Ex-Mayor Mark Funkhouser apparently doesn't know his Twitter account has been hacked

If you don't follow former Mayor Mark Funkhouser's Twitter handle — @MayorFunk — nobody would blame you. After all, the first Kansas City mayor since the 1920s to not survive a primary to run for re-election, blew town for D.C. last year.

From time to time, Funk had been tweeting from his old account. It was mostly uninteresting stuff directed at specific followers. Occasionally, it was things that were clearly intended to be innocuous private messages. But four days ago, his account makes it appear that the former mayor has become obsessed with helping his followers lose a few pounds by clicking links to websites with names like Newsbloggerz.com and Onlinemediaz.com.

A hacked account is annoying for sure, but Funk apparently has yet to notice that his tweets have gone rogue. Feel free to open a betting pool in the comments for when Funk gets wise. See all the hacked tweets after the jump.
