NASA JPL Twitter Account Retweets Anti-Romney Material

Outline
Messages circulating via social media claim that a number of anti-Romney messages were recently retweeted via the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Twitter account.



Analysis
The claims in the messages are true. A report about the incident on on Twitchy.com notes:

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.

NASA JPL later posted the following tweet explaining the issue:

INASA Explains Romney Retweets

NASA has apparently not publicly identified the person responsible for the recalcitrant rewteeting.
