Skip to comments.#Weinergate update: Coed being scrubbed from Google.
Posted on 05/28/2011 10:11:45 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
OK, I admit it: when I heard this morning that Rep. Weiner had supposedly sent a coed a picture of his (encased) genitalia via Twitter, I assumed that somebody was just having his or her little joke by hacking into the man’s account and indicating that Weiner is, as I put it, one of the bigger d*cks in Congress. But that was before Ace of Spades demolished this argument utterly (H/T: Neil Stevens) (remember, folks [and bad Moe!]: identity theft is a crime), so now I am taking this seriously as a possible scandal, and I found something interesting going on. Somebody’s scrubbing the recipient’s Internet presence, even as we speak.
The coed’s name (one Gennette Cordova) was (obviously) easily accessible, thanks to the wonders of screenshots (such as the ones done by Doug Ross, via The Other McCain), so it was a fairly trivial exercise to do a search for her name, prior to May 2011. Turns out she’s a writer for her local college: examples here and here and here. Except that Cordova’s name is no longer on those articles: compare this to this, and this to this… and compare this to this, which has an extra layer of scrubbing going on. That last one is most interesting, because it’s the one that Lee Stranahan over at Patterico noted was an article apparently written by Cordova that talked about how sites like Twitter and Facebook would allow people opportunities to meet their ‘celebrities.’
Whether or not those sites also allowed one specific person an opportunity to meet one particular, specifically-directed set of celebrity genitals at one remove is still up in the air: but I am very much wondering why it was suddenly necessary to remove Ms. Cordova’s name from all of her article bylines.

By the way: Weiner has apparently not actually done anything about his account being hacked, past making jokes about somebody committing identity-theft on a sitting Congressman’s online presence. Odd, huh
Ted “The Swimmer” Kennedy could have told Weiner’s crew a few things about damage control:
“Errr-ah just go after and intimidate her family into shutting up!”
Priceless! Hassan chop if true!
Of course, being a “Rat there is a good chance this will blow over with nothing ever being done about it.
With a choice like that, he's gotta be a politician.
I predict that this guy is such a dick that his name will become synonymous with the male organ.
If Weiner took & sent the picture himself, wait till his wife see’s it. She’s gonna know he sent it. What wife doesn’t know the kind of underwear her husband wears and how he looks in it? He may have to duck and cover when he goes home. LOL
Hillary Clinton, Dina McGreevey, Elizabeth Edwards; RAT wives 'stand by their man'.
I saw the picture. His account was either hacked or it was a potato in his draws. No way that was real.
And, if Google scrubs it, it will still be available on Yandex.
Ab initio, it's just one transposition therefrom.
No I think that was really his weiner. And it wasn’t big. It was supposedly ‘at attention.’ And it tilted to the left.
amazing how fast the scrubbing occurred.
...yet often when someone points out liberal coverups, they get called a conspiracy theorist (or worse).
this shows clearly what they can do, and how quickly, even for a relative minor reason.
...and remember how long even the media covered up John Edwards. (but we all know it’s impossible to secret for so long, with so many people...)
i think it is incredibly naive at best, to underestimate what people like Soros and other liberals are capable of doing.
Right. He could always co-host a show with Spitzer on CNN.
here is a lot more scrubbing info:
Weiner’s wiener, hotdog? prick?
Actually, a lot of cash was spread around to help cover up Teddy’s manslaughter beef. If Algore’s internet had been available, things might have turned out differently.
I think he should change his name to “Tony Savage.”
Between this scrubbing of the woman from Google and the joking denials to the press, I’m starting to believe he did this.
