Jeremy Bird, the rock-star Democratic political consultant who was President Obama’s national field director in 2012 before co-founding the 270 Strategies firm, apparently had his Twitter account hacked today.

Among Bird’s current clients is Ro Khanna, the former Obama Administration official who’s challenging Rep. Mike Honda in the 17th Congressional District.
