Mike Kotsopoulos, Boston Globe:

The Cambridge Police Department apologized for a rogue Cambridge police officer who tweeted a profane tirade against Massachusetts congressman Joe Kennedy III on the department’s official Twitter account Sunday.

In response to a WCVB-TV Boston tweet about Kennedy at 2:42 p.m., an officer with access to the department’s Twitter account sent a post that read, “Another liberal (expletive) jerk who just happens to be better then the clown he’s running against. Sad for us.”

The tweet was deleted after the officer realized it wasn’t sent from his own personal account, according to Jeremy Warnick, a Cambridge Police Department spokesman. He didn’t identify the officer who sent the tweet.
