Why Are Members of Congress Following a Salacious Twitter Feed?

Why would several members of Congress line up behind what looks to be a porn-intensive Twitter feed? It might have something to do with a concerned Scotsman, a former Cabinet secretary and a sick little girl from Pennsylvania.

All of which should come as a relief to the stupefied reader who begged HOH for clarification (“Why Tim Scott? Why?” the baffled fan wrote in an email.) about the seemingly incongruous relationship between the conservative South Carolina senator and the eyebrow-raising social media account.

More importantly, HOH discovered Scott isn’t the only politico who tuned into the erratic, often one-way conversation.
