A Democratic candidate for an Arizona state Senate seat said that pornographic images posted on his Twitter account were the result of hacking.

"Darn those Russians!" candidate Steve Weichert said in a tweet in response to the hacking.

The candidate was taking his daughters to school when he found out about the pornographic tweets, Weichert said to ABC15.

"All of a sudden, I just felt my phone blowing up. Somebody sent me a text saying, 'What are you doing?' and I'm like 'What? What are you talking about?'"

"It was a bad Monday," Weichert said.

Later, Weichert sent follow-up tweets, saying that he was joking about Russians being involved in the hack.

He also compared the porn tweets to a scene from "I Love Lucy."
