Columbia prof says he’s behind @MayorEmanuel

Dan Sinker, a journalism teacher at Columbia College, says he was behind the fictitious Twitter account “@MayorEmanuel,” a foul-mouthed double of the real candidate and mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel.

Sinker tells the Atlantic magazine his punk rock attitude and deep interest in Chicago politics led him to take on Emanuel’s persona.
