Weiner’s ex Kirsten Powers: He lied to me
daily caller ^ | 6-9-11 | Laura Donovan and C.J. Ciaramella

Posted on 06/09/2011 6:33:56 AM PDT by doug from upland

Daily Beast columnist Kirsten Powers took it hard when former flame Anthony Weiner deceived her about his recent Twitter picture scandal. The Fox News contributor, who initially defended Weiner, has called on the scandal-ridden New York Congressman to resign.

In a Wednesday column, Powers, who dated Weiner for three months in 2002, said he “must resign from Congress immediately.”

Powers attests that the Congressman, who admitted Monday to tweeting a photo of his erect penis, was dishonest with her when she confronted him about the story.

(Weiner’s website vilifies online sex predators)

According to Powers’s latest article, Weiner wrote in an email to her before his public confession, “I didn’t send it, statements on sat, sun, monday, the girl said she doesn’t know me, I don’t know her. The people I follow are all people who ask. We’ve hired a law firm but not to protect me, to put together the team to figure out how we prevent and maybe civil or criminal next steps. We don’t know where this photo came from. We have theories. Until we know for sure we open up legal hornets nest if we say.”

In her piece, Powers wrote that she felt lied to.

“I believed him when he told me last week that he had done nothing wrong,” Powers wrote. “He knew I was going on the show Hannity, where I would use this false information to defend him in front of millions of people. I did, and I regret it.”

Powers asserts that Weiner is not a trustworthy individual, adding that she questions the truth to his Monday presser.

“There is no way anyone can ever believe anything Weiner says again after that,” Powers wrote. “In fact, I highly doubt that what he said in his press conference is even true. Narcissism doesn’t begin to describe this kind of behavior. It seems there was nobody he didn’t lie to.”

Powers says Weiner’s bad behavior goes beyond the unfair manner in which he has treated his wife. Weiner, Powers claims, is somewhat of a threat to females.

“But even if I could see past the lying and extreme narcissism that is noteworthy even by Washington standards, there is the issue of his attitude toward women,” Powers wrote. “What has emerged is a picture of a predator trolling the Internet for women—some half his age—with which to engage in cybersex.”

Yes, I saw it, and my guess is that it is real. He needs to man up, get his life in order, resign, get another job out of the spotlight, and take care of his wife and family.

"Powers wrote. “He knew I was going on the show Hannity, where I would use this false information to defend him in front of millions of people. I did, and I regret it."

I'd say this is the classic proof of "A Conservative is a liberal who's been mugged", but it's apparently not true for hard core liberals of the more stupid variety...

Kirsten, babe. Let me tell you something. It doesn't matter which RAT you have a fling with. He or she holds you in utter contempt.

Oh, excuse me. Let me put it in words that you'll understand.

It’s also rumored that poor kid Huma wants him to stay on -— that she loves being married to a congressman.

Sick situation all the way around.

Kirsten is a dope.

Weiner is so obnoxious, nobody in their right mind would date him. At least, not in person...lol.

What a piece of work this chick is.

She goes on national TV night after night propagating lies to the American public that she knows are lies from people she knows are liars.

And then she finds out one of them lied to her and she gets her little feelings hurt.

I, for one, fail to feel her pain.

All of which boils down to the fact she is an air headed twit and a disgrace to the other minds on the Special report Panel.

She uses up too much air and should be cut off to save the whales

Has she ever discussed/defended him on a news show/other media without first informing her audience of their ‘dating’? She has?

So much for full disclosure/journalistic ethics...

Yes, that was sarcasm.

Oh, excuse me. Let me put it in words that you'll understand.

With Kirsten, you'll have to include it the daily DNC talking points.

Scratch that. If she's dumb enough to spew the talking points without thinking about them, then nothing will get through to her.

It wouldn't surprise me to learn that she helps formulate the talking points.

Hopefully we'll be able to save others from becoming the next Kirsten Powers.

Why is it that every time I see or hear her name all I can think of is Austin Powers.

This guy MUST be loaded.
How can this pencil necked geek be considered a ‘catch’?

Is the eligible bachelor pool dried up to the point where this pasty faced clown is considered good?

Then again, this is reminiscent of “WEE WILLIE” Clinton with the exception of someone under the desk....so far....

Still think Wiener is WJC’s (and Hillary’s) protege and they had big plans for him.

Also think that the ‘arranged marriage’ is so HRC has him ‘keeping on eye’ on Huma and WJC has Huma keeping an eye on him....
Strictly discretionary...

Can’t make these names up now can we...

Humma marries a Weiner (Weenie) who likes to get aroused on line.....

Of course Bahnie Frank has no problem with any of this, in fact he is wondering why such an esteemed MOC is being treated with such utter disregard for ‘doin what comes naturally’

I hadn’t given any thought to Weiner’s age, so I was shocked to learn that he’s 46!!!

Forty-six! WTH? He’s a pervert deluxe.

Ugly, arrogant, mean and obnoxious! That pervert spews hate and yet he sends pictures of his tiny weiner to women! Good grief. He must drink a lot or use drugs. That weiner of his is pitiful.

Have seen KP on Fox many times and most of those times she is trumpeting out some lame standard progressive response, so this Weiner stuff has now seriously damaged ANY credibility that she had as well. She is a good soldier who, like many of the other, goes out on TV and says what she is told to say.
