They said it was. And yet, a FoxNews.com story dated today says:
His decision to seek treatment followed his acknowledgement that he had exchanged online messages with a 17-year-old girl in Delaware, first revealed by FoxNews.com. Weiner and the girl’s family attorney said nothing improper had passed between the two of them. Police sources told FoxNews.com that computer forensics experts are reviewing the exchanges.
They “are reviewing the exchanges”?
How long does it take to review two innocent direct messages?
The girl’s mother, whose name is being withheld, told The Post Wednesday that Weiner sent nothing obscene — and sent only two brief messages to her daughter about seeing him during an April school trip to the Capitol.
I mean five.
Representative Anthony D. Weiner said on Friday that he exchanged at least five private messages on Twitter this spring with a 17-year-old Delaware girl who became an admirer of his after hearing him speak during a high school trip to Washington.
Let’s hope they spend more time reviewing the messages than they did figuring out the difference between five and two.
P.S. The fact that he exchanged online messages with a 17-year-old was not first revealed by Fox News. That’s just how they rewrite history. Like, did you know the line is “I came back strong. Large. In charge. Tights and cape shit”? The words “in charge” and “shit” have been written out of the history books, just like the identity of the blog that actually revealed all this.
So it is written. And so it must be.
Oh, hey. Just one more thing. How many women did Weiner admit to having exchanges with?
And how many have come forward? And admitted sexual exchanges?
