Rep. Anthony Weiner Selectively Edits Himself

Filed under: General — Stranahan @ 4:29 am

[Guest post by Lee Stranahan]

I’m one of those people who thinks sex scandals are funnier when they happen to Republicans. Sorry, I do. But this one is too funny. Anthony Weiner is a real favorite of a lot of Democrats because he’s not afraid to put it out there.

But as BigGovernment is reporting, maybe he put a little too much out there. Rep. Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account send out a photo of…ummm…underwear. To a woman who isn’t his wife. There’s no face, though. Just a bulge in some underwear.  That’s editing! Go to BigGovernment for details.

As I write this, the tweet is still up at TweetCongress.org. 

weiner

So, around the same time he was tweeting about hockey, he sends the underwear photos to that woman at @GennetteNicole. Don’t bother looking there, though. Rep. Weiner’s  photos are all erased. And Gennette seems to have deleted her entire Twitter account. And, it seems, her Facebook account.

Look what RepWeiner tweeted earlier in the evening. I don’t know what it means, but look..why is he talking about Seattle?

weswa

Well, Gennette seems to live in Seattle. Could be a weird coincidence. Or about 5 of them.

  1. Look, if an adult wants to send pictures of his junk to his lady friend over the Internet, it’s nobody’s business but his, hers, and their combined 45,000 Twitter followers.

  2. What the F%$k was this idiot thinking? Geezus = its bad to do crap but this is so Farve out

  3. Who knew this schmuck had a schmuck?

  4. And this schmuck is a married schmuck. Good thing he left his face off. Unless he is the only one to wear this particular brand of underwear.

  5. why is he talking about Seattle?

    Idiots, the entire day Weiner was tweeting about Clarence Thomas disclosing records as a “Friday Dump”. Huffpo even wrote an article about it. The time reference is Weiner’s continuing complaint about Thomas’ choice of timing as it gets later (Weiner is actually wrong about the timing).

  6. what’s wrong with these middle aged losers in NY he won’t have to resign like Mr. Lee though cause everyone already knew he was a whore when they voted for him

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  7. the work Clarence’s wife did what the NY dick-picture boy is upset about was done well before our cowardly America-hating president began to rape our health cares – bumble’s whole presidency was still just a glimmer in daddy Soros’s eye

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  8. Lee – I thought Prof. David Epstein pleading guilty to incest, while maybe not funny, was poetic justice.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  9. And — why was he talking about SEATTLE?

    Lee Stranahan (708cc3)

  10. this is why he was talking about Seattle cause of Seattle has a lot of personality

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  11. Yep. That’s what I think. But apparently it’s supposed to be obviously related to Clarence Thomas.

    Wait! Don’t tell me — THAT’S CLARENCE THOMAS!!!!

    Lee Stranahan (708cc3)

  12. Cap’n Ed seems to think that it’s really a lot possible someone could have really possibly hacked into dick-picture boy’s “FB or Twitter” account and really possibly spoofed sending the naughty naughty dick picture to Genette, who then deleted all her accounts, cause of that happens all the time

    It’s a dirty trick!

    Cap’n Ed thinks this is kinda likely cause dick-picture boy was “in the middle of a hockey game” …

    Cap’n Ed is sorta… not very in the zeitgeist what the rest of us are in or else he is unfamiliar with basic concepts. I think it’s a lot more likely that dick-picture boy had this picture on his phone for awhile and has sent it out to many ladies for to stoke their interest.

    He’s a congressman. American congressman are overly-entitled whores. It’s their nature. So the likely explanation is that dick-picture boy was getting sleazy sleazy with what he thought was a hot to trot twitterhoochie in Seattle.

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  13. Idiots. Clearly clarence uncle thomas hacked hies Twit account and spoofed those photos because of the jooooooooooos and the health cares.

    JD (85b089)

  14. It’s obvious that the taxpayers of NY won’t be subjected to another special election since Weiner is a D!

    AD-RtR/OS! (ac38e9)

  15. There is no there, there, because everybody already knows Anthony knows Anthony is a dick. He talks much bigger than the picture he sent, though. What a surprise.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  16. Ooops.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  17. the picture was meant to be enticing I think as in like hey baby get a load of this

    and she was like omg I’m deleting all my accounts

    and he was like omg I been hacked

    so… Fail.

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  18. As a constiuent of this over-entitled douchebag, can assure you his seat is secure, as long as they don’t catch him in bed with a dead woman or a live boy. And I’m not so sure about the live boy part. Further despite Obama’s umnpopularity due to his Israel problem in big chunks of his district Weiner seems secure. Bob Turner with no help from the GOP establishment got more votes percetange wise than Barney Frank’s opponent. Might be a district that could be a pickup, though redistricting could put Weiner head to head against R Michael Grimm. There are simply too many people here who reflexively vote D.

    Wiener for a while worked out in the same gym, say early 1990s. Picture a scrawny loudmouth in zumbapants and a bandana who would grunt like he was pulling the Queen Mary every time he curled 40 pounds. Every time.

    Big rumor about Weiner is that he and his former roommate, Jon Stewart (Leibowitz) were very, very, very close friends.Both got married quite suddenly in their 40s after extended adolesence.And that his marriage to Hillary Clinton’s Arab chief-of-staff was very convenient. Though in fairness I recall seeing Weiner with ladies in clubs and bars in anround Brooklyn at roughly same tim period.

    may be having fantasies
    of “Seattle Slew”?

    ColonelHaiku (19a039)

  21. Lee,this guy is my Rep honestly why we let a guy with the last name weiner into office is beyond me.

    DohBiden (15aa57)

  22. Bugg – Obama is doing damage control in Poland today, honoring Polish Jews.

    Lech Walesa did the right thing and turned down a group invitation to meet with him. Too busy.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  23. do we call the photos “Weiner shots.” just askin’…

    Aaron Worthing (73a7ea)

  24. I live in his district. Don’t blame me, I voted for Bob Turner.

    Any ideas on how I can make his life miserable over this?

    East Coast Chris (c31a9b)

  25. I don’t know if he’s cheatin’ or just sending silly photos. It would be really bizarre if he decided to cheat via twitter crotch photography. Seems like the highest risk for lowest payoff imaginable.

    Twitter?

    Bill Clinton needs to give this bozo some pointers.

    But perhaps that’s an indication this isn’t quite what it appears to me. It could be a screwed up attempt to send a photo, a hacked account, or just something meant to be humorous rather than some actual cheating.

    I know Weiner is a loudmouth liberal, but I had an interaction with him that showed him to be a pretty decent man, or at the very least, not full of himself. Really, I think he’s one of those liberals who is sincerely trying to help, albeit in a misguided manner. But power corrupts, and I haven’t seen the guy in several years.

    Big rumor about Weiner is that he and his former roommate, Jon Stewart (Leibowitz) were very, very, very close friends….Though in fairness I recall seeing Weiner with ladies in clubs and bars in anround Brooklyn at roughly same tim period.

    I was talking with someone a few weeks ago about sex and politics, and the conversation got around to a person in our workplace who’s involved in same-sex relationships. I mentioned that, based on the background of many non-purely-straight people, it’s technically more correct to describe most gays as bisexual—eg, the person we were discussing was previously married and had kids.

    I also said that if a person is of the left, he or she probably is even likelier to be involved in non-conforming, flaky behavior. Because that notion is upended when a Republican/rightist is the guilty party, that’s probably a major reason Lee said sex scandals involving such a person are funnier.

    I figure that if someone like the Republican (although was he a squish?) from that district in western New York thinks with his crotch, and Newt Gingrich is pretty much similar — and there’s the type along the lines of Schwarzenegger — then it’s a given that no-shame, do-your-own-thang Democrats/liberals will be super prone to activity where STDs are all over the place. And that’s 10 times truer — for EVERYONE — in this age of post-Bill-Clinton.

    Heh! I’ll bet he has vanity plates and calls his car the Weinermobile.

  32. Compare and contrast Rep Lee and Rep Weinerhole’s reaction, MFM coverage, and response.

    JD (318f81)

  33. Not full of himself?! Are you kidding me?

    Comment by JD

    Yeah, I know. I’m just relating my personal experience with the guy, who is actually not a douchebag, in my opinion. Or at least wasn’t a few years ago. I think there’s a possibility he’s changed after years of being fawned over, or perhaps I’m just naive.

    Compare and contrast Rep Lee and Rep Weinerhole’s reaction, MFM coverage, and response.

    Yeah, goes without saying. If you’re a democrat, you escape scrutiny until the media is forced to cover something. It’s an endless list. Barney Frank, Robert Byrd, etc. They can have whorehouses and use the N word if they are on Team D. A republican can’t even breath funny before they start freaking out.

    Dustin (c16eca)

  34. Is he really ,Dustin, by trying to put
    Goldline out of business, by putting pressure on Clarence Thomas,

    Comment by ian cormac

    I realize there is plenty of evidence that he is a relentless and unfair partisan.

    Dustin (c16eca)

  35. Dustin – You were allowed to oppose the same tired old liberal policies under Bent Dick Bill Clinton you do today, but according to Rep. James Clyburn, the only reason you oppose them today is because of Barack Obama’s skin color. I did not know that was the reason I opposed to Obama’s policies. I thought I was being consistent in my principles. You can learn something from these hypocritical fearmongering racebaiting douchebags every day, I guess.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  36. Maybe that’s what that silly Gallup poll is going on about.

    so… Fail.

    Very fail. Why does Ed think watching a hockey game on TV makes hacking more likely?

    MayBee (081489)

  39. My guess is marrying Hillary’s beard has not been especially fulfilling for him.

    MayBee (081489)

  40. And people…..mind your avatars!
    Be careful not to have it appear as though your mom is posting a picture of your dick.

    MayBee (081489)

  41. I heart MayBee.

    JD (d48c3b)

  42. MayBee I’m curious why Anthony thinks it’s ok for to release pictures of l’il Anthony but under no circumstances are the American people to be allowed to see bin laden’s dead corpse

    I think he has it almost exactly backwards

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  43. I thought that the picture was just an eponymous play on his name. Sort of like a trademark. Except he must have rented the weiner or used a banana.

    Mike K (8f3f19)

  44. How could one tell if it was a picture of Weiner’s dick or his nose?

    Abe Froman (5c912f)

  45. When Obama turned his back on Israel, Weiner’s world collapsed, he was date-raped. Turns out he had his account in the wrong bank all along.

    Now, the once too proud boy from NY city is drinkin’ heavy, askin’ himself questions he’s afraid to answer, and he’s reaching out to old girlfriends to find his way back to where he once belonged.

    Weiner’s daemons are many, his conceits are more, and his disillusionment and self-doubt dominant the long unsatisfying and restless nights.

    Weiner’s chickens have come home to roost, he talked the talk, and he played the game fast and loose. But, as he’s now in the painful process of learning the hard way, the garden path leads only to remorse.

    ropelight (ea6721)

  46. think of it a Weiner’s trademark … a small thing that stands for the whole.

    so to speak

    Quasimodo (e696dd)

  47. I created a hilarious photoshop some months back in anticipation of just such a story arising. You can see it here:

    No Sheeples Here (edcc7c)

  48. I don’t think Weiner is disillusioned by bumble Mr. ropelight he’s always been a Hillary boy he endorsed her and campaigned for her and married her hoochie and he’s often critical that bumble isn’t raping our little country hard enough with the socialism

    “Yeah, I know. I’m just relating my personal experience with the guy, who is actually not a douchebag, in my opinion. Or at least wasn’t a few years ago. I think there’s a possibility he’s changed after years of being fawned over, or perhaps I’m just naive.”

    Our rep Bruce Braley wasn’t a douchebag when he got elected either, but he “went Washington” faster than a speeding bullet once in office. For the first two yeas he sent out full-color, four-page, heavy stock, “Look how great I am!” mailings every month…all on the taxpayers’ dime. Evidently I wasn’t the only one who protested because that practice has stopped. He’s still a douche, though.

    creeper (f1f686)

  50. Some men are just utterly clueless: I have yet to meet any woman who sees a photo like Mr. Weiner’s (or Brett Favres, or Rep. Lee’s, etc), and thinks to themselves,

    “Why there’s that smart,witty, erudite, kind-hearted man I’ve been saving myself for all these years.”

    Men – Get a Clue. We are laughing at you. And we are embarrassed at your delusions of grandeur. We outgrew 12-year old boys when we were in the 5th grade. Stop being such goobers.

  65. I think there is a possibility that he sent the young woman a longer direct (private) message with the yfrog picture at the end. His cell carrier split the direct message in to two, and as twitter warns is likely, the first part went private, but the seocnd part, with the image, was posted to all his followers. mystery solved?

    Meremortal (7c4ebd)

  69. So Lee, now that its pretty clear who actually forged this image and hacked into the account, and now that Ms Cordova has made a public statement, how do you feel about being a part of all this?

    Did you think about it in Church at all… you know, all that stuff about bearing false testimony (let alone creating it?)

    You and this gang of depraved zombies are celebrating not just outright fraud (already proven as such… or havent you heard?) but also the most invasive forms of dishonest smearing and political hacking.

    You Lee, Mr. I-am-just-a-Liberal-who-actually-UNDERSTANDS-Breitbart (forget about what he pays you), are part of a community that is harrassing young college girls who happen to be left leaning. Your people are circulating their private info, and actively harrassing them… or did you not read Ms Cordobas statement?

    Obviously it doesnt matter to you, since you arent interested in truth. You are interested in making your boss happy. But how many more court cases do you folks really want to loose?

    Anyhow, all this is going to make the Sherrod case a helluva lot more interesting, seeing that your boss (and you) dont seem to actually verify the damaging and libelous materials you circulate with such elan.

    Even if you dont believe in karma Lee, you should believe in morals… its sad that you and your buddies lack a very basic and esential humanity.

    Shame on you.

    LuvyBuns (7fe704)

  70. “So Lee, now that its pretty clear who actually forged this image and hacked into the account”

    LuvyBuns – Weiner fessed up?

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  71. So everyone is in plausible deniability mode now.

    The wagons are circuled. Nothing will come of this except of course cold dinners at the Weiner household.

    So it goes. And, yes, I am ripping off Vonnegut.

    Ag80 (1bc637)

  72. So Lee, now that its pretty clear who actually forged this image and hacked into the account, and now that Ms Cordova has made a public statement, how do you feel about being a part of all this?

    What?

    Who do you think clearly ‘forged’ this image?

    The only good theory I’ve heard so far is that it was Weiner.

    Cordova’s statement is worthless. She’s a shill for Weiner, worshiping him to the point of calling him her boyfriend and her friends mocking her affection for him. And her statement was clearly professionally drafted… I guess by Weiner’s staff.

    And she says she is familiar with the ‘hacker’ but no one is giving us any details.

    You speak about morals, but you lied when you said it was clear who ‘forged’ this, didn’t you? Why? Because you’re a democrat and Weiner is too? That’s your idea of morality?

    Dustin (c16eca)

  73. Anyhow, all this is going to make the Sherrod case a helluva lot more interesting, seeing that your boss (and you) dont seem to actually verify the damaging and libelous materials you circulate with such elan.

    Sherrod was racist in how she used tax payer dollars (via grants) in doling out aid to farmers at risk of losing their livelihood.

    Nothing Breitbart did was libelous. It is disgusting that you would suggest otherwise. Sure, it was damaging. The NAACP shouldn’t promote so much racism if it’s going to also condemn the Tea Party as racist. Breitbart proved just how dishonest they were being, unable to face racism in their face while pretending they had proven some no one had seen on crass partisan grounds.

    Verify what, exactly? Lee is presenting Weiner’s side of the story. It’s just that it’s hard to understand why Twitter didn’t take down the verified account if it was really hacked. It’s suspicious that a man looking like Weiner sent a creepo picture to one of Weiner’s groupies with Weiner’s twitter account.

    What is there to verify? All the evidence was deleted by Weiner and Cordova because they wanted to hide it all. They claim they just wanted to stop the ‘harassment’, but if they are telling the truth they are silly people.

    You should recalibrate your ‘liar liar’ meter.

    Dustin (c16eca)

  74. C’mon, Dustin. You aren’t taking the offended tone seriously…by a person who calls herself or himself “loveybuns”?

    The person is clearly a partisan shill. Notice how the accusations of partisanship fly…clearly projection. I mean, I would feel differently if characters like this cared when person details about right-leaning people are revealed. But strangely, they are silent about that.

    We shall see about the Weiner. But if he actually sent messages like this around, why, he should leave office immediately. Right?

    So he should be having the “hackers” investigated by the Feds. Bet you money he won’t…and we all know why.

    Simon Jester (e39691)

  75. LuvyBuns is just a racebaiting moonbat moron who shows up here occasionally. Nothing she says should be taken seriously.

  77. Does anyone have any idea what this “LuvyBuns” character is talking about? It seems bizarre, like a posting that slipped out of an alternative universe.

    . But if he actually sent messages like this around, why, he should leave office immediately. Right?

    I don’t see why. It’s not illegal, it’s only barely immoral, and it’s not fattening. All it is, is slightly demeaning. I doubt his wife minds; so why should his constituents?

    Milhouse (ea66e3)

  78. “like a posting that slipped out of an alternative universe.”

    Milhouse – It did, that’s where LuvyBuns lives.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  79. I agree the ‘scandal’ is barely anything. A chuckle. The only reason we’re talking about it is because there’s nothing else going on.

    Though the lying about hackers seems a lot worse to me.

    Dustin (c16eca)

  80. Well there’s this, Dustin, but it feels just like Groundhog Day. all over again:

    ian cormac (72470d)

  81. If Weiner’s constituents hear about the incident at all, they’ll smile and nod knowingly before they dismiss it as a mildly embarrassing peccadillo.

    But, if one of the scolds at the NY Times makes a big deal out of it, Weiner might actually have to put on his best hang dog look and make the rounds offering apologies to Manhattan’s influential and overweight society matrons.

    Oh, the horror of it all.

    ropelight (fc3c30)

  82. Well, since you have all decided what the lie of the week should be, I guess that means that the ever dishonest Lee Stranahan can go back to his paid service helping (habitual liar) Andrew Breitbart, and (lifelong bigot) Steve KKKing do the Klans dirty work for them.

    Well done kids…, Speak Truth to power.

    LuvyBuns (7fe704)

  83. LuvyBuns – Honey, I love it when you stop by to play the race card. It’s all you’ve got.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  84. Luvybuns is projecting.
