Weiner admits he sent lewd Twitter picture, refuses to resign (Apologizes to Breitbart)
NY Post.com ^ | Monday, June 6, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 06/06/2011 2:21:45 PM PDT by canuck_conservative

Here's the naked truth about Rep. Anthony Weiner -- he's an Internet perv.

A "deeply ashamed" Weiner openly wept during a news conference this afternoon in Manhattan -- admitting that he made "terrible mistakes" in sending lewd pictures of himself to women he met on Facebook and Twitter over the past few years.

A contrite Weiner vowed not to resign in the wake of the scandal and said he had told his wife only today about his ongoing online sexual trysts. "I don't know what I was thinking," an apologetic Weiner told reporters at the Sheraton Hotel in Midtown. He said 21 times that he accepted responsibility for his actions. Weiner also said he was "not resigning" -- but took "full responsibility for my actions" over the last few years.

Until today, Weiner (D-Brooklyn/Queens) had adamantly denied sending a crotch pic tweet last month. When asked last week whether the crotch seen 'round the world was his, Weiner responded that he could not say with "certitude" it was not. Weiner called the initial that photo a joke and a “hugely regrettable mistake.” Last week's underwear imbroglio erupted after a picture of bulging briefs popped up on the Twitter feed of Seattle college student Gennette Cordova, a follower of the congressman and an admitted fan.

After initially insisting that a hacker broke into his account and sent the photo, Weiner spent most of last week desperately trying to deflate the issue. "I lied because I was ashamed about what I had done," said Weiner....

Of course he does not want to resign. All the reason more why he needs to go. He has brought disgrace on the House of Reps and now he is only thinking about himself. Sorry Mr Weiner, but not only are you a liar but you make poor judgements too.

Andre Breitbart:

“I want to hear the truth. I want to hear the truth from Congressman Weiner and I would like an apology for him being complicit in a blame-the-messenger strategy,” Andrew Breitbart said at a presser before Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) took the podium — at the same place.

“I am accused of being a hacker. He said nothing. He allowed for that to go. The minions perpetuated that false, maliciousness and he went on to CNN to attack me and I feel he was complicit. You can talk. The girl’s story, I believe, will be on “World News Tonight,” and she can talk to you more specifically. I have seen a lot of this Congressman’s body and he is in very good shape and it appears to be his body. So ... okay, everything that I have said so far has come to be true.”

How can you tell that it’s a Democrat who’s accepted full responsiblity for some transgression?

Answer: when accepting “full responsiblity” carries with it no tangible consequences (like loss of office).

Did he submit a complaint? Did he involve the police or the FBI? If so, he’s committed another crime.

Democrats rarely resign their office over sex scandals. Bill Clinton set the bar for that. Anthony Weiner is a nasty little perv but he’ll likely be re-elected with votes to spare. He’s in New York and he’s a Democrat. End of story.

If this post can’t be the one that stays photographic evidence free (the description is already more than I want to hear), can people at least post warnings far in advance of this junk? I wouldn’t surprise you with photos of 90-year old former White House pool reporters, middle-aged lesbian alleged comediennes, nor middle-aged alleged lesbian comediennes.

Thanks in advance.

The Democrats have not figured out, these people are albatrosses around their necks. Like Cold Cash Jefferson and Tax Evasion Charlie Rangel, these come back to haunt parties in elections.

Weiner is now the butt of jokes and unless they deal with him, any spillover may not be good.

I hope Breitbart initiates libel proceedings against Weiner - he has essentially admitted he lied and defamed Mr. Breitbart with the malicious intent of undermining his credibility while he knew what he was saying was false. Open and shut case.

An apology doesn't cut it Weiner!

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! “Deflate the issue”! ROFLMAO!

The weiner jokes come easy, don’t they? He has no character so he won’t resign in shame... but he may rather resign than be the laughingstock he’s destined to become!

Also there is a thread headlined "Andrew Breitbart Takes Over Anthony Weiner Conference"

That was the most hilarious part of the afternoon! Weiner was scheduled to come on at 4 pm, but is late - meanwhile Breitbart shows up, is mobbed by the waiting press and is ASKED to take the already-set-up podium, and proceeds to give his own presser for 15 minutes! CNN was so ticked off they refused to carry the sound and tried to portray it as a "hijacking", which their own correspondent at the event denied.

I couldn't stop laughing thru the whole thing!!!

He made a couple of claims in his apology:

1) I don’t do drugs
2) I never met those women
3) I never had sex with those women

I wonder how long those claims will stand.

The TOTUS is not on tv today. I'm enjoying not hearing distortions about how we're at a speed bump in the recovery. There is no recovery.

Meantime, we know all about Weiner's briefs.

“full responsibility for my actions” over the last few years.

FEW YEARS? He had been dating his future wife, married her and was still showing his body parts on the internet? Is nothing sacred to a democrat? Should I even ask such a stupid question? What a slime.

So, I'm thinking this was a great career move for him. Nancy "I'm going to clean up the swamp." Pelosi will probably give him a leadership position.

Remember the gay guy Mark Foley that the MSM harped on until it guaranteed the dems the 06 election? How fast are they going to drop this story???

She was watching on FOX. She said the video was cut right after the question was asked. So as far as I know, the legend will remain: Anthony Weiner (pronounced "whiner"), wiener of mystery.

I really don’t care what his sexual perversion was: he was dishonest to everyone, including his wife.

I have never liked this congress-critter: he has always been nasty and sarcastic. It amazes me that any women would even want an on-line relationship with him.

It is so typical for these guys to say that they take “full responsibility” when they see no consequences. He is trying to pull a Ted Kennedy now. After all, Ted Kennedy did much worse, and came out of it as a hero of “women’s issues.”

Dunno about prosecution but give it a week or so, generally when they say “I will not resign” we’re down to the last few days.

Or until the new Missus Weiner has had enough and moves out, whichever comes first.

I listened to this pathetic piece of sh*t on the air during Hannity and I am absolutely disgusted.

He said, It's a personal failing he deeply apologizes BUT he doesn't think he broke any laws and blah blah freakin' blah.

Summation: I sent pictures of my member to a few contacts but, my wife stands behind me; of course she's upset but, she lovesssssssssss me. I apologize, I apologize, I apologize. The constituents will have to decide etc etc etc. However, I'm not resigning.

In the meantime, you hear the maggot brigade (a.k.a. the media) screaming questions, clicking pictures etc. Where are these people when the most corrupt government in the history of the US is making decisions??

What should happen if someone, anyone in his district had a conscience, is that they would drag that moral reprobate out of his cushy chair and proceed to beat him into a pulp. I apologize but it has come to the point that the only way we are truly going to 'cleanse' this situation is by getting involved physically. Emails, letters, phone calls do nothing. THE ONLY WAY THAT THESE DEGENERATES WILL PAY ATTENTION IS IF WE DRAG THEM OUT TO THE TOWN SQUARE.

It would not surprise me one iowta, if Weiner remains in office.
