Twitter reaction to ‘Delauter-gate’
Published 12:33 pm Wednesday, January 7, 2015
A Maryland county councilman’s attempt to keep his name out of the paper backfired and generated a storm of ridicule on Twitter. Here is a sampling, including the reporter’s thank-you to her followers.
Appreciate all the love today, Twitterverse. Thanks to you, I type the name of #KirbyDelauter without any fear tonight 😉

We must trick #KirbyDelauter into saying his name backwards…that's the only way to send him back to the 5th Dimension! #RetualedYbrik

They say if you repeat #KirbyDelauter in front of a mirror three times, his attorney appears and tells you to stop. http://t.co/PsTKaplIcS

If we can't use #KirbyDelauter's name, maybe we can call him Kim-Jong Delauter. They have the same views regarding freedom of the press.

Need to introduce new phrases, like: “you totally Kirby-Delautered that” for the law of unintended consequences. #KirbyDelauter

Things like this are why I am generally skeptical of anyone who wants to devolve power back to local governments. #KirbyDelauter

#KirbyDelauter is becoming more famous trying to evade fame than many who pursue could ever hope to be. Delauter will soon be verb.
