Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

Someone hacks your internet accounts with the intent of ruining your career. Do you call the police or lawyer up?

Quote:
Weiner cops out, hires att'y

Just because a hacker broke into his Twitter account and sent a bawdy crotch photo to a co-ed is no reason to get the police involved, Rep. Anthony Weiner said yesterday.

Instead, "we have retained an attorney who is going to give us advice on this," the six-term Queens Democrat told The Post outside his Forest Hills home.

"[The incident] was a prank. It was intended to distract. I'm not going to let it do it."

Capitol police told The Post that neither Weiner nor his staff has filed reports regarding the apparent breach of Internet security that set the blogosphere rumor mill afire about the liberal Beltway star over the weekend.

Notice he's now using the term "prank". Apparently, hacking a Congressman's internet accounts isn't a real crime. It's more like toilet papering your neighbor's house. No big deal.

Perhaps he had a way too simple password and is afraid to look like the idiot that would make him be.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

Is anyone capable of 1.) remaining faithful to their wives anymore and 2.) controlling themselves sexually?

Not those who have power and influence.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

If the original tweeted weiner pic was not Weiner's weiner, then Weiner should tweet a picture of his real weiner. If the weiners don't match, he's innocent.

I don't know. Is anyone capable of seeing this is another breitbart falsehood?

I highly doubt it was Breitbart who tweeted his junk, passing it off as Weiner.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

Weiner gave one of the worst press conferences I've ever seen. This guy is pretty media savvy. I'm surprised he didn't come up with a better response. Wolf Blitzer seemed pretty shocked too.

Hacking a Congressman's online account is similar to heckling or throwing a pie.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

Too many coincidences in Weiner's tail
Quote:
Rep. Weiner is a man of national prominence, a rising star in the Democratic Party, frequently on TV, a past and likely future candidate for mayor. He knows and is known by thousands of movers, shakers, members of the press and politicians on the city, state and national levels.

Yet, as of yesterday, he was following fewer than 200 others and, with all those famous folks to choose from, one of the few he followed was Cordova, a 21-year-old college student who lives nearly 3,000 miles away in Bellingham,Wash.

Run that though your head for a second and at the same time remember two important facts about Twitter:

1. If two people follow each other on Twitter, they can send private messages unseen by others.

2. The difference between a direct message, seen by only the recipient, and a public tweet, seen by the world, is a single character.
Just when I was believing there was nothing to this story!

Interesting.

I never use twitter so I a wasn't sure if there was such a thing as private tweets. Without the ability to send private tweets it made no sense that Rep Weiner would post this on his twitter account. But it seems this was a mistweet

Sooo mistweeted...


Sorry. Had to!


(I don't use twitter either so I also wasn't aware of private messages there)

If his account was hacked, the hacker could just have easily made the same mistake.

The hacker also could have 'followed' this girl, since followers don't need to be approved in any way like a facebook friend request.

And if it is true that Weiner was following only a few hundred people, why would he make his mistress one of them?

Entirely possible he is guilty I suppose, but the simple facts presented in that article don't really change anything or suddenly make his story less believable. I mean really, the article may as well have said, "...and if the two have each others' email addresses, they could be sending messages unseen by others"!

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

It's gotten to where it's easier to name dudes who have not sent pictures of their junk to someone. Not surprising, since every media form in human history always ends up being primarily used to make images of men's junk.

Man that CNN press conference thing he did was bizarre.

I think the weirdo actually did it.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

I like Weiner's feistiness. It's needed in a party of spineless cowards.

But the dude is guilty and that CNN clip is so entertaining. I love watching politicians squirm and try and wriggle out of their bullshit stories. You are a United States Congressman. It IS possible to conduct yourself with decorum. It really is.

And what makes it even funnier -- ask any female and I bet 99% of them would say that they would rather NOT EVER RECEIVE a picture of a man's penis. Women's brains are not wired that way.

So that's why I find Weinergate so funny. The stupid stunt he pulled probably did absolutely nothing to turn her on!

Anyone have a link to the CNN clip?

You think too highly of elected officials. The American voter does not demand (and hold them accountable) character and integrity from their politicians... only that they have the correct letter after their name.
