Weiner Tweets His Junk

Funny story going around the blogosphere today. Last night a tweet from Dem. Rep. Anthony Weiner to @GennetteNicole (not his wife) contained a picture of his package. The tweet was quickly deleted, along with the Gennette's twitter and facebook accounts.

Quote:
Did Anthony Weiner Tweet a Picture of His Weiner?

Did liberal hero and would-be Mayor of New York Rep. Anthony Weiner (D - N.Y.) Tweet a picture of his own, underwear-clad erection last night? Conservative bloggers sure seem to hope so!

The pic, according to BigGovernment.com writer "Publius", was posted last night to Weiner's official account on yFrog, the Twitter picture service, and sent out on his Twitter feed. It was apparently quickly deleted, but not before Publius grabbed what he says is a screenshot of the yFrog page. (The original Tweet still exists on archiving site Tweet Congress.)

Weiner quickly Tweeted that his Facebook was hacked, which even though the picture was, as far as we can tell, not posted to Facebook seems to be a reference to the dickshot Tweet; today, he Tweeted "Touche Prof Moriarity. More Weiner Jokes for all my guests! #Hacked!" Stranger things have happened, we suppose!

But conservative bloggers are positive that the picture is evidence that Weiner is having an affair, and doing their best to track down the woman to whom the Tweet was addressed they seem to think she's a journalism student in Seattle who once referred to Weiner as "her boyfriend" on Twitter. (Needless to say, many men and women refer to Anthony Weiner as their boyfriend. Aspirationally, we suppose.) She's since deleted her Twitter, and what's purported to be her Facebook account, maybe because she was exposed as Weiner's mistress, or maybe because she or a friend was responsible for the hack.

All he would have to do is post a picture of his face because he is just a big dick head

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

Would it be a federal crime to hack a Congressman's official twitter account?

Depends, how did you obtain access and is it really his junk or yours?

It would be a Federal crime to hack anyone's Twitter account, so yes.

#hacked

I'm assuming he's reported the incident to the FBI, because he really wants them to get to the bottom of this.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

And she speaks out, basically debunking the whole thing:

http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/..._from_rep.html

Quote:
Statement from Gennette Cordova, student who was sent lewd Twitter photo from Rep. Weiner's account
BY GENNETTE CORDOVA
Sunday, May 29th 2011, 7:38 PM

Friday evening I logged onto Twitter to find that I had about a dozen new mentions in less than an hour, which is a rare occurrence. When I checked one of the posts that I had been tagged in I saw that it was a picture that had supposedly been tweeted to me by Congressman Anthony Weiner.

The account that these tweets were sent from was familiar to me; this person had harassed me many times after the Congressman followed me on Twitter a month or so ago. Since I had dealt with this person and his cohorts before I assumed that the tweet and the picture were their latest attempts at defaming the Congressman and harassing his supporters.

Annoyed, I responded with something along the lines of "are you f***ing kidding me?" and "I've never seen this. You people are sick." I blocked their accounts, made my page private, and let the matter drop, expecting them to eventually do the same.

Within about an hour, however, I realized that I had grossly underestimated the severity of the situation that I had somehow become a part of.

The last 36 hours have been the most confusing, anxiety-ridden hours of my life. I've watched in sheer disbelief as my name, age, location, links to any social networking site I've ever used, my old phone numbers and pictures have been passed along from stranger to stranger.

My friends have received phone calls from people claiming to be old friends of mine, attempting to obtain my contact information. My siblings have received tweets that are similar in nature. I began taking steps, though not quickly enough, to remove as much personal information from the Internet as possible.

Not because I "was exposed as Weiner's mistress" or because I "was responsible for the hack," as Gawker has suggested. I removed my information because I, believe it or not, do not enjoy being harassed or being the reason that my loved ones are targets of harassment.

I have seen myself labeled as the "Femme Fatale of Weinergate," "Anthony Weiner's 21-year-old coed mistress" and "the self-proclaimed girlfriend of Anthony Weiner."


All of this is so outlandish that I don't know whether to be pissed off or amused, quite frankly. This is the reality of sharing information online in the 21st century. Things that I never imagined people would care about are now being plastered all over blog sites, including pictures of me from when I was 17 and tweets that have been taken completely out of context. I tweeted once (it was reported that I said it twice) that "I wonder what my boyfriend @RepWeiner is up to."

I am a 21-year-old college student from Seattle. I have never met Congressman Weiner, though I am a fan. I go to school in Bellingham where I spend all of my time; I've never been to New York or to DC. The point I am trying to make is that, contrary to the impression that I apparently gave from my tweet, I am not his girlfriend. Nor am I the wife, girlfriend or mistress of Barack Obama, Ray Allen or Cristiano Ronaldo, despite the fact that I have made similar assertions about them via Twitter.

There have never been any inappropriate exchanges between Anthony Weiner and myself, including the tweet/picture in question, which had apparently been deleted before it reached me.
I cannot answer the questions that I do not have the answers to. I am not sure whether or not this letter will alleviate any future harassment. I also do not have a clear understanding as to how or why exactly I am involved in this fiasco. I do know that my life has been seriously impacted by speculation and faulty allegations. My reputation has been called into question by those who lack the character to report the facts.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

I would say denying rather than debunking.

EDIT: I noticed CBS fell for the deceptive wording in the statement that suggests the original tweet came from a "person [who] had harassed" Cordova. I believe she is referring to an account that retweeted the one sent from Weiner's account. It is possible that she didn't check her account until after the original was deleted and so she never saw it.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

What's been debunked? She claims they weren't having an affair, and I'm guessing that's probably true. But that doesn't explain the tweeted crotchshot from Weiner's account.

Weiner claims his account was hacked. That should be fairly easy to prove. If it's true, then the hacker should be tracked down, prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and sued for damages.

The title of this thread alone was worth the price of admission.

Although it could be taken as a double entendre.

Re: Weiner Tweets His Junk

A twitter account is far too important to delete unless you are 100% guilty. I demand a Congressional Inquiry, to be performed in full view of the public for the sake of transparency, via tweets.
