The Grand Forks office of the National Weather Service is apologizing after a political tweet was sent out from the office's Twitter account.
It's unclear what the tweet was in response to since it was quickly deleted, but it was aimed at former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
"Speak to the Justice System's handling of Clinton/Obama et al," said the tweet posted at 11:53 a.m. Wednesday. "These people are inconsequential vestiges. You phony."
North Dakota-based blogger Rob Port posted a screenshot of the tweet.
The weather service followed up with an apology to Port, saying an employee thought they were tweeting from a personal account when in reality they had failed to log out of the NWS Grand Forks account.
The Grand Forks office of the NWS provides forecast details for a large area of northwest Minnesota.
It's also worth noting that the NWS Grand Forks is an entity of the federal government.
