Actually, no. Rep. Steven Smith isn’t an elected official, nor does the 15th congressional district he claims to represent exist. The Twitter account has managed to fool quite a few, including “Daily Show” co-creator Lizz Winstead. How could she not respond to this reply?

[Update]

The tweet calling “Rep. Steven Smith” an elected official is gone, but not forgotten. Doesn’t Ms. Winstead know by now that Twitchy is forever?
