The Rahm Emanuel impersonator who garnered more Twitter followers than the real Rahm Emanuel has come forth to The Atlantic.

After months of speculation, Dan Sinker, founder of now-defunct magazine Punk Planet, has revealed himself as the man behind the expletive-fueled Twitter account.

Sinker kept his identity a secret as he followed Rahm Emanuel throughout his campaign for mayor until eventually reaching his demise in a time vortex after election night.

When the real Rahm Emanuel was asked by Richard Roeper during the "Roe/Roeper Show" on WLS-AM about his evil doppelganger, he laughed and said, "After the election, I am offering a donation to the charity of that man/woman's choice, If they will come forward and identify himself. $2500 or $5,000 to the charity of that individual's choice if they will make public who they are."

Evil Rahm doppelganger countered with a tweet, "I swear to [expletive] god, I will donate $2500 to the charity of your choice if you can come and fix this [expletive] radio."
