A former NFL star known for being charged with and acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife and her friend, opened a Twitter account Saturday to let the world know that he plans to “set the record straight.”
“Coming Soon!!!” O.J. Simpson Tweeted Saturday, attaching a video.

“Hey Twitter world, this is yours truly, coming soon to Twitter,” Simpson said in the video. “You’ll get to read all my thoughts and opinions on just about everything. Now there’s a lot of fake O.J. accounts out there, so this one, @TheRealOJ32 is the only official one. It should be a lot fun. I got some gettin’ even to do. God bless, and take care.”
In a video posted later Saturday, Simpson continued his preview.
“Hey Twitter world,” he said. “You know, for years people have been able to say whatever they want to say about me with no accountability. But now I get to challenge a lot of that B.S. and set the record straight. More importantly, I’ll be able to talk about everything, especially sports – fantasy football – and even politics. But for now, let me just say, for my fellow fathers out there, happy Father’s Day. God bless.”
Thanks to all my new followers. Love learning how to use Twitter. pic.twitter.com/J4JnN59yKl

Simpson, nicknamed “The Juice,” first captivated the nation on the football field. His life took a dramatic turn in 1994 when he was accused of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman. Days later, he led police on a wild chase through the streets of Los Angeles in his infamous white Ford Bronco SUV. He was eventually acquitted of the murder charges in a trial that was closely scrutinized by the media and the American public.
In 2007, Simpson was arrested and charged with criminal conspiracy, kidnapping, assault, robbery, and using a deadly weapon after he and three men allegedly robbed a Las Vegas store to obtain sports memorabilia. He was convicted on all charges in 2008, and sentenced to 33 years in prison with the possibility of parole in nine years. In 2017, that parole was granted, and Simpson was released from prison.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
