Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler feels my pain.
I checked my phone one night and discovered I had a message from a reporter asking if he could get a copy of the letter the secretary of state had sent to the Jefferson County clerk regarding its recall election.
“Yes,” I responded, and then I sent another message, “Let me know if you get it.”
Pretty soon I started seeing tweets making fun of my seemingly random messages. But I texted the reporter, I thought. Only I hadn’t. I was responding to a direct message. And when I explained that on Twitter, the hilarious @MissingPundit posted this gem:
“The old George Brauchler defense. Likely story.”
“I thought that was brilliant,” Brauchler said.
