Since being indicted last week on charges of perjury and obstruction, among other felonies, Roger Clemens has been feverishly denying the allegations that he ever used performance-enhancing drugs and especially that he lied to Congress. And it appears that he’s using the best PR team that money can buy, because he’s defending himself via Twitter. By making fun of a reporter. To his niece.
The man who once inexplicably threw a shattered bat at Mike Piazza has been spending the past few days thanking his 9,200+ followers for supporting him, and again denying any wrongdoing. But his last three Tweets have caught the attention of the Interwebs and especially U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton, who has told everyone involved in the federal case – mainly Clemens – to shut the fudge up by issuing a gag order to prevent the tainting of a jury pool. I tainted a jury pool once. Whatever, they shouldn’t have fallen asleep on my couch.
Hey Roger, what’s the best way to gain public support and rebuild your image?
