Ambito Financiero, a local daily friendly with the administration, was hacked this evening and proceeded to tweet that Victory Front (FpV) presidential candidate and front-runner Daniel Scioli would drop out of the election in the case of a runoff. The hackers managed to fit in a quick joke (and in poor taste) regarding Scioli’s amputated arm.

The Twitter account was exposed as being hacked and the tweets as false by the handle of the perpetrator, “Gizmolesta.”
