Weinergate Bombshell: New Woman Comes Forward Claiming Cache of Intimate Photos and Online Communications with Beleaguered Congressman
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.”‘It’s Me’: Rep. Weiner Sends Playful Photo to New Friend

More Weiner Messages to Young Girls? Evidence the Media Was Duped into Dropping the Investigation
There are new reasons to question whether Rep. Anthony Weiner sent DMs to young girls besides Gennette Nicole — and whether he sent Nicole more flirtatious DMs than just that one picture.Continue here.
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.
The Daily learns tweet originated from app that pol used the night pic was posted
As the world has attempted to make sense of Rep. Anthony Weiner’s claim that his Twitter account was hacked, a key clue has been missing: exactly how the notorious groin pic was posted online.The evidence is clear: Weiner sent the tweet
But according to data provided exclusively to The Daily from TweetCongress.org, a nonprofit website that captures each member of Congress’s Twitter feeds in real time, the shot seen round the world was transmitted using TweetDeck — a popular Adobe desktop application that links up with social networking sites. A review of Weiner’s Twitter stream from May 27, the day of the crotch pic, shows that Weiner had been posting only from TweetDeck — one of many ways to post messages to Twitter — that entire night.
How an analysis of the congressman's behavior caused me to change my mind
Let me start this post by saying something that has now become quite clear: U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner's (D-N.Y.) Twitter account was not hacked. He sent the image of his penis to a Twitter follower and has now engaged in a convoluted attempt to cover it up.Wasserman-Schultz on Weinergate: It's Okay, He's a Democrat
I make this argument not because I wish any ill on the congressman. (I personally don't think politicians should be judged on their sex lives, but solely on their performance in office.) Instead, I write this because it's the only conclusion I believe a reasonable person can reach when watching his behavior.
Further preface: I initially believed Weiner. It made sense to me that some right-winger hacked his account in a mean-spirited attack to discredit him personally. Knowing nothing more, I accepted this explanation at face value. But then I heard Weiner start to explain himself and everything changed. The more he talked, the more it became obvious that not only is the photo of him, but he sent it.
Earlier this week, DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz told CNN that Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) is dealing with "a personal matter." That "personal matter" includes not knowing "with certitude" whether or not the, er, picture that was tweeted to a 21 year old college student belongs to the Congressman.
Well, that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz should really get acquainted with this Debbie Wasserman-Schultz:Read more here.
This goes beyond Rep. Foley, it goes to the values of the Congressional leadership. These are not family values, these are not American values.
What was Wasserman-Schultz referring to in that 2006 quote? The behavior of Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL . . . are you watching those party labels?), who made advances towards 18 and 21 year old young men.
Rep. Anthony Weiner's car is registered in New York but way out of date
After a week of facing questions about lewd Twitter photos, Rep. Anthony Weiner Saturday had more explaining to do: why his Nissan Pathfinder has New York license plates but a 2007 registration sticker.UPDATE:
A photo of Weiner behind the wheel of his more than 20-year-old SUV appeared in Saturday's Daily News as he left his Washington home Friday night.
It had a New York license plate - US Congress 9 - but no sign of an inspection sticker in the windshield and what appeared to be an expired July 2007 registration sticker.
