Here's a Dicktember item for your Likely Explanations bin: A county official in New York knows exactly why he's "following" a porn star on his Twitter account: He was hacked! Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, a Democrat, explained to the New York Post that nefarious hacker activity was the only possible reason his Twitter account shows him following porn actress Belle Knox's twitter stream (link NSFW if you look around for a while. Message: we care).


Bellone, a married father of three who is up for re-election next year, insisted he has no idea how his account came to be linked to Knox.

“County Executive Bellone’s Twitter account, which is operated by his staff, has been hacked and an obscene Twitter account was subsequently followed,” said his spokeswoman, Vanessa Baird-Streeter.

“A formal complaint has been filed with Twitter and to the third-party software used to assist in managing the account. His staff has instituted stricter security protocols to ensure an incident like this does not happen in the future.”

Crisis: averted! Belle Knox, you may recall, is the pseudonym of a Duke University student who briefly made news earlier this year when she acknowledged that she was working in porn to pay for school, which proved that women's studies programs are ruining America and leftist professors should all be taken out and shot. We're betting that further investigation will show that the hackers attacked Bellone's phone back in the spring when Knox was a big story. Those hackers are pretty sneaky that way.

The aide also said that law enforcement had been notified of the obvious security breach. It is not known whether Bellone is the victim of the same hackers who forced Anthony Weiner to send dick pics all over the interwebs, or why hackers would target the account of a county official for the sole purpose of adding one mildly embarrassing "follow."

This much is certain: the man's no Cory Booker, who would have simply laughed it off and then rescued some orphans and kittens from a runaway train.

Yr Dok Zoom can certainly sympathize with Bellone, because we know this sort of thing goes on all the time. We once worked in customer support for DirecTV, and you'd be astonished at the amount of pay-per-view porn that hackers put on customers' satellite boxes.
