Weiner Admits Sending Photo, Pelosi Calls for Probe

Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted he sent a photo of his bulging underwear to a female Twitter follower and says he has had inappropriate conversations with as many as six women on Facebook and Twitter over the past three years.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi called for an Ethics Committee investigation "to determine whether any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred."

During a tearful news conference on Monday, Weiner apologized to his wife, family, constituents and friends, and said he is "deeply ashamed" but does not plan to resign. He said he does not believe he broke the law.

He said he does not believe he broke the law.

Does the pervert know if any of his victims were underaged?

Hmmmmm....must be a reason for this..possibly to prevent more important ‘probes’ of Obama and his corrupt administration. We don’t need any ‘probes’..just an automatic censure and a vote to force him to resign.

Weiner needs to resign now. I am sick and tired of these sick, corrupt liars having access to national secrets and putting themselves in compromising positions.

He’s a proven liar.

He should be forced to resign congress, stripped of benefits, and prosecuted for the pornographer/pedophile he is, and used tax funded phones to do it with.

Pelosi's investigation has doubtlessly already reached it's conclusion. I predict it will be along the lines of: "...we regret any inconvenience but no wrongdoing was found. We applaud Anthony Weiner for his honesty and his efforts on behalf of his constituents."

It'll be yet another mockery of justice by the DemonRATS and their wicked witch of a "leader".

But not on the activity itself. If this was a Republican she would move 10 ton boulders and spare no expense to hound him out of office.

This is tiptoeing through the manure that feeds the tulips...

I guess lying on national teevee several times is no-big-deal. As long as he didn’t “break any laws” being a zero-character scumbag is A-OK.

I’m looking forward to the precise wording of the Pelosi team’s whitewash. That Wassermann beyotch is gonna have her hands full with this, too.

Mark my words — this thing is gonna hurt the ‘rats. Not at all among their base, but independents have seen the whole thing up close and it’s disgusting.

On the other hand, the ‘rats could cold-shoulder the boy; his ego and former press following will make that problematic too.

Had it been a Republican congressman, she would have called for his resignation.

Where was Pelosi when this first came to light?

Only now, after Weiner pulls his pant’s down in public, does Pelosi want a probe.

Best thing Boehner could do is to publicly call for an investigation by law enforcement to determine if Weiner committed any crimes (such as sexting to minors) and then decide whether the Ethics Committee should investigate Weiner afterwards.

It is a smoke screen. Notice none of the GOPers have called for an investigation, the ball less bunch of dopes they are.

Meanwhile, our house leader is playing golf with (.)bama soon, great. He will probably let (.)bama talk him out of his position while letting him win.

If Pelosi succeeds with this, everyone will be forced to shut up about it until the ethics investigation is complete . . . sometime in 2013.

Weiner has already confessed to enough wrong-doing to be removed from all positions of leadership. Remove him and let him run for office in 2012 under those conditions.

Heck, it’s a challenge for an MSM pseudojournalist to write a headline or piece about this CockTale Weenie without *accidentally* slipping in a pun or a double entendre! The jokes really ARE writing themselves!

This is not going to go away. Next, the pic of his naked dic will show up on several websites.

He made the claim that no government resources were used. That will be investigated. He most likely lied about that.

He said six women. If it turns out to be 12, another lie.

If any of them were underage, big problems.

The GOP needs to line up a third party Dem type candidate to run against him who is willing to put dic pics on negative campaign posters.

This gift will give and give and give.

I’d rather see Weiner NOT resign.
The only way he would ‘have to’ is if his behavior
redounds too negatively on the Dem party honchos, which
is why Pelosi is trying to pre-empt everyone and beat them
to the pass by calling for a probe to determine, in effect,
whether anything Weiner-related involved the use of taxpayer-funded Congressional computers. That of course is an irrelevancy, and a diversionary tactic only a Dem could appreciate.
No, I’d rather see him stay on, because it would be SO MUCH MORE FUN to watch him try, like Tiger Woods, to recapture half the ground he’s already lost by being the kind of guy we all knew he always was: a loudmouthed, immature, arrogant kind of demagogue, an apparent
heir apparent to the equally camera-hogging Chucky Schumer. Weiner has effectively neutered himself, all the more ironic since the photo in question was of his erect member sticking out of a pair of 8 dollar Hanes knit boxers. We know he was grooming himself to make a stab at being the next NYC Mayor——the best thing about his self-inflicted castration is that for as long as he’s in office
he’s going to have to be real quiet, tasteful, and sober.
Since I don’t think he has much appetite for this he may not run again.And that’s a GOOD THING, since I am but a few miles from NYCand have had to watch this guy UP CLOSE for as long as he’s been in politics.

“said he is “deeply ashamed” but does not plan to resign. “

Funny, if he had an R affiliation he’d be sent packing post haste.
Seems to me someone was sent packing due to sending shirtless pics of himself which were less worrisome than crotch shots...

OK, here goes:

“Conservatives have always questioned whether Wiener could cut the mustard . . . “

“Right Wing Conservatives appear to relish the trouble Wiener is in . . . “

“Wiener, a self-proclaimed Democratic ‘hot-dog,’ . . . .”

“The Media is attempting to link Wiener . . . . “

“Wiener, proclaimed by the GOP to be a “Brat” at “Worst” . . . “

DEMS NEVER RESIGN.
It’s part of their self-righteous mindset
that their sense of shame at their own “human, all-to-human”
behavior is NEVER outweighed by their mission to do “good stuff” for the “American People”.

She's just mad because the little pervert wouldn't follow her on Twitter.
