Anthony Weiner Admits Posting Lewd Pictures on Twitter [POLL]
Well, we all knew it was coming. Congressman Anthony Weiner admitted to posting lewd pictures on Twitter. What a moron. On Monday Weiner said the following according to CBS New York:
“Last Friday night I tweeted a photograph of myself that I intended to send as direct message as part of a joke to a woman in Seattle. Once I realized I posted it to Twitter, I panicked, I took it down and said that I had been hacked. I then continued with that story to stick to that story which was a hugely regrettable mistake.”
Weiner apologized to the Seattle student, who was on the receiving end of the tweet. “To be clear, the picture was of me and I sent it. I am deeply sorry for the pain this has caused my wife Huma and our family, and my constituents, my friends, supporters and staff,” Weiner said.
In addition, the congressman said that “over the past few years I have engaged in several inappropriate conversations conducted over Twitter, Facebook, email, and occasionally on the phone with women I have met online.”
Weiner said he “exchanged messages and photos of an explicit nature with about six women over the last three years.” He said “most” of the communications took place before his marriage, but admitted some took place afterward.
Again, what an idiot. We will have much more on this during the show, but we want to know if you think he should resign. Comment and vote in today’s LFN Poll of the Day.
