NBC NATIONAL NEWS — An Iowa high school principal isn't laughing at the fake Twitter account set up under his name.
The account features a picture of hitler and the tweets are littered with inappropriate, sexually violent anti-semitic remarks.
Jim Mollison's wife and children are Jewish.
"Being in my role as principal, I know what I signed up for. Attacking my family seems a little lower than what I would expect," Mollison says.
Students say the twitter account is their way of expressing discontentment with the school's administration.
While he's in the charge of the building, there may not be anything Principal Mollison can do about the Twitter account.
West Des Moines School District does not have disciplinary policy when it comes to Twitter, so while the administration comes up with one, the insulting tweets continue.
