    Creepy congressman Anthony Weiner tweeted with a 17-year-old high school girl - but he insists he kept his pants on. "She was not targeted in any way and did not receive any inappropriate messages or photos or anything from the congressman," a source close to the Delaware girl told the Daily News. "If she had, her family would have filed charges." The News is not identifying the teenager. That revelation came as Weiner got his first shoutout of support from a prominent Democrat - Harlem heavyweight Rep. Charlie Rangel - since his sexting scandal erupted.

    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...

    There is very little difference between Anthony Weiner and the rest of our permanent political class. The Democratic Party is riddled with sleaze. The Republicans are hopelessly impotent. Our politicians now deem themselves royalty, entitled to permanent power and privilege. They consider elections unpleasant distractions. They are tyrants more onerous than George III. Removing all of them is change that we can truly believe in. Weiner’s misfortune was that irrefutable evidence fell into the hands of people outside of the political establishment and the main stream media (MSM). The truth about Weiner could not be hidden in the way the...

    New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner maintained Thursday that he does not plan to resign his seat, despite growing calls from members of his own party for the seven-term congressman to step down in the wake of his admission that he conducted inappropriate online communications with at least six women. “I’m not,” Weiner told a reporter for the New York Post on Thursday when asked if he planned to resign. “I’m going to get back to work as best I can.” Weiner said that he is working on making amends with his wife, senior State Department aide Huma Abedin, who...

    Gennette Cordova said she did not even think the photo was real. It was nearly 9 p.m. on a Friday when Cordova, who was preparing to head out for the night with a friend, logged onto Twitter and discovered that Rep. Anthony Weiner had sent her a suggestive photo of himself in gray boxer briefs. "It didn't make any sense," Cordova, a 21-year-old college student in northwestern Washington state, said in her first extensive interview since Weiner confessed in a news conference Monday to sending her the photo. "I figured it must have been a fake." Cordova's experience with Weiner...

    Andrew Breitbart said he wouldn't release his final photo of Rep. Anthony Weiner, an X-rated close-up, because the congressman had owned up to his Internet affairs. But he'd hold into it, he said Tuesday, as "an insurance policy" in case Weiner tried to get revenge on the blogger. Unfortunately for Breitbart--and for Weiner--that policy no longer holds, because on Wednesday a pair of radio DJs seem to have leaked a photo of Breitbart displaying the money shot on his iPhone.

    Report: Twitter group warned girls about Weine Posted by Alex Sundby Conservatives on Twitter reportedly kept a close watch on which users New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner followed on the microblogging service and even discouraged some "schoolgirls" from forming a relationship with the congressman in the weeks before his admission of engaging in lewd online relationships with six women. The New York Times published in its print editions Wednesday an article on the group that operated under the label #bornfreecrew. The group's leader was the same user who discovered the lewd photo that Weiner mistakenly sent publicly to 21-year-old...

    Anthony Weiner, the US congressman who lied about lewd online exchanges with female admirers, was mired in further controversy on Tuesday, as women alleged he used his office to carry out the affairs. The married New York Democrat was under intense pressure as the reason he gave for not resigning – that he kept the sexual messages and pictures separate from his work – was challenged. A Las Vegas Blackjack dealer claimed he had called her for phone sex from a congressional line, while a pornographic actress alleged he offered to have someone from his "team" help her prepare misleading...

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said Tuesday that Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) should resign in the wake of his admission that he was involved in online relationships with multiple women and initially lied about having mistakenly sent a lewd photo out on his Twitter feed. Asked if Weiner should step down after a local Chamber of Commerce luncheon in Louisa, Virginia, Cantor said that "Congressman Weiner and his constituents will make that decision. I certainly don't condone his activity and I think he should resign." "We've got a lot of serious challenges going on in this country and a...

    Rep. Anthony Weiner encouraged a porn star to lie about their on-line relationship and offered her the help of his public relations team, according to a report on Tuesday. Weiner sent emails to former X-rated performer Ginger Lee – to whom he’d previously acknowledged sending innocuous messages via Twitter – coaching her to deny that they had been communicating, reported TMZ, which obtained the messages and says the two had exchanged “scores of sexual emails over a long period of time.” “The key is to have a short, thought out statement that tackles the top line questions and then refer...

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,...

    n early 2007 my office did a study that found that over 85% of registered sex offenders in New York City live less than five blocks from schools, and 670 sex offenders live within just two blocks. Some offenders are even closer, permanently residing less than 500 feet away from unwitting parents, educators and children. Along with several colleagues in Congress, we introduced & passed the KIDS (Keeping the Internet Devoid of Sexual Predators) Act of 2007, a bill to require sex offenders to register their e-mail and instant message addresses with the National Sex Offender Registry. The “Kids Act’...

    A new woman has come forward with what she claims are photographs, chats, and emails with Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY). These appear to undermine severely Rep. Weiner’s explanations that he was the victim of a “prank” or a “hack.” The detailed new information suggests that the Brooklyn- and Queens-based representative and the young woman in question were involved in an online, consensual relationship involving the mutual exchange of intimate photographs. BigGovernment.com and BigJournalism.com were approached regarding this information more than a week prior to the separate, independent event of Friday, May 27, 2011, when a link to the now-infamous “gray...

    The other day, Tommy Christopher published an interesting article regarding two underage girls who had claimed to have incriminating DMs from Anthony Weiner. Christopher called the girls “Betty” and “Veronica” and said that they had admitted to him that they had lied. That may be . . . but there are some aspects of their claims (and those of their parents) that I think merit some examination. (...)

    Debbie Does Dullest: DNC Chair Insists Weinergate Is a 'Personal Matter' Other Dems Shouldn't Talk About By Tim Graham | June 04, 2011 | 22:08 New Democratic National Committee boss Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is not acting like a feminist in the Weinergate scandal. In TV interviews, she’s been shutting the anchors down with no-comments ("it's a personal matter"). But what if Weiner did what’s alleged? Wouldn’t a liberal feminist suggest that’s objectionable and not just a “private matter”? Take Wasserman-Schultz at the end of an interview on CBS’s Early Show on Friday morning: CHRIS WRAGGE: I know you were born in...

    She's standing by her man -- but that act seems to be wearing thin. Rep. Anthony Weiner's humiliated wife sheepishly showed her face at a Washington event yesterday, keeping a stiff upper lip amid the swirling scandal surrounding her husband's tawdry Twitter photo. Huma Abedin, 34, briefly hesitated at the State Department ballroom door before working up the courage to go in -- but she left after just five minutes and steered clear of her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Kramer walked in to Weiner’s office, announced herself as being from CBS 2 in New York City and said she’d like to see the congressman. Those few words created quite the stir. Doors slammed and people pretended she wasn’t there. Finally, brave press secretary David Arnold arrived. The following is the exchange Kramer had with him: Kramer: “All I want is for him to say something to his constituents, the people who have to vote for him.”...
