I Swear, I Didn’t Want to Post on Weinergate Again (Update: Weiner Gets Creepy with Emily Miller and Even More Video)
[Guest post by Aaron Worthing; if you have tips, please send them here. Or by Twitter @AaronWorthing.]
Update (III): Emily Miller, a Senior Editor at the Washington Times has been tweeting about her creepy encounter with the congressman. Read the tweets in this order: here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
And she says she has a tape…
Update: Courtesy of the Daily Caller, we get this frankly poor video. I will almost certainly replace it when we have good video.
Update (II): More video…
Update (IV): Even more video:
I don’t want this to be all Wiener-all-the-time. But seriously, how do you expect me to resist this?
ABC News’ Devin Dwyer reports: Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York says he “cannot say with certitude” that the photo of a man in gray boxer briefs that was posted to his Twitter account Friday night is not him.
That is right, the man can’t identify his own junk. Oy.
And that pretty much means he has taken pictures like this before, right? And that he owns underwear like that, right? Because if he didn’t take pics like that and didn’t own underwear like that, he could be certain it wasn’t him, right?
Well, either that or he is trying to set things up in case someone proves it was him…
Oh, and there is no pattern to who he follows on twitter:
During the interview today, Weiner pushed back against suggestions that a handful of young women he followed on Twitter indicated impropriety.
“The people I follow -– it’s fairly random,” he said. “The way I did it recently, I said to people, ‘If you’d like me to follow you, [tweet me] #WeinerYes.’ Sometimes people say, ‘Anthony follow me.’”
When contacted by The Daily Caller, Lee wouldn’t say what Weiner sent her in that private direct message, or DM in Twitter-speak. Lee also refused to answer whether she and Weiner have had other private communications and declined to say whether Weiner has sent her photos of any kind. Instead, she downplayed the #Weinergate scandal.
(emphasis added.) I can understand not wanting to reveal private communications just out of respect for privacy even if none of it was incriminating, but you would think that if he never sent her a lewd photo, she would say that, wouldn’t she?
“I haven’t met Rep Weiner. I follow him on twitter because I support him & what he stands for,” Lee said in an email to TheDC. “I have been hounded by his political opponents but that hasn’t changed my view of him and what he fights for.”
Lee also wouldn’t answer whether Weiner or any member of his staff had been in contact with her since the #Weinergate scandal began. Weiner’s spokesman, Dave Arnold, did not respond to TheDC’s requests for comment on Weiner’s past communications with Lee.
Left-leaning news site Talking Points Memo reported that Weiner was asked about Lee on Tuesday night after the House debt ceiling vote.
Get ready for a shocking response:
The New York Democrat deflected the question.
Okay, not so shocking.
