In a post titled ” I Did Not Have Sex With……, Oh Wait that was Another Democrat!” I wrote the followings “ Weiner will continue to deny and will go on saying he will not talk about it anymore for he need to get back to peoples business. All I can say to him is ” Twaddle !”, well folks was I right or was I right.” As I watched the vessel of man shed tears and try to be so hurt by his own actions, I could not but feel sorry for his wife and the people that trusted this Vessel and voted him for office 7 times. He will continue his claim of seeing the light of repentance, and most likely will not resign which is the right and honorable thing to do, at this time it does not matter tome any more for this is the trend of any Democrat, once they get the foot hold in the office the only way to get them out is wait for retirement. Where are the Democrats screamers? Why any from the left is not demanding this lire, cheater two face vessel to resign? My question is why the Republicans allow this to go on?
Rep. Weiner Admits to Sending Lewd Twitter Photo, Acknowledges Other Explicit Conversations
Published June 06, 2011
Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., admitted Monday that he sent a lewd photo to a woman over Twitter after initially claiming he was hacked. Saying he is “deeply ashamed,” he also said he’s had explicit conversations with six women over the last three years, some of which occurred after he got married in 2010.
But the seven-term congressman said he would not resign, expressing hope that he could win back the trust of his constituents.
“This was me doing a dumb thing and doing it repeatedly and then lying about it,” Weiner said. “And that’s all there is.”
The congressman got choked up several times as he delivered his remarks and afterward took questions from the media, particularly as he discussed his wife — Huma Abedin, an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He said he has apologized to his wife and, though she was not present at the press conference, said they have “no intention of splitting up.” He said she was “not happy” about his actions.
After a week of denials, Weiner opened up the press conference by saying he takes “full responsibility” for his actions. “I have made terrible mistakes that have hurt the people I care about the most and am deeply sorry,” Weiner said.
The controversy erupted last week after a photo of somebody’s bulging underwear was sent from his Twitter account to a Seattle college student. Weiner, who was frequently combative with reporters last week as they inquired about the image, repeatedly maintained he was hacked, though he wouldn’t confirm whether the photo was an image of him.
Taking the podium on Monday, Weiner spoke far more bluntly.
“The picture was of me and I sent it,” he said, adding that he sent it as a “joke.”
Trying to explain his mindset, Weiner said that he has “not been honest” with himself. He said he was “embarrassed” and “humiliated” and was trying to protect himself and his wife, so he made up a story about being hacked.
The admission came as news outlets and websites began to report on other racy and explicit messages and photos from Weiner’s account to other women.
The website BigGovernment.com, which published the underwear photo that touched off the controversy. published another 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.
Weiner addressed his actions at the Sheraton Hotel in New York City Monday afternoon. However, BigGovernment.com publisher Andrew Breitbart unexpectedly took to the podium first to answer questions and criticize both Weiner and the media’s coverage of the story.
“I want to hear the truth from Congressman Weiner,” Breitbart told reporters. He also said he wants an “apology” from Weiner for allegedly pushing a “blame-the-messenger strategy.”
Breitbart said the photos his website published appear to be Weiner.
“He’s in very good shape,” he said.
Weiner later said he offered his apology to Breitbart. He also said he regrets not telling the truth to the media and members of his staff.
BigGovernment.com also claimed that Weiner sent the “young woman” the underwear photo two days prior to the chest pictures. The site claimed another image was sent May 18 to the young woman, but did not publish it — describing it as “extremely graphic” and leaving “nothing to the imagination.” All this would have occurred before the Twitter incident May 27, when the underwear photo was sent to a Seattle college student and then quickly deleted.
The college student said she did not know Weiner personally but followed his Twitter account.
