Is Washington DC’s Attorney General tweeting about the David Gregory case?

Irvin B. Nathan, the Attorney General of Washington DC, recently announced that David Gregory will not face prosecution for waving a banned high-capacity magazine during a broadcast of “Meet the Press.”

Someone who claims to be Nathan began tweeting earlier today:

And please not that @davidgregory has been warned about the consequences if he were to do this again. apps.washingtonpost.com/g/documents/lo… @noltenc

@tsmck1000 There aren’t 2 sets. We exercised prosecutorial discretion as we do in all cases. We lack manpower to bring every case to trial.

@jcinqc I’m sorry you feel this way, but prosecutorial discretion is a necessary part of the legal system.

Most of the tweets sound real, and so far nobody has questioned the legitimacy of the account.

We have our doubts.

To our ears, this tweet sounds like an attempt at humor (and a pretty good one at that):

.@davidgregory is facing consequences. Please read our sternly worded letter informing him this a one-time exception. apps.washingtonpost.com/g/documents/lo…

— Irvin B Nathan (@IrvinBNathan) January 13, 2013

The account is unverified and is brand new. Twitchy verdict: It’s probably a fake.

But, hey, we could be wrong.
