Eric Garcetti Has a Twitter Doppelgänger

L.A. Councilman Eric Garcetti has a pretty funny Twitter impostor. It might not be up to Ruth Bourdain standards, but it’s not “Santorum” either. Garcetti’s staff seems to be taking the whole thing in stride. “The tweets are harmless,”  Garcetti spokesman Yusef Robb told the LA Times. “But we would hope people follow the authentic Eric Garcetti, so they’re getting accurate and helpful information.”

Meanwhile, @Eric_Garcetti, the impostor account, seems to be enjoying the attention he’s getting from the Times and other media outlets.
