Rep. Anthony Weiner (D – NY) has resigned his seat in the House Of Representatives due to a scandal involving sexual “relationships” with various women over the Internet. The move comes just a few days after Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin returned from an overseas trip. Abedin is an aide to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who knows a thing or two about this kind of situation.
Weiner has admitted to engaging in sexual behavior over the past three years via email, telephone, and through social networking services such as Twitter and Facebook. Several women have come forward to verify Weiner’s behavior, and the startling size of his…ego..
Porn star Ginger Lee has accused Weiner of telling her to lie to the media about their online relationship. Lee has since associated herself with scandal-chaser Gloria Allred in an attempt to cash-in on the controversy. With luck there will be little interest in her tawdry story now that Weiner has resigned.
Voters from Queens gathered to both protest and support embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner (D – NY). Shouting “I don’t want my kids to see Weiner!” and “I voted for Weiner, not wiener!” the crowd of angry protesters demanded Weiner resign. Supporters, including a contingent from the Borough Rest Home For Ladies and an all-male choir group, insisted Weiner should remain in office, although they would like him to spend more time in the district “getting to know his constituents”.
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D – NY) called ex-president Bill Clinton to express his remorse over lying about “inappropriate” online relationships.
Clinton advised Weiner to be patient: “Look at what happened to me – if you just wait things will blow over. Sure things suck right now, and the media will chew you up and spit you out, but you just have to swallow your pride and take your licks.”
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) admitted Monday that he lied about his Twitter account being hacked, and confessed that he did send an image of his bulging shorts to a young woman via the social networking Web site. Weiner said he has had online “relationships” with “about six” women over the past three years, and engaged in “inappropriate conversations conducted over Twitter, Facebook, e-mail and occasionally on the phone, fax, by telegram, courier, carrier pigeon, pony express, those blinking light things the Navy uses, hand signals, smoke signals, and several times using a shiny piece of metal reflecting the Sun.”
Weiner said he will not be resigning his office, leaving his wife, or even feeling particularly bad. “I mean, c’mon, you saw the picture – wouldn’t YOU want everyone to see something like that?”
Did someone hack Rep. Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account and post a picture of a penis, or did Weiner actually tweet his own wiener? Considering this story was broken by Andrew Breitbart we should probably give Weiner the benefit of the doubt. Because even though the Democrat congressman from New York has the name “Weiner”, there’s little doubt Breitbart is a dick.
