    A porn star said on Wednesday that embattled Representative Anthony Weiner asked her to lie about their e-mail relationship in the hope that an Internet sex scandal surrounding him would die down. Ginger Lee, who is also a stripper, said her exchanges with the Democratic lawmaker from New York began with political discussions of abortion rights and healthcare but Weiner kept trying to sexualize the conversation. She said she never reciprocated his lewd messages. Weiner denied for more than a week that he sent a close-up photo of himself in boxer briefs to a woman in Seattle on May 28,...

    To their credit, most Democratic Party leaders have (finally) called for New York Rep. Anthony Weiner's resignation. But among liberal commentators and millions of other Americans, there is a great deal of flawed thinking about whether Weiner should resign.The two most common arguments offered against his resigning have been that (1) what Weiner did was not illegal and (2) it was not even as bad as an extramarital affair because he never met, let alone had physical contact with, any of the women to whom he sent naked and semi-naked photos of himself.The argument's entirely beside the point. The point...

    First came the crotch photos. Then came the lying and denial. Now, Rep. Anthony Weiner is seeking treatment for his misdeeds, leaving Washingtonians asking: treatment for what? Based on the New York Democrat’s behavior, which the congressman says includes sending lewd messages and images over the Internet to six women in the past three years, experts interviewed by POLITICO said he could suffer from an array of conditions that could merit treatment, including narcissism, obsessive-compulsive disorder or even some variety of sexual addiction. None of the possibilities comes with a silver-bullet treatment that delivers quick results — meaning that if...

    In what could be the final straw for Rep. Anthony Weiner’s political career, new embarrassing photos are surfacing — including one showing Weiner dressed in women's clothing. Anthony, Weiner, Scandal, sexting, bra, pantiesThe photos, said to have been taken when Weiner was a college student, show him dressed as a woman in a black bra, panties and leotards. The explicit photos are expected to touch off a bidding war involving a number of media outlets. “These new photos make Weiner’s current scandal even more disturbing,” said one industry source.

    By now you've probably seen enough -- literally -- of Anthony Weiner, the New York City Congressman embroiled in a scandal involving online relationships with several women, including his sending suggestive photos taken from the House of Representatives gym. Members of both parties have called on Weiner to resign. The raunchy emails from the married Congressman aren't terribly shocking. Several studies have estimated that more than half of men and women are unfaithful to their spouses. The public outrage has stemmed in my opinion not from Weiner's tweets, but his deception. Rep. Weiner lied to reporters, instructed others to lie...

    Rep. Anthony Weiner says he's taking a leave of absence to get treatment. Is he doing it to get help or just to save face?Rep. Anthony Weiner says he's taking a leave of absence, and he's getting treatment. You can add him to the long list of political sex scandals. So, does he really want the help or is it just a PR stunt? "I think this is a prank to make fun of my name. When you're named 'Weiner,' that happens a lot," said Weiner, just days before admitting to sending suggestive photos to women on the internet. The...

    A defiant Rep. Anthony Weiner will not resign and will instead seek treatment even as a the top leaders of the Democratic Party abandoned him en masse Saturday after it was revealed that he had communicated online with a 17-year-old Delaware girl. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the party’s top campaign chiefs — Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) — all called on Weiner to resign in statements released within minutes of each other. But Weiner has ignored those calls and announced Saturday afternoon that he’s seeking...

    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...

Two officers from the New Castle County Police Department arrived at the girl's home around 4:30 p.m. and asked to speak with the girl's mother about the daughter's contact with Weiner. Another officer appeared at the home a short time later. A FoxNews.com reporter was at the home when the police arrived. The girl, whose name is being withheld because she is a minor, told FoxNews.com, "I'm...

    RALEIGH, N.C. — Former presidential candidate John Edwards wants a judge to delay a planned deposition in the privacy lawsuit filed by his mistress over a purported sex tape. Edwards, who was indicted last week on four counts of violating federal campaign finance laws and one count each of criminal conspiracy and making a false statement, said answering questions under oath in the civil suit would violate his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Rielle Hunter filed suit last year against former Edwards campaign aide Andrew Young, alleging that he took from her sensitive materials, including a reputed sex tape showing...

    national journal ^ | 6-9-11 | Reeve
    Anthony Weiner's scandal does not require understanding complicated lobbying laws (Jack Abramoff) or how kickbacks were funneled through labyrinthine layers of bureaucracy (Duke Cunningham), nor does it depend on a partisan view of an issue, like hiring a 24-year-old with no finance experience to remake the entire stock exchange of Iraq. No, it centers on something simple that everyone can relate to: boners on the Internet. And yet, pundits' analysis of Weinergate is still highly dependent on their ideological viewpoint, with liberals defending the New York Democrat even as his hacking claim looked less than credible. Over the past week,...

    Ramesh, as an antidote to Maureen Dowd’s take, here’s Weiner’s former girlfriend Kirsten Powers. When the Twit hit the fan, Kirsten received certain assurances from him about his innocence and, based on those, went out on Fox and elsewhere and defended him. Unlike too many my-Democrat-right-or-wrong types, she’s done with him: As I have recovered from the shock of seeing an old friend’s life unravel and have had time to get my mind around the extensive and sociopathic lying in which he engaged, there seems to be no other choice than for him to step aside and stop hurting his family, friends, and...

    New York Rep. Anthony Weiner says in a statement that he sent explicit photos of himself. He made the statement Wednesday as an X-rated photo that he purportedly took of himself turned up on the Internet. The photo, which shows a man's genitals, was published by a website after conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart showed it to the hosts of Sirius XM radio's Opie & Anthony Show.
