Eric Reif, an employee of the Democratic National Committee, apparently has too much time on his hands or too little of a life outside of work.
He posted a job listing on his Twitter account that for some bizarre reason spells out the word “BENGHAZI” — or at least most of it. He ran out of characters or interest (or both) before he found a use for the Z and I.
Weasel Zippers came to the conclusion that “Reif thought it would be absolutely hilarious … to joke about four Americans being slaughtered in Benghazi by Islamic terrorists,” but it is frankly unclear what, if anything, he had in mind. Admittedly, it’s odd to focus on a name that has such negative connotations, especially for the Democratic Party, whose presumptive candidate for president in 2016 was Secretary of State when the massacre of U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three staff members occurred.
Reif has since deleted the tweet. Now if he deleted himself from Twitter, we’d really be getting somewhere.
