Weiner Thrown On The Grill [Updated Below]
Jeez Louise! I go offline for twenty-fours hours and I miss the story about the biggest cock-up by a Congressional member is quite some time.
As Stacy McCain reported last evening:
New York Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner allegedly sent an alleged photo of his alleged penis to an alleged woman via Twitter.
The photo shows a man in gray undershorts with a bulging erection. Weiner is claiming he was the victim of Internet hackers, and I think we should believe him.
Because his penis is probably much smaller than that.
Is someone trying to give
Peter, er, Andrew Weiner the shaft? Is someone trying to make him a tool? Or was this attack willie nilly? Was someone trying to ding his dong? Make a real putz out of the bloviating Bolshe? Or is Weiner lying and giving us a cock and bull story?
I just asking questions here…that are waaay too easy to write.
These posts are also well-worth reading, none of which are that
-DaTechGuy has been doing some investigating.
-Ran is enjoying this too much.
Talk about hard news….
UPDATE on 30MAY at 0013…
-The woman on the receiving end of Weiner’s wiener pic has issued a statement and Stacy reports on it and the new questions it raises.
-Donald Douglas has more info here.
-Dan Collins has a very useful aggregation up.
–So does Vicki over at the Frugal Cafe.
UPDATE on 30MAY at 1925…
-More reportage from Stacy McCain:
-It seems to me that, after reading this posting of his, DaTechGuy should be awarded an honorary law degree:
I don’t claim to be a law expert if I had a client that wanted advice on what to do if someone hacked my account, the legal conversation I would have would be in two sentences:
“Call the police, that will be $1000.”
-Jim Hoft has a partial list, with pictures, of some of the, shall we say, pretty young things Weiner followed on Twitter.
-DrewM does a bang-up job subbing for a petered-out Ace.
-The Pagan Temple looked into some of the technical aspect of Twittering and offers an easy-to-understand report. Bravo.
-Per usual, Vicki has got a damn fine aggregation brewing over at the Frugal Cafe.
