Vicki Tiahrt a 'loose cannon' on Twitter

Vicki Tiahrt, wife of Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard, "continues to be something of a loose cannon on Twitter," reported the Hill. The congressional newspaper noted that she has tweeted derisively about Republican Sens. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Jim DeMint of South Carolina, John McCain of Arizona and John Thune of South Dakota — all of whom could be her husband's colleagues if he wins his race for the U.S. Senate next year. She also disparaged Club for Growth, a fiscally conservative group that recently gave Todd Tiahrt a low 29 percent rating on the organization's RePORK Card (and gave Tiahrt's GOP opponent, Rep. Jerry Moran, R-Hays, a high 96 percent ranking).
