitman2010 4 gov! RT: @Murphy4MegNews: CA Cops get it: Jerry Brown is too soft on crime." The tweet also included a link: http://bit.ly/bNCAV.

Instead, the link directed traffic to a YouTube video of a man in a pink tutu, playing a guitar.

The link was apparently missing a very critical letter "r."

When contacted about the mistake, Pompei reportedly responded with a laugh and simply said, "Oopsie."

This will increase Whitman’s “hip” factor in CA.

Good job!

The garter belt is a nice touch.

I say Whitman did this on purpose to gain votes in CA, [I’m in LA]

The guy has a slew of videos on youtube and quite a following, with more than 10000 subscribers:

I watched a few: Little Bo Peep is my favorite: http://www.youtube.com/user/hjfreaks#p/u/8/HGeoHXnrZt4

The Whitman camp couldn’t have made a more newsmaking tweet if they tried. LOL

And he’s probably gotten more hits today than ever and is wondering what the heck is going on?

Calcowgirl just pointed out a good vid of his I am watching ... Little Bo Peep:

http://www.youtube.com/user/hjfreaks#p/u/8/HGeoHXnrZt4

Now that Whitman has endorsed him ...

All his videos are pretty good. Amazing hands.
I think he must do the dress-up thing as a gag to get more traffic?

Yeah, I think so too. A gimmick.

Don’t know where you are in Ca. But K-Town in LA is pretty cool.

I’m on the coast - about 20 miles from K-town.
But I used to often travel that route (Olympic) from Century City to Staples for Lakers games.
