Candidate Neil Combee on fake tweets: ‘Wingnutness’ is involved

The account has the handle @neilcombee, formerly Combee’s state House account. But after Combee complained to Twitter, the account name was changed to Fake Real Neil Combee.

A fake Twitter account set up in the name of Congressional District 15 candidate Neil Combee is tweeting out scurrilous right-wing material.

The account has the handle @neilcombee, formerly Combee's state House account. But after Combee complained to Twitter, the account name was changed to Fake Real Neil Combee, and a message on its page calls it a parody account, saying, "all tweets are fake."

The owner didn't respond to a tweet seeking comment.

One recent tweet describes President Barack Obama as "former muslim (and not born in the US and #isis founder)" who "got a #noblepeaceprize for being elected black" and says Donald Trump deserves "a noble prize."

"I have no idea who it is," said Combee, whose real account is @realNeilCombee. "I don't know if it's a rightwing nut or a leftwing nut, but I know there's some wingnutness involved."

A survey by StPetePolls showed Dover Rep. Ross Spano leading Combee 29-23 percent in the GOP primary for the seat U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross is leaving, with a third undecided and four other candidates receiving under 5 percent.
