Agreed his comments didn’t ring true. There was no reason to say that his wife knew and his “assumption” that the girls were of age seems to suggest that some probably aren’t or weren’t and he’s looking for an out.
The entire press conference didn’t ring true. It comes in an afternoon when the blogs are abuzz with the release of new photos (not really that bad, btw), the fake tears, and the refusal to take real responsibility for these acts by doing the right thing and resigning his position in Congress. Strictly damage control, and nothing else.
It’s that lack of responsible behavior that insures this story still has legs. Had he resigned, it would have gone away after another day or so of fun threads. But now, he’s disgraced himself, the House of Representatives, the Democrat Party, and any-and-all who stood up for him. He’s also admitted to using people both for his own advantage and to damage their reputation with his lies.
Also, one of the “other” women has stated he in fact did call her from his Congressional phone. Those records should be easy to obtain, both on her end and his. In fact, his using his office to lie to the press could well be in violation of Congressional rules. He may think he has this behind him, but he’d better think again.
