The short odds say that there is no question that whatever the truth is will be found out.v

Even shorter odds say that if it is found to be a nefarious action that the original suspicion will stay alive in the Wingoshere.

Wait 6 months and bring him up in the church social hall or your favorite watering hole.

Its really only possible 2 ways, a person sitting at the computer, or some one remotely gets control of his computer.

Is someone reporting that there was anything on any devices.

It appears to have been a phishing incident. Mistake was responding/reacting. 

Lots of people do.

Re: Much better Twitter thread

It would freak me out- maybe our resident genius dox/stalker could arrange that.

There was a story a while back where a guy had a swat team break down his door and cuff him, face down on the floor while hauling off his electronics. Turned out that he'd left his wifi router open and somebody was squatting and using it to download and send kiddie porn (what I'd do if I was a criminal, I guess).

Kinda fascinating the extent to which Puke gets under these guys' skins. Because he's been more right than 'ol Friedrich and Ludwig, I guess.
