WeinerGate update

If you were one of the people giving Rep. Weiner the benefit of doubt when the whole WeinerGate fiasco came a calling, you are seriously going to have to rethink that now that more wiener pictures are coming to light.

Weinergate is getting bigger and bigger. Another woman has come forward to RadarOnline.com and Star magazine and provided a sexting exchange with embattled New York Representative Anthony Weiner. The woman says she has 200 sexually explicit messages from Weiner from a Facebook account the Democratic politician no longer uses.

RadarOnline.com and Star magazine verified that the account where the messages originated does belong to Weiner (see below). He told the woman he had a “ridiculous bulge” in his shorts and asked if she “wanna see” it — almost three months before a photo of an erect penis in tight fitting briefs appeared in the pol’s Twitter stream.

It was obvious to me that this sanctimonious democrat prick was hiding something as soon as he refused to call for an investigation. If there was any chance at all his system was hacked, he would have made a huge deal out of it, demanded an investigation, and prayed like hell he could blame some conservative, or better yet, republicans, for it all. Instead he played turtle.

Don’t worry though. The MSM isn’t going to hound him out of office. Instead they will simply say that it is about sex, and give him a pass – this will all be free publicity – and Weiner will keep on molesting young nubile women. Now if he had a (R) next to his name, he would have been forced to resign by now for sure, and crucified if he had not resigned, but made such a spurious and ludicrous claim as his account being hacked, and got exposed by other evidence of constantly doing stuff like this

Mrs. Weiner was unavailable for comments. At least the picture confirmed Weiner is a lefty.

UPDATE: Looks like all the people that accused Breibart of lying or making this up will have to apologize as I hear Weiner did when Breibart took over the presser where Weiner admitted to sending the picture and then, erm, trying to disseminate the truth. It looks like Weiner also won’t do the honorable thing on his own, despite speculations, even on the left, that he should. No shame, no continence.

Enjoy Brebart getting some payback. I sure did.

    Looks like he saw the writing on the wall and owned up to it and others. Of course he’s using the “I did wrong” defense and not resigning.

    So let’s see. Cyber-cheated, if not actual cheated. Got caught. Lied about it. Tried to blame companies that could have seen actual impact on their business from his lies about them. Only owned up to it when more women started to come forward.

    … But he should still have the trust of his constituency and will hold his seat and almost certainly seek reelection.

    Of course the really fucking sad thing is he’ll probably go on to be one of those 110-year-old congress farts that is a tottering skeleton propped up in their congressional seat. And on and on until he finally collapses into dust in the middle of session, his defenders will be sneering “It’s just sex!”, conveniently ignoring all the lying that’s the actual issue.

    I sincerely hope he at least sees multiple lawsuits against him out of this, as it’s unlikely there will be any other comeuppance.

    That’s the usual excuse for why Dem scandals are so often declared “no big deal”, but it leaves out that Democrats are just as ready to tout family values, churchgoing ways, and protecting the children, but somehow aren’t held to it like Republicans are. Though I guess it’s an interesting admission by Democrats that basically boils down to “Yeah, but when you guys say that stuff, you actually MEAN it!”

    Republicans aren’t held to that standard because they’re the only ones that spout the family values line, they’re held to it because they’re the only ones expected to live up to their own rhetoric.

    Just trying to put some perspective on the double standard. It needs to go. Either all politicians can be scumbags or none can be scumbags. It shouldn’t be that demcorats can do whatever they want and get away with it while republicans need to put saints to shame.

    It used to be we expected our politicians to have some sort of common sense and some sense of decency. Now we call the republicans that advocate we should have some sense of decency hypocrites for not being perfect and demand their prompt resignation long before they are proven guilty, while giving democrats a pass, because we simply all accept that they are obviously lying scumbags that only pontificate on the fact patriotism means you need to give them more money, let them control your choices and life because you are to stupid to do so on your own, and demand we live like paupers, to save the planet or some such nonsense, while they live like nobility. Anyone defending this status quo deserves to be used and abused by these lying scumbags.

    I do wish, however, the Democrats would get called out when they are being hypocritical, such as when they say they stand for he little guy and sell us down the river to special interests or claim to be standing up to big insurance while they pass a healthcare bill written by them. But I digress.

    Me, I would like politicians that lie and are scumbags, hypocritical or not, party affiliation not-withstanding, to be shamed out of a job. And that’s the point: democrats ‘ ambitions far exceeds any shame they might have, if they have any. The media and fools that vote for them and support their agenda thus protect them and allow them to carry on, while they use any and all chances to screw over the opposition. Allowing these scumbags to get off on this weak defense is naïve. Don’t wish: call them out. Until we the people demand better we won’t get it Hal.

    To be fair, the investigation she is calling for will be a bit more wider is scope:

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called Monday for the House ethics committee to investigate whether Rep. Anthony Weiner violated any of the chamber’s rules.

    Pelosi said she wanted a determination as to whether “any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred.”

    Weiner was supposed to be one of the fresh new brand of “net savvy” politicians. As such he should have seen again and again how Twitter and Facebook are the downfall of dozens of public figures. And he not only got involved with them, he not only decided to cheat, but he combined the two?

Embarrassed because one of our leaders is such a lech and embarrassed because the MSM and all blogs left and right trip over themselves to cover Underweargate, and mostly embarrassed because once again America takes one more step on that road to irrelevance. Given our situation, a little comedic relief in the form of some pervert congressman and his inappropriate tweeting (I think that is the first time I have ever used that word before, I need a shower) proceeds a nice distraction (I guess) but do we have to keep making ourselves the laughing stock of the world?

    So let’s see. Cyber-cheated, if not actual cheated. Got caught. Lied about it. Tried to blame companies that could have seen actual impact on their business from his lies about them. Only owned up to it when more women started to come forward.

    For me, I never had an issue with the sex/attempt of sex/ fishing for sex. You can not claim your for allowing 2 consenting adults to do what they want while in private (a’la Homosexuals), and then attempt faux outrage that a Senator attmepted to troll for some booty. At the brass tacks level, Weiners infedility is no different.

    If that was all that was done, i dont have an issue with the entire event, other than the comic relief due to his name and the circumstances (Weiner sent a weiner picture). But he didnt stop at lying to the press (note he was smart enough to not go to the police, and avoided lying to the cops). Last Thursday, when a New York Times reporter attempted to interview him, Weiner (or his office, at that point no different), called the Capitol Police on Kramer after the questions got to uncomfortable.

    To me, thats when it slipped from “Just Sex” to an abuse of Power.

    The problem with these kind of issues isnt the Sex, its the means used to hide/negate/lessen the impact from the affair. I dont care that he was attempting to have an affair, I didnt care about Bill and the BJ. I do have a problem with abusing the office, and the inherent power that comes with it, and the effects/affects it has on our Republic Democracy.

    All the talking heads aretalking about this, including us, and the common theme from the listeners/callers/blog visitors is “of course he lied about it, all Senators/Congressmen lie”. HOLY SHIT thats acceptable?

    Three months away from his expected retirement, President Chirac has for the first time confirmed his appetite for extraconjugal affairs, saying that he loved many women in his lifetime “as discreetly as possible”.

    The 74-year-old French President offered a glimpse of his busy love life in a new book in which he reviews his twelve-year presidency and four decades as a senior politician. He also talked of the chronic mental illness of Laurence, his 48-year-old daughter, which he called “the drama of my life”.

    Like many French politicians, Mr Chirac has enjoyed a reputation as a Don Juan character. The late François Mitterrand, his predecessor, revealed an illegitimate daughter and secret second household before he left office in 1995.

    The only important thing to know is that said Laurence enjoyed free health care, Americans don’t, which begets sick and unhappy “bastard” children.

    Mr Chirac had contempt for Valéry Giscard d’Estaing. He gives a mixed review to Nicolas Sarkozy, the former protégé who has taken over the leadership of his Union for a Popular Majority and is the favourite to win the presidency.

    Mr Sarkozy was talented but too liberal and pro-American, he said. Mr Chirac also expanded on his dislike for the bullying nature of the US. The 2003 Iraq invasion was an example. “I told Bush 36 times that he was committing a monumental error,” he said.

    Europe has all the answers. How do the enlightened women figure into it all?

    Chirac has had party militants, secretaries, all those with whom he spent five busy minutes.
    “My wife has constantly taught me that there were people who were suffering and this has to be taken into account,” Chriac said.
    Mrs Chirac, who has emerged in recent years as a force in her own right, said that it was rare to hear such praise from him. “It is the first time that my husband has brought up . . . our life as a couple.”

He gets to claim there was an investigation and he was exonerated (focusing on the vaguery of what was investigated and what he was exonerated of to take thoughts off of what he actually did), and the Dems can claim “We don’t softball our own!

    Sho nuff, the surname “Wiener” (German: “Viennese, from/of Vienna”) is a common Jewish name. “Weiner” literally means “cryer”). The photo gaffe was his genes talking, his Dem-like horse sense does this

    Weiner is an advocate of the United States National Health Care Act, which expands Medicare to all Americans. He has remarked that while Medicare has a 4% overhead rate, private insurers put 30% of their customer’s money into profits and overhead instead of into health care.
    “Make no mistake about it, every single Republican I have ever met in my entire life is a wholly owned subsidiary of the insurance industry.”

    Done. End of story.

    Weiners wife Huma M. Abedin is an American aide to United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton who served as traveling chief of staff and “body woman” during Clinton’s campaign for the Democratic nomination in the 2008 presidential election.

    Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Her father was of Indian descent and was an Iranian Studies scholar who died when she was 17 years old, and her Pakistani-born mother is a professor in Saudi Arabia.[1] At the age of two, her family relocated to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Abedin returned to the United States to attend George Washington University.

    Huma Abedin began working as an intern for the White House in 1996 and landed an assignment with the First Lady. She currently works for Clinton at the State Department

    Weiner said he had revealed his online relationships to his wife before their marriage.

    There is a mountain of evidence. It was not too long ago that the left demanded a republican resign for allegedly engaging in normal gay behavior. That you are not aware of it or purposely ignore it to keep arguing the inarguable, and to accuse us pointing out not just the double standard but demand it be done away with, of trying to play the victim, isn’t my fault.

    Give me a name and I’ll look it up.

    No CM, I want the double standard to stop. But then again, its obvious you don’t,

    How have I made that obvious?

    …and you are desperately flailing at everything to make the argument about anyone but the scumbags and the double standard.

    I’m flailing at everything to defend a double standard? Where? WTF are you talking about?

    Totally not surprised, since you are a leftist, and its obvious leftists only see bias when the media isn’t parroting what they want to hear.

    Sorry, that makes no sense whatsoever. However, by making such a generalisation you’ve futher underlined your inability to consider issues other than in terms of pure ideology. Obviously you’re not even aware of it. I’m sorry about that.

    yea, all that sensationalism and lying to support the insane cultists that believe that crap.. Oh wait, you meant they weren’t insane enough.

    Let me know when you want to get into it. Your position is both irrational and illogical. I’ve love to see you try and defend it beyond your shallow cliched talking points.

    Well, at least you finally do say something that makes sense, even if you do not grasp the fact the one that’s got the whole thing wrong is you.

    What did I get wrong?

    Weiners wife is close to Hillary, yet cannot imagine them, enlightened lefties tho they be, NOT having a girlie talk over this entire non-issue of their New Age mens doing they thang and still getting bidness done the proper (never “right”!) way.

    On Friday, brave daughter Cate Edwards trudged alongside her dad, John, as the former presidential candidate was indicted for allegedly misusing campaign money to keep his pregnant mistress hidden.

    Last month, Maria Shriver got a standing ovation when she appeared on stage for a taping of Oprah’s penultimate show just 24 hours after hubby Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger publicly acknowledged that he’d fathered a son with their former housekeeper.

    And then there’s Huma Abedin, Rep. Weiner’s exceptionally accomplished and elegant bride, whom those outside the Beltway are just learning about. Weiner and Abedin, a longtime senior aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, were married last July. Irony alert: Bill Clinton – no stranger to humiliating press conferences or extramarital trysts – officiated.

    The New York Post reports that Abedin made a brief appearance Friday – when Weiner was still adamantly denying that the bulging-briefs jpeg was not his, or at the very least couldn’t say with “certitude” that it was – at a State Department event: “Wearing a black pant suit and a prominent pearl necklace, Abedin never cracked a smile and kept her distance from the former first lady. She ducked out long before the event finished.”

    Perhaps it was just too unbearable to come face-to-face with another woman whose relationship had been oh-so-publicly shamed. Perhaps it was a mistake, since Clinton undoubtedly could have offered some sage counsel on how to rise above the smuttiness and stand by her man – if that’s indeed what Abedin intends to do.

    On Monday, there was a conspicuously empty spot beside Weiner when he teared up and fessed up and claimed the crotch shot – mercifully clad in gray undies – as his own. He’d accidentally tweeted it out then panicked; it had been intended for viewing only by a woman in Seattle with whom he’d developed an online relationship. But what of the handful of other steamy pics, most notably the denuded chest shot, snapped in front of what appears to be a credenza of framed family photos? It’s hard to tell, but the picture in the bottom left corner of the screen appears to be Weiner with his wife. Any good photographer knows that backgrounds matter.

    “I love my wife very much, and we have no intention of splitting up over this,” he told reporters. “We have been through a great deal together, and we will weather this. I love her very much, and she loves me.”

    Yet apparently Abedin doesn’t love him so much that she felt compelled to accompany him to his mortifying press conference. According to The Washington Post:

    The agonizing spectacle was once a given: The erring husband appeared before the media, supportive spouse at his side as cameras rolled and reporters shouted questions.In opting out, Abedin parted company with the Silda Spitzers (whose husband cavorted with prostitutes, then landed a CNN gig) and Dina McGreeveys (imagine flanking your husband while he announces he’s gay) of the world and cast her lot with the likes of fed-up spouses like Shriver and Elizabeth Edwards, who initially stood arm-in-arm with their philandering husbands, but later got good and mad.

    “Think Abedin will say anything about her husband’s news conference?” wonders the Post. “The notoriously private aide to Secretary of State Clinton never talked during the good times; highly unlikely we’ll hear anything from her now.”

    I’m starting to think jealous bitch Hillary set them up – to get back at Bill. Shes a closet diesel dyke, anyway. Proof of this abound across the Internets

    Bitch set them up.

    Oh, Jesus are you guys dense! Where did I say republicans don’t do bad things as well Kimpost? WTF? The entire argument here in this post is how when republicans do bad things they are made to resign and demonized, IMO rightfully so when what they do deserves that, while democrats that do far worse get cover from the media, refuse to go, and are likely to even be reelected because those that vote for them actually see this shit as badges of honor? You ever follow Marion Barry’s Washington DC career? What about Charley Rangel in NY? Ted Kennedy? John “Did I tell you I was in Vietnam” Kerry? Shit, it would be easier to name the democrats that don’t have a sordid history and engage in despicable behavior they wouldn’t condone from republicans nor the serfs.

    And speaking of Vitter are you talking about the non scandal that happened over 7 years ago, and which he had already confessed about? Because to me it wasn’t new or as big a deal as the media tried to make it out. In fact, contrast their reaction to the Vitter incident with this one about Weiner if you want some perspective.

    Seriously, I am getting bored with you guys now.

    I could compare Vitter to Spitzer before trying to judge who got it harder, but why bother, when I don’t really think that party affiliation is the main driver in these types of cases?

    No, my penis is not as blurry as that one. :p Wonder if we could conduct a poll? Who here has done what Weiner has done, and to what degree?

    1. Do you own explicit pictures of yourself with or without partners?
    2. Are those pictures stored on a computer, cell phone or something similar?
    3. Have you ever sent them to someone you know?
    4. Have you ever sent them to someone you don’t know?

    My answers:

    1. Yes. With and without partners.
    2. Yes. Laptop, stationary, cell.
    3. Yes. Through Email and MMS.
    4. No. Never came close. Not because I’m a prude (doh!), but because I’ve never been an Internet/community flirt.

    My point is that you found one guy, whom had already admitted to his indiscretions and said he had done wrong, 7 years ago of all things, to use the idiotic defense “republicans do it to”, when the list of democrats that have done far worse, but somehow avoided any consequences, is long and distinguished. Can you gimme another name? Something lets say more current as well?

    I could compare Vitter to Spitzer before trying to judge who got it harder,

    Sure you could. If you want to ignore the fact Vitter’s indiscretions happened long ago and he came clean about them, while Spitzer, like Weiner, got caught at it, and then tried to cover it up.

    but why bother, when I don’t really think that party affiliation is the main driver in these types of cases?

    Erm, is that what you think I was saying: that only one party has problem people? Because if that’s what you are arguing with me about, I would really love for you to point out where I made that argument. Let me repeat it again. I am arguing that there is a double standard, on purpose and for political reasons, that gets applied one way to one party’s members, and a completely different way, if at all, to that of the other party, and that we shouldn’t allow that. Scumbags are scumbags regardless of their party affiliations.

    Put your bias narrative to rest and relax already.

    Yeah demanding there not be a double standard is a show of bias. Methinks the problem is that you can not defend against my original argument that the bias exists, is kept in place by an unholy alliance of one party’s members and the media, and that it needs to be done away with, so you erected this straw man of an argument that I am making the ludicrous argument republicans never do bad things. If anyone is showing bias here I think you should look in the mirror to find them Kimpost.

    Rep. Anthony Weiner has said he has no plans to resign and that his wife wants him to stay in Congress, a Democratic source told CNN Thursday.

    Weiner made the remarks to a House Democratic colleague from New York on Wednesday afternoon, rejecting growing calls from fellow lawmakers — including key Democrats — for him to step down, said the source, who was familiar with the conversation.

    Weiner also cited polling data showing a majority of New York City voters want him to remain in office, the source said, describing Weiner as “dug in.

    The source spoke to CNN on the condition that the name of the Democratic New York lawmaker to whom Weiner spoke would not be made public, because it was a private conversation.

    On Thursday, Sen. Patrick Leahy became the most senior Democrat yet to join calls for Weiner, D-New York, to quit over his “sexting” scandal.

    Done. The noble massses have spoken, and they may ignore/change any laws broken anytime they want for their fav/idol, without trial, judge or jury, however they see fit. Internet polls should be the only lawmakers anyone should ever need

    Speaking of Weiner refusing to resign and so many democrats now pushing for it. Are we seeing an honest fear that this can backfire on them, or is this just them recognizing that as long as the serfs are focused on this they are safe from more revelations of how bad things are and how fast they are running the economy into the ground? The longer this drags out, and I am going to bet Weiner doesn’t resign no matter what, the longer the news doesn’t have to be about our abysmal economy, foreign policy, or inept leadership.
