Skip to comments.Steve Scully has history of blaming 'hackers' for posts made on his Twitter account: The C-SPAN host's previous hacking claims date back to 2012 and 2013

Presidential debate moderator Steve Scully claimed through a statement by C-SPAN Friday that he believed his Twitter account was "hacked" after a tweet showing him reaching out to outspoken Trump foe Anthony Scaramucci went viral Thursday night.
However, resurfaced tweets show that Scully has a history of blaming hackers for his social media posts.
The "Washington Journal" host appeared to reach out to the former White House communications director, who has become a vocal supporter of Joe Biden, in the now-deleted tweet that read: "@Scaramucci should I respond to trump."
Both the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) and C-SPAN have issued statements claiming Scully didn't actually send that tweet.
However, critics who remain skeptical of Scully's "hack" claim dug up old tweets showing him blaming hackers for other tweets that were made on his account.
In May 2012, Scully appeared apologetic about tweets that were made about weight loss.
"I apologize for Saturday's tweets regarding weight loss, etc. I still have my day job at C-SPAN...darn those hackers. Have a great Sunday," Scully wrote.
In another tweet from March 2013, Scully apologizes for posts that were sent by his Twitter account, though it is unclear what the content was in those tweets written by alleged hackers.

Next time we will hold a fair debate. Trust us.
You would think that with those two hacking episodes, Scully would have enabled 2FA.
Bet he has used the ‘The dog ate my homework.” a few times too.
After being hacked twice you would think he’d get a difficult password to hack.
Scully IS a hack.
Probably the Russians.
Who knew that little boy was such a LYING SCUM DEMOCRAT!!!
He was NOT HACKED!! He IS the HACK!
should get OAN to do the debate instead
First this and now it turns out the chairman of the debate commission has ties to the dossier. The stench of the DC swamp can be smelled at the South Pole. Not one word of any of it will be found in the MSM.
Well, who would have guessed that the PDC was another deep state organ that has been exposed and met its demise.
Yeah, Steve Scummy We believe you. And someone hacked my FR account to post this (an only this) too!
I read his book (a friend loaned and insisted). Takeaway: the man is very dumb.
It was the other Scully. You know. The one that appears at night when no one is looking and takes control of Scully’s body and makes it do unmentionable things.
You mean that “changeme” isn’t a good password?
Scully’s evil twin, Scummy did it.
Scully fits right in with the vile Dims.
And some time ago when I watched him, I thought he looked like a wide-eyed Alfred E Newman, but finding out he is a Leftie, it all makes sense.
