    Weiner Conspiracy Theory Morphs From Hacking To Blackmail

    Weiner Conspiracy Theory Morphs From Hacking To Blackmail

    Joseph Cannon was one of the first and most vocal to claim that Andrew Breitbart either directly or through others had set up Anthony Weiner by hacking and/or spoofing the original tweet last Friday night which set off the firestorm.

    Cannon’s theory of how Weiner was framed was widely cited in the case made against Breitbart in the left-blogosphere.

    Yesterday Weiner stated unequivocally that he sent the tweet.

    Cannon now has shifted gears, and is claiming that Weiner is being implicitly blackmailed into lying by Breitbart because Breitbart has an X-Rated photo of Weiner:

    Breitbart’s own words this day constitute an implied threat. He has said that he possesses an extremely explicit photo which he would prefer not to show. That as-yet unseen photo constitutes a Sword of Damocles (no pun intended). Perhaps without realizing the implications, Breitbart has today made statements which place him perilously close to the “Charles Augustus Milverton” [link added] category.

    If I were Weiner, I would have said exactly what he said today, even if I had not sent the picture on the 27th.

    Diagnosis:  Breitbart Derangement Syndrome.

    What is the logic here, Cannon?

    If Breibart was blackmailing Weiner because of a X rated photo, why wouldn't he demand Weiner's resignation instead of just getting the admission that he was lying with no consequence?

    Nothing came out of that admittance; Weiner still sits in Congress.

    Whatever credibility Cannon had just went down the same toilet as Weiner's.

    Nothing that a Democrat does is an offence. You can lie, cheat, steal or not pay your taxes and you can still sit in Congress if you sit on the Democrat side. They have no shame.

    I hope that some Democrats see the shameless conduct that is tolerated in their party and do something about it.

    Actually, Anthony Weiner Sexted From His Congressional Office–And Had Phone Sex, Too

    Precisely. The fact is that, if correct, Cannonfire has just made out a rather convincing case for the impeachment and removal from office of Congressman Weiner.

    If Weiner has this easily crumbled and violated his oath of office by falsely and publicly confessing to posting the "bulging underwear photo" and essentially to being a cyber-stalker of a series of young women, just imagine how extremely vulnerable he continues to be!

    Why, he can be completely controlled by those who forced him to take those humiliating public positions! Cannonfire should be demanding, among other things, that Weiner be forced to resign from Congress immediately.

    In fact, maybe Cannonfire will next suggest that the obvious reason Weiner is refusing to resign is that Breitbart told him not to, and that Andrew will now be exploiting the "hold" he has over Weiner, by inducing him to take public positions that Weiner would never ordinarily take, and cast Congressional votes that he would ordinarily never cast!

    Yes! That's it. It's ALL just a big huge conspiracy, I tell you! It is so clear to me now!


    Ummm…..How can a dicpic be used for blackmail when we know about it's existence from the mouth of Breitbart himself? If you're going to blackmail someone, you don't announce the leverage at a press conference that you've hacked. BDS indeed.

    Someone should have told Weiner to shut his mouth. My problem is not with how creepy he is (Yes, he is creepy). It is how easily he lied and lied again to cover up his shortcomings. I am also dismayed at the extent some in the media go to cover up for him (cough cough Canon).

    Nancy, keep draining the swamp, there are too many alligators in Washington.
