Resignation Over Offensive Tweets


Dimitris Kammenos, a politician for the Independent Greeks, has resigned his new position as a deputy minister after just 12 hours. His appointment had been met with utter dismay on Twitter where he was fairly well-known for his outrageous tweets.

Kammenos has since deleted his Twitter account and suggested that he had been hacked! Always the first response by people who are caught out.
