Weiner Pulls Out (Update: How Did I Forget to Thank Lee?)

Filed under: General — Aaron Worthing @ 6:43 am



[Guest post by Aaron Worthing; if you have tips, please send them here.  Or by Twitter @AaronWorthing.]

Note: This post was retitled. Originally it was a round up on pre-resignation news, called “Weiner Links” and the news of Weiner’s resignation broke seconds after I posted it. That post will follow, under the fold, as is, but above the fold we will concentrate on the Weinerfreude.

Also updates will be constant, so keep scrolling down.

Update: Facepalm-facepalm-facepalm, how did I forget to thank Lee for covering this, especially over the memorial day weekend when all of you were out there grilling? The whole body of work was important, but he seems to have extra affection for this post.

Hey, let’s have a musical interlude:

Anyway, sorry for the omission, Lee. Can I plead a too-quickly-moving story and lack of caffeine?

Update: Literally just after I hit “post,” I saw this:

Representative Anthony D. Weiner has told friends that he plans to resign his seat after coming under growing pressure from his Democratic colleagues to leave the House in the wake of revelations of his lewd online exchanges with women, said a person told of Mr. Weiner’s plans.

Read the whole thing, but I am with Emily Miller on this: “I need a press conference of his smug face before I believe it.”

Update: I just got a Cnn breaking news email that confirms it. It’s worth noting that it was believed the final decision would be made when his wife came home, and she came home early from Africa yesterday.

Update: From the tweeter to the blog: Our long national Weiner joke appears to be over.

Update: More from the Times:

Mr. Weiner, a Democrat, came to the conclusion that he could no longer serve after having long discussions with his wife, Huma Abedin, when she returned home on Tuesday after traveling abroad with her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

And let’s give a shout out to everyone who made this possible. Andrew Breitbart, who forced him to admit it wasn’t a hack and of course Patrick who uncovered sufficient evidence to justify a police investigation into his interaction with a teenager. And even though we don’t know him, etc., I guess we have to thank Dan Wolfe, too. And how can I forget Mike, a.k.a. Goatsred? Update: Shouldn’t have forgotten Ace, either.

Update: Iowahawk tweets: Reports: Weiner to Quit #TypingThroughTheTears

Update: Maybee correctly reports that Gennette Cordova’s twitter has gone dark. Maybee alleges it was last night when this happened. If true, would that mean that Gennette knew it was coming? On the other hand, she said several times she planned to deep-six the twitter anyway. So who knows? And even that is not necessarily nefarious. He might have simply emailed her about his decision at his wife’s request so he doesn’t mess up her life any more, and she kept her mouth shut about him.

Weiner Links

There is no over-arching point to this post, just a tangentially linked set of Weiner stories I have seen over the week that I found interesting in one way or another but couldn’t find a chance to blog about them.

Let’s start with what I think is the most outrageous part of the story right now.  While Weiner is absent from Congress because he has a bad case of gotta-stick-it-in-everything, he is receiving paid leave.  That is right as he goes through this bull___ treatment program, we are going to pay him for the trouble.  The fact that this only could have happened with unanimous consent shows how unreal Congress is on the topic of spending.  Emily Miller, who you might remember taped Weiner being a crude idiot, has the details.

Of course I do think that Weiner is a screwed up person.  This is not an excuse, mind you, but it is a reason.  And I think Dennis Miller makes a good case for why he did it, here. And the solution isn’t therapy, but to say to him, “Grow up, you Weiner.”

And next we have Prudence Paine’s latest post.  You might remember she was the one who first saw that tweet by Ginger Lee indicating that she had received a direct message from him.  For purely informational purposes, this is what she looks like (Ginger Lee, not Prudence Paine):

Anyway, Prudence spends a whole post examining the psychology of Ethel (not her real name), the seventeen year old girl whose contact with Weiner is the subject of an investigation that apparently is still in progress.  And this is frankly where I have to respectfully disagree with Patrick on one subordinate point.  He has said argued different times that when it comes to our suspicions “it’s his state of mind that matters, not hers.”  But I have to disagree.  Evidence as to his state of mind tells us what his intent or expectations might have been when contacting this young woman, but evidence of her state of mind tells us how she was likely to react to him.  The two inevitably interact as they interact.  And the picture Prudence paints of Ethel’s crushes and heartbreaks, is disquieting in that regard.  I recommend reading the whole thing.

Of course returning to the subject of Ginger Lee, as you know she held a press conference today.  So here’s video from most of it:

And here she is calling for the Weiner to withdraw:And you can find additional coverage of this press conference here, and here.

And hey, while certainly  no one will accuse Ginger Lee of exploiting the situation, Gloria Allred made sure to mention that she was going back to work.  And what exact work was it?

That is via Prudence Paine with me editing out the name of the club (sorry, guys you will have to find out another way). It raises the question: can a Playboy spread with a “serious” story about her experiences, a la Jessica Hahn, be far away?

On the resignation watch, the latest news is that the Democratic caucus got very heated over Weiner yesterday and plan to meet again today. And while the White House tried to avoid saying anything about resignation at first, eventually Obama said that if he was in his shoes, he would resign.  Of course, I think honestly Obama actually probably has a solid enough marriage that he would never find himself in that position, but there you go.

And another fun thing about this scandal is the constant beclownment of his defenders.  For instance, here we have Lee Siegel arguing that since the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. cheated, we should tolerate it in a two-bit Congresman.  As one person quipped “Anthony Weiner should not be judged by the color of his foreskin, but by the content of his 140 characters.”

But for beclownment, it’s hard to beat this exchange between Howard Kurtz and Dana Milbank:

(Not that Kurtz has owned up his comment that the scandal looked like a hack, but oh well…) At the same time Chris Matthews takes a few swipes at Elliot Spitzer for covering the issue.

And I think Matthews is right.  I mean besides the creepy line, “I have been there”…

…there is this discussion of how he should have handled the scandal, when Spitzer says that his greatest sin from the perspective of the public was not being truthful at the moment of crisis.

No, Governor Whoremonger, I think his greatest sin was promising to be faithful to his wife…

…and then cheating within two months of the wedding.  It’s the way he has hurt the woman he should care for the most as well as their future children.  In my mind, lying is just the icing on the cake.

Meanwhile the New York Post imagines that the pics taken in the Congressional gym might be an ethics breach, writing:

They may not be the most revealing photos — but they could be the most damning.

Sex-crazed Rep. Anthony Weiner’s newest slew of beefcake shots, taken in the House gym and sent to at least one woman, give ethics investigators bombshell evidence of official misconduct, insiders told The Post.

“That’s what the House ethics committee will look at,” former House historian Ray Smock said about the 11 steamy self-portraits that made the rounds on the Web yesterday.

“Earlier, he said he was using his private cellphone camera. In this case, he may have been using his private camera, but he was doing it in a very, very public place — the House gym,” Smock said about the taxpayer-funded facility.

That means Weiner may be in violation of the House Code of Official Conduct’s so-called “golden rule,” requiring that members “behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House,” he said.

But to my eyes the rule is more of a generalized morality clause (which, um, doesn’t seem to be very rigorously applied), than a desire to make sure the building of the House is respected.  I have no doubt that the closer it gets to his official offices or the floor of the house itself, the more the anger will grow, particularly from his colleagues, but morally I am not sure what the difference is.  The issue is his compete lack of respect for his wedding vows, his dishonesty to us, the possibility that he lied even when pretending to come clean, and our concern about, well…  this:

Dang, that is a devastating screencap.

Oh, and as if all that wasn’t enough, apparently he is engaged in license plate fraud, too.  Yes, really.  Remember taxes and fees are for little people.

And apropos of nothing, there is a fascinating backgrounder on why twitter works the way it does, and how the way it worked helped snag him.  The title suggest that the moral failings were twitter’s fault, but in reality it’s much more about how the evidence was gathered.

    besides, don’t forget that she did call on him to resign.

    Another example of the contemptible, two-faced nature of liberals like Weiner.

    Meanwhile, the Democrat-dominated California legislature is ramping up tax increases that will include higher fees for vehicle registration and renewal. Or the type of fee that limousine liberals like Weiner wholeheartedly support in public while trying to avoid (perhaps even illegally) in the privacy of their homes.

    Reminiscent of another darling of the left, Franklin D Roosevelt, who chastised the wealthy for circumventing taxes, while then having the gall to tell the IRS that higher income taxes (which he himself had happily signed into law) didn’t apply to little ol’ him.

  25. Aaron, the dipthong *I* keep messing up with regard to this guy is in his name, Weiner. In German, that is pronounced VINE-er and means someone involved in winemaking.

    But the hot-dog sausages named for Vienna (“Wien”) are “wieners,” German pronunciation “VEEN-erz.”

    I’m not quibbling with Weiner’s family’s decision to go by “WEEN-er,” given that the only reasonable other option in the USA would sound like “whiner.”

  30. Jeffrey Toobin’s wondering what happened to his lighthearted story.

    MayBee (081489)

  31. In retrospect, I wonder with his little obsession, were any foreign governments able to get to him and blackmail him through this obsessive behavior? I read a book once about the Israeli Mossad, and HOW they do pretty much exactly this type of thing to ‘set new congressmen up’ they get them into a rather compromising situation sexually, with Weiner that would not have been too hard to do, and then they are blackmailed to vote/support what ever agenda the blackmailer demands… Many have been “bought” this way over the years according to the author a retired Mossad agent. I would think Communist china and Russia work in similar fashion. Maybe this is one reason WHY Sarah Palin is SO hated.. she would not be so easy to blackmail through a sexual exploitation or exploration … which ever method they use. The sexual bait being both heterosexual and homosexual according to the author.

    Reflecting back on Weiner, you have to wonder how safe was ANY information he may have been privy to when it comes to National security. … this being the most distressing element of this entire episode to me. I admit it has been fun making fun with the name Weiner and OH, so easy to make plays on words using his name and his activities, there really is a very very serious side to his whack-job..there I go still making puns…. Has he been blackmailed over this behavior?? He he shared national security information with spies?
    I know its easy to look at this lizzard faced tiny bodied goon and brush him off as a complete loser, but take a look at the length of time he as been in DC… and what he has been privy to and ask yourself, has he been blackmailed for his vote? did he share this information with any foreign government agents over all these years??
    THAT is the real story and what we really should be concerned with… IMHO

    Hargoosh (d0e9bc)

  32. you can’t have any better idea about what perverted sexual adventures Sarah Palin may be having than you had about Weiner’s adventures just a few weeks ago

    Mr. Feets – That’s kind of a subject completely unrelated to the travails of the plucky lying penis-tweeter and not something I think about at all. Do you thing about the strange sexual adventure of Sarah Palin much yourself a lot? Is that why you introduced the subject? If not, why?

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  37. Happy feet, AS a woman, I can tell you it would be MUCH more difficult to get most women into a ‘compromising sexual activity’ than a man. Especially the mother of 5 one of which is special needs, which translates to Needs more attention from a parent” Hormonally, a woman, mother and wife at 46 yrs is much much much less likely to be lead around by “hormones and ego” than pretty much any man… as after 5 kids, things change for women, in general. LOL I will let you use your imagination as to what that references to… Its a woman thang…LOL

    I don’t agree with that. I have enough female friends and acquaintances who are on the prowl but can hide it pretty well.

    I don’t know why we needed to bring up Palin just now, but I agree it is folly to think we know the private habits of public figures.

    I just thought that was kind of a non sequitur.

  45. There’s a TV ad right now for some new 4G smartphone. (Point of the ad is to show how lifelike its display screen is.) Scene is a nice restaurant. Guy puts smartphone on table, not realizing that his homescreen, a photo of a big tarantula, is shown. Woman sees “spider,” thinks it’s real and shrieks. 2d guy at table, with same misapprehension, repeatedly bashes the phone with his shoe.

    Happyfeet shows some of the odd obsessions towards Palin that Andrew Sullivan has. Not sure how much of that is due to, as is the case with Sullivan, HP apparently supporting the idea of same-sex marriage—he mentioned awhile back knowing guys who were considering that arrangement for themselves. If so, pro-family, conservative females in particular may be perceived as the arch enemy of such behavior and policies.

  54. You know, if you think about the stereotypical old creepy pervert, isn’t that basically what Weiner will look like in 15-20 years?

    Thing is, he doesn’t need his congressional power to continue being a predator, so his resignation doesn’t relieve the urgency behind law enforcement having a close look at his various online accounts. Particular what’s been deleted.

    If they don’t, given Weiner’s utter lack of self control and his potential for desperation and depression in the future, the risks are obvious.

    Dustin (c16eca)

  55. it’s not a competition Mr. Dustin

    Yeah, that’s true. But if you say one thing is cool, I want to note the other thing is cooler.

    And it is.

    But let me add, homosexuals being in commit ed exclusive relationships instead of having many partners is much better for them and us. Just as heterosexuals getting married (for real, not this insincere Weiner BS marriage, but totally and happily exclusive) is much better than many sexual partners.

    I think society tries very hard to explain how cool it is to not be exclusive. Like people are missing out on the cool life if they are really married. And that’s a load of crap for desperate followers, and extremely corrosive to society.

    Dustin (c16eca)

  56. “I guess blackmailable sexual adventures don’t necessarily have to be perverted but I figure it’s sort of an in-for-a-penny thing”

    Mr. Feets – I was at a large Pride celebration on Saturday. What I want to know is how the old dudes dressed as avatars, colored body suits, wings and tails, get it on. NTTAWWT.

    That’s true. Very true. Getting people to settle down and build a life is a good thing.

    This thread is totally derailing at this point, but if we had adultery criminalization combined with gay marriage, I think the world would be a better place.

    same-sex marriage is cool!

    Maybe there’s a bit of sarcasm implied in your comment, but sympathy towards male homosexuality/bisexuality does seem to push people towards the left. That’s why I generally don’t trust the overall judgment of people who instead of being honest about their “bleech” response to the idea of gay behavior, will turn to the idiocy of limousine liberalism. A condition in which people are two-faced and disingenuous about their own level of supposed tolerance or acceptance of what’s fashionable—eg, the various times you’ve used the word “gay” as a putdown to some idea or person.

    Mark (411533)

  64. 45. I just thought that was kind of a non sequitur

    Sure, because if there’s one thing you’ve proven you won’t tolerate, it’s non-sequiturs related to Sarah Palin.

  65. “are you sure those weren’t pinatas?”

    Mr. Feets – Yes. Their feets were on the ground. They were kind of swaying and dancing with their wings. Heads might have been in the clouds, though. I could not say for sure, but I think some of the people there might have been smoking a little weed. Shocking, but the less I know the better.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  66. That’s why I generally don’t trust the overall judgment of people who instead of being honest about their “bleech” response to the idea of gay behavior

    Sure, it’s totally gross. I don’t want to say so, because frankly it’s just impolite and not my place. People do things that gross us out, and that’s part of freedom.

    But even though I have that “Bleech” come over me under the more extreme cases (I don’t actually have any such reaction to the less flamboyant homosexuals I know personally) I can see that gay marriage is better than the Andrew Sullivan milky loads lifestyle (bleech x10000)

    Dustin (c16eca)

  67. “same-sex marriage is cool!”

    Mr. Feets – Some people think hemorrhoids are cool.

    tons of gay kids what bigoted politicians like Sarah Palin

    Hp, I happened to come across the following on the Internet. Not sure if I’ve ever posted it here before…

    Rupert Everett has revealed he had a six-year affair with the late Paula Yates.

    The “My Best Friend’s Wedding” actor – who is openly homosexual – has admitted to a string of affairs with famous women, including Susan Sarandon, in his new autobiography.

    “I am mystified by my heterosexual affairs, but then I am mystified by most of my relationships,” he said.

    Mark (411533)

  70. There was this particularly douchey guy I went to high school with who became gay in his junior year of high school and suddenly was friends with a lot of very attractive women. One of whom he’s been married to for at least seven years. And he’s wasn;t douchey anymore when I ran into him.

    In his case, I think he was just a little screwed up upstairs for a while, but it’s an amusing way to pick up women.

    Why single out Sarah Palin regarding SSM? Her position is no different than Oshortbus and Plugs. Can she get a break if she mouths some platitudes and claim that her position is “evolving”?

  72. Sarah Palin will never catch a break.

    Though if I outlive her, and she has some success in her political future, I guarantee lefties will fall over themselves explaining how Sarah Palin was a great patriot and leader compared to all the current stupid Republicans.

  73. Well, Mr. Feet has, um, issues when a certain Alaskan woman is involved. You would think he would just ignore her, but I think the poster above his bunkbed haunts him.

    Speaking of bigoted.

  74. “Well, Mr. Feet has, um, issues when a certain Alaskan woman is involved.”

    Simon – That is Mr. Feets’ personal competition.

  76. “plus lots of nuclear families have tons of gay kids what bigoted politicians like Sarah Palin want to banish to a life outside the realm of polite social institutions such as marriage”

    Simon – The above is just a red herring for Mr. Feets Palin hatred. How many Team R politicians are gay marriagings supporters? Never believe the explanations of Mr. Feets for his Palin hatred. It is not rational.

  77. I find it funny when he gets annoyed about being criticized about his PDS, and then says that I am obsessed.

    It’s funnier than cilantro, really.

  78. gay marriage is cool!

  79. I can’t help but wonder (a bit gleefully) how strong is the schadenfreude in Megyn Kelly’s household these days.
