Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) is one of the most noxious far-left hacks to ever (dis) grace the floor of Congress.
That personal aside, aside, apparently Anthony Weiner (or someone that hacked his Twitter account) sent out a very inappropriate photo of his....ahem...well, his last name to all of his Twitter followers.
Meant as a private message to someone that is clearly not his wife, the photo shows a not-safe-for-work image (click at your own risk) of a skinny white dude -- clearly aroused -- strutting his stuff in his tighty-whities.
Publius at Big Government reports:
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY 9″) finds himself in a late night online pickle.My take on Wienergate -- at least at this point -- is that only Anthony "Wiener" and the woman he sent the disgusting photo to knows the truth.
This evening a photo surfaced on Congressman Weiner’s yfrog account and in his verified Twitter timeline of a man in his underwear with an erection. The photo was reportedly sent to a woman on Twitter. We’ve protected her name and her account, which was at one time verified to be active but has since been deleted after the photo in question was deleted...
...Coincidentally, the rest of the photos in the congressman’s alleged yfrog account were also deleted around 11 p.m. eastern...
...Weiner, who married Hillary Clinton’s longtime assistant, Huma Abedin, last year, has been Tweeting about hockey this evening. Confusion reigns online as puzzled Weiner followers wonder what occurred to Weiner’s timeline.
The photo, stored at Weiner’s alleged yfrog account, is connected to his verified Twitter account. Were his yfrog and Twitter accounts hacked as well?
The photo that was publicly tweeted does not show Weiner's face, as Rep. Christopher Lee (R-NY-26) recent Craigslist sex solicitation ad that caused him to resign clearly did (photo at left).
I assume that Weiner will slither away from Wienergate and that the controversy will not add up to anything.
It's very odd that Weiner's response to the whole thing was an admission that his Facebook account had been hacked (not Twitter), Either way, it's a funny story that is finding a lot of us on the right-blogosphere tongue-tied-and-twisted this holiday weekend -- who can't giggle about a possible sex scandal regarding a guy with the last name Wiener?
Do you think Weiner actually did post his Wiener?
Maybe just the implication or possibility that he did will leave a bad taste in voter's mouths next year as Wiener faces reelection.
Bad choice of words!
MORE: Doug Ross has more, including the double standard placed on Republicans that are caught in this kind of scandal.
Patterico also has the screen-capped timeline to Wienergate.
Donald Douglas at American Power thinks the Twitter timeline looks pretty incriminating and Sister Toldjah has a great Wienergate writeup as well.
More Wiener discussion: Memeorandum. Cross posted to Proof Positive (who I am certain will love this story!).
Updated: Post amended to correct spelling of Weiner's name, not "Wiener" -- although it's pretty funny!
