Someone has hacked the Twitter account of Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley and has sent messages to his nearly 34,000 followers. The messages sent Monday mocked Grassley and mentioned measures in Congress dealing with Internet piracy.
Grassley's spokeswoman Jill Kozeny says in an email that his office is "working to manage it."
The Internet piracy bill has been heatedly debated in the Senate. Grassley was among senators who changed his stand on the measure and opposed it after an outpouring of online opposition to tinkering with Internet freedoms.
