WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: Welcome back. I'm Wolf Blitzer. We're on Capitol Hill with Congressman Anthony Weiner of New York. Congressman, thanks very much for joining us.
REP. ANTHONY WEINER (D), NEW YORK: Thank you, Wolf. It's my pleasure.
BLITZER: Did you send that picture to that college student in Washington state?
WEINER: I did not. She says she never got it and doesn't know me; I don't - certainly don't know her.
This seems like it's a prank to make fun of my name. You know, when your named Weiner, that happens a lot. Got 45,000-some odd Twitter followers, hundreds of people that I follow. This seems like a prank that has gotten an enormous amount of attention.
BLITZER: This is the picture - I'm sure you've seen it by now. Is this you?
WEINER: I can tell you this. We have a firm that we've hired - I've seen it, it's - I've seen it - a firm that we've hired to get to the bottom of it.
I can tell you this, that photos can manipulated. Photos can be of one thing changed to look like something else. We're going to try to get the bottom of what happened. Maybe Jon Stewart last night had it right, unfortunately, but we're going to find out.
Look, this has turned into this kind of international whodunit. What it really is was, I think, a prank. I'm treating it like a prank and trying to get back to the work I'm trying to do. I understand you want to pursue the story, and we're going to try to help you the best we can.

The man certainly lives up to his name.
No, Weenie Man, it won't go on for years and cost million of taxpayer dollars. An FBI computer expert will know in 24 hours if you sent the photo or a hacker did it. Records from Twitter will then determine what IP address did it. They will have this wrapped up in just a few days. But you can't afford a criminal investigation, can you. You really weren't hacked, were you?
He knows about one particular picture...
This little jerk needs to get some type of constructive hobby.
Playing with his computer at night isn’t healthy; but then perhaps it all makes sense seeing as though Weener is a DemocRAT and a loud-mouthed insulting bottom feeder.
Weiner the whiner , it could happen to a more deserving man
I have to say , I’m gloating
This is seriously stupid. I saw the pic (God save my soul), and unless some pic just happened to be shot from straight down (IE: Taken the picture of yourself), Weiner is the photographer.
(How you doing, DFL?)
“Somebody hacked my account. Sure, there may be pictures of my bulge available on the internet, but this may or may not be me. Debt limit. It's a prank. I don't know this poor victim in Seattle, and I don't know why a stripper is saying I sent her direct messages. It's a prank. People throw pies at me. Back to business. Medicare. For Pete's sake, will you people just leave me alone so I can get back to secretly sexting young women?”
In German words the second of two consecutive vowels is sounded, i.e., diesel. If this guys name is spelled “Weiner” as all posts seem to use, then it should be pronounce “Whiner”, which is ironically fitting. So, is it spelled Wiener or Weiner?
I'd be willing to bet, though, that most of us can be fairly certain that there aren't any pictures of us "out there" of us in our underwear that we aren't aware of. At least, not pictures taken of us over the age of two or so.
yah...he has to be worried if the evidence will stand up in court...
“I don’t know what photographs are out there in the world of me.”
Maybe it’s just me..... perhaps I just haven’t gotten out enough over the years.
Of the hundreds, if not thousands of photo’s taken of me, I know for a fact and to a moral certainty, that there is not a single photo of me in my underwear showing off my bulging penis. I must be strange because I didn’t have to go down memory lane to be so certain.
Weiner is certainly a standard bearer for the democrat party.
Gloating is my business, and let me tell you: business is gooood.
That means either 1) he doesn't know if it is him or 2) he knows it is him and he is lying.
If someone took a picture of me in my underwear, I would definitely know about it. I never appear in my underwear in places where I can be photographed. I guess Mr. Weiner does, so he cannot confirm or deny that the pictures are of him.
“Every day, Wolf, people have stuff like this happen”
Is Wolfe’s weiner on the internet?
I can definitely say that in my entire life it has never happened to me.
It sounds like Weiner got caught sexting. Was he using a government phone? Was he in a government office when he did it?
Not the FBI?
Not the Capitol Police?
Not the Secret Service?
Weiner: “We have a firm that we’ve hired” - is that another weiner joke?
