Weiner admits tweeting with a minor
PJ Tattler ^ | June 10, 2011 | Bryan Preston

Posted on 06/10/2011 7:15:24 PM PDT by La Lydia

He says there was nothing indecent going on. Do we have any reason to believe anything he says, though? I’m just spitballing here, but he may, just may, be only admitting to as much as he absolutely has to. And with Patterico’s prosecutorial brief, lying about not tweeting with any minor at all became untenable.

Rep. Anthony Weiner sent private electronic messages to a 17-year-old Delaware girl but maintains there was nothing inappropriate in his communications with her.

In a statement to Roll Call Friday evening, the New York Democrat’s spokeswoman Risa Heller said, “According to Congressman Weiner, his communications with this person were neither explicit nor indecent.”

Heller’s statement comes after the New Castle County Police Department questioned the girl Friday afternoon, according to Fox News, which said it had reporters present at the home when police arrived.

Weiner became a “follower” of the girl, who is 17, on Twitter in April, and subsequently sent her direct messages. The content of those messages was unknown Friday.

Their content won’t be unknown forever, Weiner. Keep lawyerin’ up.

What I’d like to know is, when Mr. Weiner tweets his genitals, how do you know it’s his genitals and not his mug shot?

I can understand politicians having to set up a Twitter account, but I don’t understand why they would “follow” anyone.

Weiner must be getting desparite. He has no other means of making a living.

Doomed to a life in the DC minor leagues!

Haha, he doesn’t even have credibility with his own staff, not that they care since he’s their paycheck. Birds of a feather since there are no reports of a mass walkout in protest of his behavior.

Late week when he had his press conference, he said none of the girls were underage, now he admits it was an underage girl. If he knows now, why didn’t he know then?

He also says the contact wan not indecent. The police had better get a search warrant to double check his statement. Asking the victim, won’t cut it. She could be covering for him.

Few days later he’ll then admit they were indecent.

Taking bets on when he finally resigns.

Just go away Wiener PLEASE!!!

We've got an economy collapsing in on itself and a pres__ent who's busy planning his vacation at Camp David, and even Fox is all Wiener all the time. I can't stand seeing that June 6 non-apology. If this guy had any decency at all he'd just step down.

You can't sext someone if you dont "follow" them. How else will you sent them shots of your crotch? Cripes, everyone knows that.

Even Eric Massa had a staff uprising.

As we recall Tony Reported that "Eric is one taco short of a happy meal".

That's how much sympathy Tony had for a fellow Congress-critter embroiled in some sort of a sexually tinged cruising operation ~ kind of like Tony's in fact ~ followed the same pattern.

The only thing different, as far as we know, is Eric was tickling young guys and Tony was "following" underage girls!

So did Weiner sent tweets to teenage boys? if so was he just campaigning for the future? If so why contact a girl in Delaware?she cant vote for him. Did he have a habit of tweeting people for no reason all over the country?

“Weiner became a “follower” of the girl, who is 17”

Even if I were to accept Weiner’s explanation (which I don’t, at this point) of things, this makes my skin crawl.

Yeah, it’s easy to rack up hundreds of “friends” on social media like Facebook and Twitter. It would be one thing if the 17 year old was say, living in his Congressional District and “followed” him. I’m sure most Reps and Senators get stuff like that.

But a 46 year-old man following the tweets of a teenager who’s living in a neighboring state, and that he doesn’t even know? Even in the best case scenario, that’s kinda creepy. And with Congressman Horshack, we’re probably not looking at the best case scenario...(<—understatement of the week).

With the internet publication of the explicit photo of him in a state of arousal, I predict that coming next election, Anthony Weiner will be facing some STIFF competition!

Kind of sounds like we are talking about Bill Clinton again . . . but then, they did have a close personal friendship (Toon married Huma and he).

Why would a US Congressman be sending direct messages to 17 year old girl? Why am I asking this? Why would a US Congressman send a pic of his genitals to a college girl or for that matter anyone? I think Trump summed it up when he said “the guy is a psycho.”

NOT ONLY does this expose Weiner and the Democrats for the vile scum they are, it shows WHY places like New York City and the majority of its residents should NOT be the cultural, philosophical and political weather-vanes and standard-bearers for America.

This pervert still enjoys a 51% approval rating in the Rotten Big Apple!
