A tweet from Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s verified account Sunday night included a disparaging image of the Democratic district attorney who is at the center of his criminal indictment on charges of abuse of power.
The tweet was later deleted, followed by another from Perry’s account that disavowed the post.
“A tweet just went out from my account that was unauthorized. I do not condone the tweet and I have taken it down,” the later post said.
Perry aides did not immediately return messages seeking comment. Although the tweets were sent from Perry’s verified account, it was unclear who does the actual posting for the feed.
