Story here. Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, posts offensive Tweet, his explanation and that of his office fail to match.
The bottom line here is that there are at least two possibilities, none of them flattering to Sid Miller:
1. He posted the tweet. If that is true, he is a primo-grade classless dick
2. One of his staff is acting like a juvenile dick. He presumably hired them, so either he hired the wrong people, or he failed to explain that he did not want them to act like juvenile dicks
If you believe Miller’s own tweet from 4 days ago, the answer is (1).

UPDATE – it seems that Miller has described himself in his Twitter bio as Deplorable. Well, I guess he felt he had to live down to the description…
I find @MillerForTexas to be truly what he says:
I doubt that he can still rope a calf, however… pic.twitter.com/FTgNWjzgsn
