Weiner Lied, Admits it, Will Not Resign; Anthony Weiner Apologizes for Weinergate

Anthony Weiner Admits ItAnthony Weiner has just finished speaking at a press conference where he admitted taking the picture at the center of the Weinergate scandal and sending it to the young female in Seattle.  He also admitted to having engaged in similar activities with at least six women over the course of the last few years – some before and some after his marriage to Clinton Aide Huma Abedin.  He said he was embarrassed and is still embarrassed, but will not resign.

The Congressman’s hand was forced Monday by Andrew Breitbart of Big Government who ran the following

BigGovernment.com and BigJournalism.com have reported throughout the morning about the emergence of new details in the Weinergate saga, after a young woman came forward with new information that tends to undermine severely the theory that Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) was the victim of a “prank” or a “hack.”

The following photograph, reminiscent of that posted by former Rep. Chris Lee (R-NY) on Craigslist earlier this year, was allegedly sent to the young woman on Friday, May 20, 2011 via a Yahoo! email address that she claims was an alternate alias for Rep. Weiner:

Fox News:  On Monday, BigGovernment.com published what it claimed were more photos the congressman allegedly sent to another woman.

The website published a photo of a man’s shirtless torso supposedly sent May 20 from a Yahoo! email address to somebody described only as a “young woman.” The woman said that the email was an alternate email address for Weiner.

The website did not identify the recipient. It posted additional shirtless photos claiming they were associated with that account.

The entertainment website RadarOnline.com also reported that a middle-aged woman from Nevada was claiming to have 200 explicit messages from Weiner via a Facebook account. It is not clear whether the two sites were referring to the same woman.

Breitbart also claimed to be in possession of “X-Rated” photos of Congressman Weiner – who admitted at the press conference that the pictures did in fact exist.

Weiner says he does not believe he’s violated any House rule or any ethical code of conduct.  He says he used no government resources to send these messages.  He also says he did nothing to “try to cover it up.”  - I guess what we’ve been watching for the last several days has been glossing over – not covering up.

I’ve got no independent confirmation, but pretty certain Former Congressman – Christopher Lee – is thinking – If only I’d used Twitter and Facebook; and not Craigslist. I guess that’s what he gets for going the “creepy route” – oh and being a Republican and not a Dem.

Don’t wanna play I told you so, but I’m pretty sure I nailed it after hearing this…

And then there’s also theory D.  That’s the new and fresh one that today’s revelation has spawned.  Maybe, just maybe, Weiner was really sending lewd photos to a woman; or women.  Either way, he’s screwed.  If it’s “women”, the first pic will certainly not be the last.  Add that to the fact that unless the Congressman from New York is randomly sending around pictures of his junk upon Twitter following notification, I’d say there’s probably quite a trail that will tell one interesting tale.

Pats on the back welcome.

RS McCain links… Thanks. And points us in the direction of AOSHQ – who’s not-so-quietly gloating and asking whether we just hear “the truth” or something else??

Need a timeline – he’s got one…

      Going into the military as a young woman from Kansas really opened my eyes as well as working for the govt for 20 years. I am sad to say that I have seen enough sleaziness, lies, and misrepresentation by govt members to last a lifetime. I have also seen honest, straight talking individuals. Weiner’s conduct is something I saw frequently from young men in basic training, ie, sending pics to the girls in other bldgs, but really, can these boys in Washington please grow up!!!!

        First off, thank you for your service Vrina.

        But to your comment, one would think our elected officials would “know better”, but I do believe the sad reality is that power corrupts in many ways. I suppose the upside here is that Weiner’s power corrupted in a manner that was only detrimental to himself and his family and not his constituents or the American People. I’m sure there’s something to be said for his actions in other areas as well now that we know what he’s capable of in terms of feigning outrage and lying through his teeth, but for now, I’m glad his misconduct has been confined to his private affairs.

      As if we didn’t know on the first day he didn’t deny it.

      Of course he didn’t resign. For Demon Rats, this type of behavior is not a disgrace, it’s a badge of honor. They are shameless cowards and liars.

        I love that you consistently refer to them as “Demon Rats” without fail. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a comment where you didn’t use it. That is the kind of consistency I like and respect around here. Many thanks POWinCA
