Urbandale, Iowa (CNN) – Michele Bachmann's Iowa campaign manager is "really sorry" for a tweet sent out Tuesday evening by a Bachmann aide claiming there were moving trucks outside Herman Cain's Iowa headquarters.
Bachmann Iowa campaign chairman and state Sen. Kent Sorenson tweeted that info on Twitter, and included a picture.
Turns out, the Cain presidential campaign staff was receiving a shipment of boxes that included about 3,000 yard signs. Cain's Iowa communications director Lisa Lockwood called it "karma."
"People should not jump to conclusions," she said, adding that spirits in the office were "really good."
The tweeted photo has since been taken down.
Asked about the false tweet, Bachmann Iowa campaign manager Eric Woolson took the blame and called it an "unnecessary distraction."
It's "all my fault," Woolson said. "Kent and I were standing outside the headquarters, and I thought he was asking me if he should take a picture of the moving trucks. He was joking around. What he said was, 'Should I take a picture of the moving trucks and tweet it?' And I didn't hear the 'and tweet it.' So he tweeted that out."
"They weren't moving out. So yeah, we created this unnecessary distraction. I apologize for that."
