Iowa’s Sen. Chuck Grassley keeps a low profile, but he became a Twitter sensation in 2012 with his account of him and Fred hitting and possibly killing a deer on Highway 136. “Assume deer dead” became Grassley’s catch phrase, and the incident even inspired the creation of the haunting Twitter account @GrassleyDeer.
Flash forward to 2015, and Grassley is still tweeting about car/deer collisions, but this time he has an alibi.
Confirmed in 2013: Sen. Grassley writes his own tweets; no anonymous intern behind the keyboard here.
What’s the body count up to now? We still don’t know who hit the deer Grassley found during his morning run on the farm.
