Posted on 06/01/2011 1:42:15 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
In an interview with CBS News Wednesday, New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner repeatedly refused to deny that his crotch is seen in a lewd photograph sent to a college student from his Twitter account.
Weiner did say explicitly that he did not send the photo.
"I did not, this was a prank, a hoax," he told CBS News' Congressional Correspondent Nancy Cordes.
He said his "system was hacked into," noting that "we've retained a firm that is going to take a look at the Internet security that to make sure this does not happen again." Weiner said the firm would try to find out "exactly what happened."
But Weiner would not say that he is not pictured in the photograph, prompting Cordes to say, "it sounds like it was a photo of you." Weiner responded, "well, we're going to try to find out exactly what happened."
Later, Cordes said, "I think any normal person could say with certainty whether a picture was a photo of them or not, whether they had taken a photo of them or not."
In response, Weiner referenced Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" segment Tuesday night in which Stewart suggested that the photo didn't look like Weiner for what Weiner called "embarrassing reasons."
At another point, the congressman said, "the photograph does not look familiar to me."
"But before I say anything I want to make sure that nothing was manipulated about it, that it wasn't taken - that something wasn't dropped into my account or taken out," he said.
"This was a hoax," he continued. "It was committed on me, it was a prank, it was relatively easy one to do, making fun of my name. My accounts were hacked in to. I think at some point we've got to start focusing on other issues."

NEEDS TO RESIGN IMMEDIATLY. He is a small dick.....
The necessary optics have been ordered. A photo of Weiner is omitted so as to not scare the children.
A person can plead guilty or innocent or no contest (which is accepted as guilty) and if he is pleading no contest in the court of public opinion, then he is guilty.
His account had a picture or pictures of his weiner?
The pervert needs to resign.
So a ‘hacker’ got Rep Weiner to pose for a crotch picture and then hacked Weiner’s Twitter and Yfrog accounts to post the picture.
Wow, those hackers are amazing these days.
For those that haven’t seen the photo, word is that it looks like a Weiner, only smaller.
It's the same firm that O.J. Simpson retained to look for the real killer of Nicole and Ron.
If Wiener thinks his account was hacked, why isn’t he calling for an investigation? After all, remember the son of a democratic state senator that hacked Sarah Palin’s e-mail account? He got in big trouble.
Hacking is a crime. If Wiener believes his account was hacked, he needs to call for an FBI investigation to punish the hacker.
Of course, I don’t believe his account was hacked, which is why he is not calling for an investigation.
He’s too stupid or lust-struck to remember to DM the nasty pic, now he’s caught, with pants up but barely.
I think Mr. Weiner needs to have a chat with Mr. Boehner about proper decorum.
Meanwhile I have not doubt this “investigation” will be finding some bogus way of saying his dog did it. His weiner dog, that ie...
I was stunned to find out Jon Stewart and Wiener had been roommates. Weird.
Maybe Huma Wiener should be put on the record whether she can corroborate if that is in fact her hubby and his underwear.
Weiner is sounding pretty sore about this whole incident, and as everyone knows, a sore Weiner can’t be beat.
Any investigation funded by Weiner is nothing but an effort to cover it up by creating an alternative theory.
.we’ve retained a firm that is going to take a look at the Internet security that to make sure this does not happen again.....................
In other words, he’s contacted Amazon to send him a copy of “Twitter for Dummies”!
If your Twitter account is hacked call a lawyer. Sure.
