@twitchy check out @nasajpl twitter. They are re-tweeting anti-Romney tweets.

On Wednesday night, someone took over the government-operated NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Twitter account and turned it into a Cher-like social media cesspool for anti-Romney rants and raves. Followers immediately wondered why their tax dollars were being used to subsidize lunatic partisan messages and disseminate Soros-sponsored hit pieces on Republicans.

Why is @nasajpl shilling for Obama! This is a government agency!!

@nasajpl Why are you re-tweeing anti-Romney Tweets?

— Frunkis (@navyvetpc6) October 18, 2012

@nasajpl I wonder why a gov’t agency is retweeting an article from thinkprogress knocking Romney?Please keep the politics out of science.

— Andrew Brignac (@abrignac) October 18, 2012

Hah. Someone running @nasajpl accidentally retweeted a ThinkProgress link.

The guilty tweeter tried to cover his/her tracks:

Huh, this is interesting. I could have sworn I saw @nasajpl retweeting some political stuff…but it appears to be gone now. I wonder why…

But quick-acting Twitchy readers captured some screen shots of the @NASAJPL retweets:

Looks like @nasajpl took these RT’s down: twitter.com/Hermione_Hero/…

— Mark E. DeLafayette (@Hermione_Hero) October 18, 2012

Yet more @nasajpl RT’s just removed: @drudge @michellemalkin @twitchyteam twitter.com/Hermione_Hero/…

Why is NASAJPL participating in the political process? (check RTs) @nasa @nasajpl @nsf @cia @gretawire

— Aelyt (@AeroFlyAelyt) October 18, 2012

At 1:22am, @NASAJPL disavowed the political tweets, but did not identify the culprit or mention any consequences.

@nasajpl Was waiting for that.

@nasajplhaha. thought that was odd. But who is @marscuriosity voting for?

— Will Durgin (@WDurgin) October 18, 2012

@twitchyteam My sister Lisa works for JPL. If there are any other (R)’s, they’re good at hiding under their desks, w/duct-taped mouths.

— ChristineHilzer (@chilzer) October 18, 2012

@nasajpl I kind of wondered about that……..

— scott carson (@scottcarson1957) October 18, 2012

@nasajpl oh someone is getting fired. Boom

— Faceman5050 (@faceman5050) October 18, 2012

We’ll see. Safe to say, the NASA employee tweeting from the far-left corners of outer space has come back down to Earth.
