The Globe reports that late yesterday, Mayor Menino appeared to make a startling confession on Twitter:
Ballot 799 in North End. Almost skipped this one for margs but civic duty won. #toohottovote #masen.
It was accompanied by a photo of a bright-red nail atop an "I Voted" sticker.
Political cognoscenti, of course, promptly suspected an errant tweet from one of the City Hall minions who post under the mayor's name - everybody knows he lives in Hyde Park. Sure enough, not long after, hizzona (or a chastened social-media minion) tweeted:
Though I love the red nail polish & the civic engagement, I voted in Hyde Park today. Earlier tweet not my own. #itsnevertoohottovote
In the words of another Massachusetts politician: Bqhatevwr.
