Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY 9″) finds himself in a late night online pickle.
This evening a photo surfaced on Congressman Weiner’s yfrog account and in his verified Twitter timeline of a man in his underwear with an erection. The photo was reportedly sent to a woman on Twitter. We’ve protected her name and her account, which was at one time verified to be active but has since been deleted after the photo in question was deleted...
...Coincidentally, the rest of the photos in the congressman’s alleged yfrog account were also deleted around 11 p.m. eastern...
...Weiner, who married Hillary Clinton’s longtime assistant, Huma Abedin, last year, has been Tweeting about hockey this evening. Confusion reigns online as puzzled Weiner followers wonder what occurred to Weiner’s timeline.
The photo, stored at Weiner’s alleged yfrog account, is connected to his verified Twitter account. Were his yfrog and Twitter accounts hacked as well?
I'm guessing that's the weiner story Weiner is sticking with.
Remember that a Republican -- Rep. Christopher Lee (NY-26) -- resigned after a similar, less lewd, photo was published on an Internet dating site.
But Democrats operate under a different set of rules than the rest of us.
• Rep. Gerry Studds continued serving in Congress even after being censured for having sex with a 17-year old Congressional page.
• Rep. Barney Frank continues to serve in Congress even after a series of sex-related scandals including the discovery that a gay prostitution ring was operating out of his home.
• And so on, ad infinitum.
Anthony's Weiner needs to resign from Congress immediately. It's the ethical thing to do. He won't, of course, because he's a shameless, power-hungry, Marxist hack like his mentor Chuck Schumer. He won't resign because it would be the ethical thing to do.
