Iowa Senator Charles Grassley says he was injured when the wind blew a brush fire out of control on his farm near New Hartford in northeastern Iowa. How did we find out? From the Twittering senator, of course. Grassley sent out this “tweet” to followers:

Work on farm Fri. Burning piles of brush WindyFire got out of control. Thank God for good naber He help get undr control PantsBurnLegWound

Tonight, Communications Director Beth Levine told me the senator suffered a small burn on his leg from the fire. And he has “a little bandage” on it. She said he didn’t go to the doctor. The senator’s tweets sure must make his communication staff’s lives interesting:)
