In case you need a reminder of what happened with Rep. Weiner, and oh my gosh, I don't know how that could happen, here is a tidbit from The Hill:
[snip] Weiner has been embroiled in controversy since admitting he accidentally sent a lewd picture of himself to a woman in Seattle over Twitter. Weiner initially said his Twitter account had been hacked and did not admit he was the one who sent the photo for more than a week.
He admitted responsibility at a tearful New York news conference in which he also admitted to having had "inappropriate" correspondence with roughly six women over the internet over the past six years. Since the news conference, more embarrassing photos of Weiner have been made public. [snip] (Click here to read the rest.)
Admittedly, that is a sanitized version of what the past few weeks have involved, since there are some mighty, um, revealing photos of Rep. Weiner, taken in the House gym (>available at TMZ, if you really want to see them). Then there was the press conference of porn star, Ginger Lee, on Wednesday, in which she detailed how Rep. Weiner asked her to lie about their conversations.
I mean, really - how much of a scum must one be to have a PORN STAR come out looking better? Apparently, according to her press conference, she was all about discussing politics, and Weiner was all about discussing his, uh, um, well, his "package."
Yeah, Rep. Weiner definitely needs to resign.
I do feel sorry for his wife, Huma Abedin, who just returned from an overseas trip with Sec. Clinton, for whom she works as an aide. What a helluva thing to which to return, isn't it?
Plenty of folks will be discussing this today, but IMHO, Weiner's resignation is LONG overdue. How about you?
*UPDATE* Kirsten Powers, an old friend of Anthony Weiner, and short-term girlfriend, speaks out on Weiner's resignation:
It really does beg the question how so many in the Democratic Party can continue to support this man after the misogynistic, and predatory, manner by which he has conducted himself. Yet, they did... Copyright © 2011 by Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy
