    Advice Muttered

    Advice Muttered

    A denial no politician wants to have to make.  From CBS News:

    I did not send Twitter crotch pic

    Someplace Bill Clinton was heard to mutter, “Well, Weiner’ll just have to win, then.”

    "Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat, has “retained counsel”

    "A spokesman for Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat, told The Daily Caller the Congressman’s team has “retained counsel” and is exploring the “proper next steps” after his official Twitter account posted a picture of a man’s erect penis underneath gray boxer shorts. The internet-driven scandal has come to be known online as “Weinergate,” a pun on the Congressman’s last name."

    Ace of Spades

    Not being terribly Twitter savvy, there are several things I do not understand.

    Weiner is back to tweeting today. Does this mean the "hacker" gave him control back? Seriously, does this mean the "hacker" figured out the password and gave that info back to Weiner, who reset his password?

    Also why would this girl say that she was being harassed by a person who was known to her, when the pic was listed as being Weiner's? As a defense, this doesn't seem to, um, make any, um, SENSE.

    Just askin.' Not terribly bright or insightful questions, I suppose, but ones I don't get.

    It all seems so stupid. Personally I don't care what he does with his personal life; what concerns me is national security and predatory behavior on the part of a person with government power toward young people.

    There is no quote from Weiner in the linked article. Funny that 😉 MFM Fail.

    “It happens to people,” Rep. Weiner asserted, “You move on.” (and retain counsel)


    Unfortunately for Congressman Weiner, Weinergate jumps to the MSM which found this a hard story to ignore.

    NY Daily News

    CBS manages to get the very first thing about the story wrong: the Congressman didn't say it. His spokesman did. The Congressman, who normally can't be chased away from in front of a camera with a firehose, is suddenly uninterested in speaking directly to the press.

    In a given situation, an innocent person can be expected to act a certain way. When the alleged victim claims to be the victim of a very public and embarrassing crime and doesn't get the immediately involve the authorities, perhaps no crime has actually taken place.
