Unconfirmed rumor: Robbers posing as Con Edison workers

We have our doubts about this one, but the rumor is spreading like wildfire on Twitter:

Con Edison posted this to its Twitter page:

  • Right Wired

    They are just Democrats campaigning – although I know it’s very easy to mistake them for thieves.

    I was just wondering about this. In the South, we are used to seeing utility trucks from many states around after a natural disaster. I was wondering of Cuomo or Christie had asked local criminals to refrain from killing the out of state workers while they were assisting in power restoration.

    Where did they get the Con Ed uniforms? Any workers reported missing?
