Saint John brokerage mistaken for U.S. senator

"'Senator, you're not doing your job. Pick up your socks.'"

A Saint John insurance brokerage is being inundated with tweets from people convinced they’re tweeting U.S. senator Mitch McConnell.

“We’ll get a comment along the lines of ‘Senator, you’re not doing your job. Pick up your socks,’ to just blathering profanity to just everything in between,” Chris Bourque, president of Mitchell McConnell Insurance, told CBC.

Bourque and his coworkers will try to straighten out the Twitter user, but sometimes people just don’t believe it. ”We call those the tinfoil hat folks,” said Bourque.

Meanwhile, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary has been receiving tweets meant for the Republican National Committee.
