Skip to comments.Weiner admits he sent lewd Twitter picture, refuses to resign (Apologizes to Breitbart)
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....

Weiner finally admits what everyone else already knew.
And Andrew Breitbart is officially King of the Media World.
The NY Post article has 160 comments so far, mostly negative.
The DU article has 0 comments so far. Go figure.
Resign you hypocritical commie bastard!
And he’ll get his huge pension....party with the elite...and basically....scr** the public!!
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.
Weiner pulled a Bahner?
“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).
Actually, there is one comment on an existing thread which is "Cough".
Also there is a thread headlined "Andrew Breitbart Takes Over Anthony Weiner Conference" with 0 comments so far.
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.
I don’t think he did. He is not that dumb.
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.
Youtube video “It’s my D*ck in a Tweet” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-sb8e3P4LM&feature=share
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.
You did the Tweet, now resign your seat!”
Two words, Congressman: National Laughingstock
NOW should be all over this demanding Weiner resign. Same goes for Pelosi.
An apology doesn't cut it Weiner!
No surprise, he's a Rat pervert, they're only sorry they get caught.
My wife listened to the press conference. At the end someone yelled from the press, “Were you fully erect?” before the video was cut. Talk about an embarrassing moment!
So how do we get this guy forced out of office and prosecuted?
>> Weiner spent most of last week desperately trying to deflate the issue.
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!
Weiner pulled a Bahner?-——
Weiner pulled a weiner.
Ha! Massive failz!
Anyone have a link? I want to see Weiner crying.
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.
>> At the end someone yelled from the press, Were you fully erect?
So how did he answer? Yes or no?
That’s what I call “caught between the horny of a dilemma”.
Meantime, we know all about Weiner's briefs.
If he does resign, at least he can look forward to having his own talk show on MSNBC.
I read otherwise that he did, saying, "I apologize to Mr. Andrew Breitbart."
Why should he resign? Democrats have no moral standards to violate!
Thanks WEINER!!! We here at Free Republic LOVE YOU!!!
Now can someone call Congressman Darrell Issa so we can get a live hearing about Weinergate on CSPAN???
“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.
Where do they give classes in this stuff? I mean, it's got to be a growth industry...wanna find out where to invest. ;^)
I heard what you mentioned on the live feed. Someone yelled out about a child too. Illegitimate kid floating about? I do not know cuz I’m not from NY.
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.
Weiner>> “I am going to try to be a better man and better husband.”
Bloody Sam>> “Ha! Massive failz!”
nuh UH! C’mon! He can *only* get better! How hard could it BE for this lowlife to improve? Talk about a low bar to clear! :-)
Here the sound of feminist outrage -—————
Is this thing on ?
At Weiner’s press conference, somebody in the back should have thrown a pie.
I would have BET that 1) he did it and 2)...like all Dims... he would refuse to resign.
Bush’s fault, I’m sure.
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 womens 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.
LOWER MY TAXES AND FORGET THIS BULLSH*T
I’m thinking the FBI ALREADY had done an investigation and drop the goodies on him.....
I didn't see that in the article.
I am with you!!
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.
