You might think I’m just trying to milk the following news item, that there’s no whey it curd be real, but you couldn’t be more Rondo, Jack.
A Republican aide who sent a press release supporting the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was shocked to receive an email back from the account of the specialty cheese editor of the Cheese Reporter newspaper about the possibility of her being raped.
That’s according to National Republican Congressional Committee spokeswoman Carly Atchison:
I wrote a release advocating for legislation protecting babies surviving a botched abortion. This is how one associate editor chose to respond: pic.twitter.com/ALKbMMldkQ

I suppose it’s better to say you hope such a thing doesn’t happen. Right?
I had not heard of this publication, but apparently Cheese Reporter is a real thing. Why would one of their employees say something like that?
Now we know what happened, because the situation has been defused with all the skill and aplomb you’d expect from a dairy-oriented news source:
Recently, one of our employee's email was hacked and deplorable messages were transmitted. Cheese Reporter and the employee ask for your understanding during this difficult time and in no way does Cheese Reporter or the employee condone or endorse any of these hacked messages.

If hackers are now targeting cheese-industry newsletters, who among us is safe?
This is very bad, and I vow to stand with my compatriots at Cheese Reporter. This crime cannot go unpunished. We must not rest until these hackers are found. They must be brought to Gjetost!
