No Comment From Anthony Weiner Camp On New Alleged Sex Chats
Buzz Feed Politics ^ | 07/23/2013 | Ben Smith

Posted on 07/23/2013 10:13:01 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Anthony Weiner’s campaign did not respond Tuesday to repeated inquiries about a new set of unverified images suggesting that he exchanged sexually charged messages — and an explicit image — with a woman last summer.

The screenshots of conversations — on the nightlife site The Dirty — could not be independently confirmed. They consist of screenshots of exchanges on Facebook and the lesser-known social network Formspring between a woman (whose avatar is blurred) and a man alleged to be (and who she appears to believe) is Weiner, but who also uses the handle “Carlos Danger.”

The site’s anonymous tipster claims that Weiner continued the correspondence with her at least until August 2012, when Weiner allegedly suggested finding her a Chicago condo where they could meet. The screenshots of the exchanges are undated, however, and whether they could be shown to have taken place before or after Weiner’s 2011 fall — before which he has said he had other, yet undisclosed, online relationships — is a key question.

“Can you hard delete all our chats here,” the person identified as Weiner writes in one chat, in which he also allegedly offered his correspondent help in getting on a Politico blogger panel. “I’m deeply flawed,” he allegedly says in another.

Weiner’s blank avatar in one chat matches his blank avatar in images posted by Radar Online during the 2011 scandal that ended his congressional career. Weiner is now running for mayor of New York; other images show an avatar of Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin. These details do not guarantee, however, that the screenshots are authentic.

The Dirty is a gossip site that initially focused on nightlife in Scottsdale, Arizona, but which has gained a national following. The site made political news in 2010 when Ben Quayle, the son of the former vice president and then a congressional candidate, admitted he had written for the site under a pseudonym. Quayle was elected to Congress.

The site’s publisher, Nik Ritchie, had also been the subject of a lawsuit for posting anonymous, unverified sexual allegations about a former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader. The site, known online for its cruelty to minor celebrities and non-celebrities, grew by publishing gossip and nude photographs of club scene figures and then moved on to reality television stars and other B-list celebrities.

The site is widely read; one Weiner post has more than 100,000 views.

Ritchie didn’t respond to an inquiry seeking more details on his claims. “I’m currently in talks with Anonymous. She has lawyered up in fear of Anthony Weiner, but she is willing to expose his sexual nature to TheDirty.com for the betterment of America,” he wrote on his site.

BuzzFeed contacted Weiner’s spokeswoman, Barbara Morgan, at 7:21 a.m. Tuesday about the postings, which went online Monday, asking whether they are real. She responded before 9 a.m. and then replied three more times that she would respond soon.

Two comments:

1) He can’t help himself
2) In the cesspool that is NYC, it won’t matter

Funny that the new orgy party of the new millenium has replaced the 70's cocktail party with Barry White albums, fondu pots, and Twister, with smart phones and self actuated handjobs for jack-n-jilling off.

Sad bunch we are. We can't even socialize anymore

Isn’t this an example of “resume enhancement” as Rush would say for any Democrat?

Let me play devil’s advocate here...

OK folks, isn’t the guy innocent until proven guilty? After all, these are still allegations.

Is there such a thing as a “Weiner Camp”, and if so, is it for men only?

Wiener just can’t help showing his inadequacies.

One wonders, who got Huma pregnant.

This feels like it's true. The first law of politics is that you IMMEDIATELY respond to any attack..even if it's true..you try to buy time, deflect..by saying something like "we're not gonna bother responding to these ridiculous charges by some scurrilous website.." or words to that effect.

Or, if it's not true, issue a flat denial..but Weiner can't go the first option, because he's "been there, done that."..lied publicly..multiple times..

If there is NO response by tonite, a flat, unequivocal denial..because nothnig less will do this time out, I'd say it's true, and he'll drop out..

This is likely just an attempt to boost his poll numbers in New York.

Yes, perverts are obsessed with their particular perversion. It is what drives them.

So much for Weiner being an upstanding public servant.

I absolutely agree. Once you accept that it is OK to steal from your neighbors using government force, then a little sexual immorality is irrelevant.

He must have decided to make some comment... since his press conference is about to start.

Or maybe he'll simply refuse to comment on the issue.

Essentially he's saying he expected other texts to come out... and he had said such... but is playing this off as part of the well-known past.

This narrative falls apart if it's determined that these were sent SINCE the last scandal.

AH-HA! Some of these things happened before his resignation, and some happened after.

He's admitted that after the first scandal... he did it AGAIN.

Now Huma is speaking. She's got what she deserves. NYC will get what it deserves, too.

She's on full defense mode. She's trying to save her marriage... Anthony has made terrible mistakes... before he left Congress and after... but it's between us. I love him and forgiven him.

The big news from this presser is that he'd engaged in this behavior since the scandal the caused his resignation from Congress.

It's a bad hand; he's trying to play it as well as he can... but I don't see how he recovers from this.

He sent sexually explicit messages and dirty pictures... then he resigned from Congress... then he repeated the behavior.
