Don’t these dopey New York Democrats ever learn?

Honestly, my Twitter account was hacked!

A Suffolk County politician pulled a move out of theAnthony Weiner playbook when The Post discovered he was following Duke porn star Belle Knox — by claiming the account was hijacked.

County Executive Steve Bellone said that is how the 19-year-old Duke University student and porn actress ended up as one of the 267 people on his “following” list.

Knox, whose legal name is Miriam Weeks, made headlines earlier this year when she was outed by a fellow student at the North Carolina school for her extracurricular activities in the sex industry.

Bellone, a married father of three who is up for re-election next year, insisted he has no idea how his account came to be linked to Knox.

“County Executive Bellone’s Twitter account, which is operated by his staff, has been hacked and an obscene Twitter account was subsequently followed,” said his spokeswoman, Vanessa Baird-Streeter.

Um, yeah, whatever.

The Bellone aide also said that “law-enforcement authorities have been notified and the Suffolk County Police Department is currently investigating.”

There’s no evidence that Bellone exchanged personal messages with the porn star.

The politician best known for blaming a hacker for connecting him to lewd material on the Web was the former Rep. Weiner, who later admitted he was a serial sexter. Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011.

Sure, let’s waste law enforcement time and money on this. Great idea.
