Rep. Anthony Weiner REFUSES to say if lewd Twitter photo was of him
Daily Caller ^ | 5.31.11 | Alex Pappas--





Rep. Anthony Weiner refused to answer questions outside his Capitol Hill office about how a photo of an underwear-clad erect penis ended up on his Twitter account over the weekend.

In a brief gaggle with reporters Tuesday, Weiner said he’s done talking about it and refused to say whether the photo was of him.

“I’m not going to talk about this anymore,” the New York Democrat said. ..... I’m going to get back to the conversation I care about.”

The tweet, directed at a Washington State woman, was removed from Weiner’s Twitter account shortly after it was posted Friday. He later said his account was hacked.


Weiner, wearing a coat but no tie, gave a variation of the same answer to multiple questions, including why he hired a lawyer and hasn’t asked law enforcement to investigate his allegations of fraudulent access to his account.


Asked by The Daily Caller if he’s concerned about the seriousness of someone hacking into his account, as has been alleged, Weiner only said: “I’m going to return to working on the things I care about.”

Several television crews had been sitting outside Weiner’s office before the congressman made a statement. An aide for Weiner, who refused to give his name, filmed the congressman’s exchange with a hand-held camera.

Skeptics have countered Weiner’s assertion that his account had been hacked or pranked by questioning why he hasn’t asked the FBI or Capitol Police to investigate or why officials with the U.S. House don’t appear to be more alarmed.

A spokesman for the Capitol Police told TheDC they are not investigating the incident.

Salley Wood a spokesman for the Committee on House Administration said the House doesn’t have any control over members’ use of social media, though House Administration “regularly issues IT security guidance to help Members keep these sites and their content secure.”

‘Weinergate’ (The Congressman keeps changing his story... was it a hack, or was it a prank?)
National Review ^ | 05/31/2011 | Jonah Goldberg



________________________ ________________________ _____________-



Over the weekend I said that I suspect this will not end well for Congressman Weiner. I still think I’m right.

Rep.Weiner stands accused of sending a lewd picture to a young girl via Twitter. He says he didn’t do it. At first his office said his Twitter account was “hacked.” Now he says it was all a “prank.” This is an important change in language because to claim his account was hacked is to claim he was a victim of a crime. Meanwhile a prank is something he can wave away.

Meanwhile, the Left has been all over the place. They seem torn between wanting this all to go away and wanting to pin it on Andrew Breitbart or some other conservatives to be named later. That’s a problem because Breitbart et al. seem perfectly happy to have an investigation.

Meanwhile, the only person who wants to let the story die is Weiner, which suggests he’s the one who has done something wrong or knows something he doesn’t want others to know. Even some at Daily Kos realize this is a problem. And while the MSM seems perfectly inclined to follow Weiner’s lead, there are just too many other outlets that will not let go of the story.

I honestly have no idea what happened, but I do know that Anthony Weiner is exactly the kind of Democrat who would sensationalize a story like this if the politician involved was a Republican. And you can be sure the press wouldn’t have to be dragged kicking and screaming to cover it.

I don’t think this is a colossal scandal, but the selective standards of the MSM drive me crazy. Recall that the NY-26 race we’ve just finished analyzing was a result of the fact that a sitting congressman had to resign because he sent a picture of himself without shirt to a woman on Craigslist. In 2006, Nancy Pelosi used Mark Foley’s scandal to help win back the Congress.

And what if Weiner’s innocent and this is a dirty trick by some right-wingers? Don’t we need to know that? Shouldn’t they be exposed? (You know what I mean! Do you people have any idea how hard it is not to pepper this post with double entendre?)

At minimum, it seems to me that if the Left wants to claim Weiner was set up, then they are honor bound to support a full investigation.

Anthony Weiner: Don Juan in Hell
Pajamas Media ^ | 5/31/2011 | Roger L Simon






Does the Anthony Weiner affair mean anything? Some married congressman may or may not have sent a Twitter crouch shot of himself to a college girl on the other side of the country.

Snore. So what else is new? We all know that our male politicians – left, right, gay, straight, or whatever – suffer from overdoses of testosterone. It’s almost the sole distinguishing characteristic of a profession that otherwise has no specific qualifications. Weiner himself had the reputation of being quite the playboy before he married the half-Indian, half-Pakistani Huma Abedin in 2008. So what if it hasn’t really stopped, even to the degree he counts porn stars among the short list he follows on Twitter? How very French.

But wait. That’s the point, isn’t it? Is this really the kind of behavior we Americans want from our public officials? When they lie in public about sex, how do we know they are not lying about other things?

Yes, I know Weiner has not yet been proven to have done anything, but his evasive behavior in response to questions is reminiscent of a long list of public figures from Bill Clinton to John Edwards to Eliot Spitzer to Mark Sanford to… well, I could go on. Although these men were far from the first to commit adultery, they all have something in common that most do not. They lied about it to the American public while serving us as our elected officials. None of them could be honest until it was absolutely necessary, if they were then.

Weiner has all the earmarks of such a person, refusing to talk about what happened in a recent television interview while insisting on discussing the debt ceiling. Are we then supposed to take his comments on the debt seriously? Were we ever? Leaving aside that he is a ceaseless cheerleader for a political party that has yet to produce a budget — that, after all, is a partisan decision, disingenuous as it may be — Weiner is asking us to ignore one of the oldest of legal dictums, the Roman “falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus.” You lie about one thing and you lie about all.

An argument could be made, of course, that that makes a good portion of males (and a good portion of females as well) liars about everything. But there are degrees. And the way you respond to the revelation of your peccadilloes is a mark of your character.

In that sense, Weiner has failed miserably. The defensive mixture of entitlement and anger he displayed at the news conference Tuesday in response to many natural questions on his activities is, to put it mildly, unattractive. Like many Lotharios he finds it difficult to “man up” when the pressure is on. His Brooklyn constituents should be ashamed.

This may be a good teaching moment for America, just as the Strauss-Kahn affair should be for France. There is no reason we should elect such people. Their behavior is not cute, nor is it charmingly corrupt in New Orleans/Chicago fashion. These are our elected representatives at a moment, as Weiner himself reminded us, of serious economic crisis. We don’t have time for people like him.

But we shouldn’t feel sorry for Anthony Weiner. He may not achieve his lifelong goal of being mayor of New York, but, considering the values of our era, he could end joining his former colleague ex-Governor Spitzer as a host on CNN.

One last thing: Twitter has been touted as great tool of democracy. Sometimes it is (Iran). But sometimes it’s more like a faux-democracy with all kinds of propaganda, distortion and, naturally, marketing flying back and forth in short unsubstantiated bursts. If a public official goes on Twitter, he or she does so at their (and our!) peril. Imagine, for example, if a real Hacker (not a Weiner pretend hacker) found his way into the direct message tweets between, say, a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence and his paramour… Need I say more?

I think he was trying to send it via pm or something. He does not want investigation in to this why?  And he is refusing to say if the pic is him or not.

I'm not a fan of this guy at all, but I think the conviction is jumping ahead of the story a bit.  It does sound pretty odd.  Come on, his twitter account?  Really?   Huh Huh Huh  Maybe wait for some facts to come about before nailing the guy.

He sure was getting pissed, when asked repeatedly if it was him in the picture.  I do think that it was him in the picture.We'll soon figure it out...Good thing he wasn't naked.... Cheesy

Now some people are calling for an FBI investigation, cause they say it's a national security issue. It was a direct attack on a Congressional members computer.

So that makes it ok to jump on him for something that we really don't have the facts about and looks very odd and out of character for anywone?  Fucking not cool dude.  It just comes off like you're fucking so horny to nail the guy it's queer.

First warning sign should be that he did it on twitter Roll Eyes  as if he forgot others were watching Roll Eyes  yea.... sure he did...

You shouldn't need a ct to see there might be more to this story than you're accusing Anthony W. of.

Not sure since there keeps being differing stories released on his.    He also refuses to say if the picture is him or not.   

Lets say his account was hacked, who realy has photos like that?  Ex GF?  I guess right? 

If it is him - he knows who took the pic if it was not him.

Revealed: The glamorous Twitter girls followed by Congressman Weiner as he denies sending lewd picture

By Daily Mail Reporter

Sent private messages on Twitter to porn star called 'Miss Ginger Lee' Pursued attractive congress worker two days after 9/11 attacks Sponsored a bill in 2008 to give 1,000 visas to foreign models Refuses to answer questions on crotch shot as he hires a lawyer

The New York Congressman under fire for allegedly sending a crotch picture to a female student faced fresh controversy today after it emerged he follows a string of glamorous women on Twitter.

Anthony Weiner has almost 50,000 fans on the social networking site, but he has chosen to follow just 198 in return - many of whom are attractive young females, and include a porn star, 'Miss Ginger Lee'.

Yesterday the 46-year-old desperately tried to dodge questions from reporters about the photograph of a pair of bulging underpants sent from his Twitter account to a pretty 21-year-old student in Seattle last Friday. He claims his account was attacked and the picture posted as a prank, but the allegations have once again focussed attention on Mr Weiner's playboy past.

Do you have any clue how easy it is to hack shit?  If the guy had it on his computer it would be easy as shit to get it and hack his account at twitter and post it.  Fucking come on, even several assclowns here have figured that out and actually done it to others here over the years.
