Welcome To Weinergate

Ohhh, I’m glad I’m not an Anthony Weiner,

That is something I just wouldn’t wanna be.

Cause if I was an Anthony Weiner,

Everyone would take a swipe at me.

(Sung to the tune of the Oscar Meyer Weiner song)

Some jokes just write themselves. But on the more serious side, let’s look at this with an analytical eye. If the guy’s account was hacked, I would think the ego thing would kick in saying: “I’m a sitting U.S. Congressman, no one can do that to me. I am gonna burn them, but good.” But, not A. Weiner.

He says we shouldn’t worry about it, it was a prank and we shouldn’t get the FBI or any other law enforcement agency involved on something this silly. They have more important things to worry about right? So, he has hired private companies to look into how this happened, how they can prevent it from happening again, and to save the taxpayers from willful and wanton waste of their money.

Translation: There’s porn on my computer and I want it removed before the authorities get a hold of it.

    You can bet that when a politician says “Move on…nothing to see here, folks.” that there’s something here to see. Except, what was in the picture…not much to see there. Maybe he was embarrassed that his wiener looked to be one of those little cocktail wieners.

  2. The arrogance of the left is stunning.

    I truly believe he is lying, he would want it investigated if he was hacked.

    Instead he will just tell everyone it is none of their business.

    It seems that every place he stopped off to give interviews, he changed his story slightly…all the time trying not to say whether the photo was of him or not. But it looks like by the time he got to Rachel Maddow, he actually admitted it was a photo of him…sorta.

    From Gateway Pundit:
    “you realize that now everybody thinks the photo is you… where there’s smoke there’s fire.” Having apparently watched Lawrence O’Donnell an hour before, Rep. Weiner replied, “I have to say, I wish!” before saying that “the photo doesn’t look familiar to me.” Yet he still refused to say definitively whether it is him, but this time explained his rationale slightly more: “stuff gets manipulated… maybe it started out being a photograph of mine,” he allowed, that “was taken out of context.”

    Taken out of context? How do you take a picture out of context?

    So, we have a Representative in Congress who’s ego is so large that it dwarf’s his mentality who thinks it’s a cool idea to take a picture of his penis and have said picture available for someone to (supposedly) use it? It just brings to mind all the “to catch a predator ” shows where the police find perverts sending pictures of their “manhood” to young girls…many are not even teens yet. What “normal” person would want a picture of his penis? And what “normal” person would have it available to send through any internet account?

    It’s just all so sick and perverted. And now he has some bright idea to do jokes about it…”I’m sorry I was a little “stiff” yesterday.” etc. This is not a laughing matter, at the very least his wife can’t be so happy, no matter what he says. But this guy, with the mentality of a sick predator is representing our government. Sick. And I would be just as disgusted if he were a Republican or Independent.

    Looks like the girl recipient of said wiener is not happy (per the NYP):

    The furious mom of the Seattle college coed at the center of Weinergate yesterday demanded that the cocky congressman come clean about the lewd photo.

    “I’m really upset. I feel like he’s a person of power and influence, who can make a statement and make all this go away,” Carol Mizuguchi said, blasting Rep. Anthony Weiner for his continued snarky sidestepping.

    “As her mother, I’m really upset,” Mizuguchi told The Post. “I’m pissed off at that.”

    Mizuguchi’s 21-year-old daughter, Gennette Cordova, got the surprise package — a close-up of an underwear-clad crotch — over the weekend in a tweet from Weiner’s account.

    After days of dodging, Weiner yesterday admitted he “can’t say with certitude” that the photo isn’t of him.

    But he continued to deny he sent the picture.

    The pol’s refusal to clarify things has made a bad situation more difficult for her daughter, Mizuguchi said.

    “It’s a distraction [for Gennette],” she said. “It’s during her finals and she’s 21 years old.”

    The aspiring journalist even dropped one of her classes in the wake of the scandal, according to a faculty adviser.

    “She’s just trying to have a normal life,” Cordova’s mom said.

  5. If he was hacked, it was someone who knew he had a lot of this kind stuff on his computer. It was someone who knew he was emailing pics like this to others. But more than anything, I think there are more damning things on this guys hard drive, porn, swingers clubs, etc.

    He’s really dug himself into a deep hole this time and it serves him right. He is one of the worst pricks we have ever had serve in Congress, and the pun was intended.

    There’s a story out now about how the FBI is going to investigate a possible Chinese hack into accounts of ‘high level government officials’ and others. How do we know the Chinese didn’t hack his account if he won’t let anyone look into it? Instead he hired a bunch of lawyers and private dicks (sorry) to get to the bottom of it — translation, get him out of it. The question is how long the mainstream media holds onto the story. Weiner is playing a stall game right now, hoping for some other big story to eclipse him.

    • A plausible scenario for sure. But like I said, he knows he has visited porn and swinger sites so he is stalling to get his hard drive cleaned up. Otherwise, he’d be cooperating.
