That admission Gennette Cordova made this morning on my blog put another nail in the coffin of Tommy Christopher’s confident assertions about the Weiner scandal.
Did you catch that?
I’ll do the short version for those following the story closely, and then a longer version for those who are a little lost.
THE SHORT VERSION, FOR THE INITIATED: Marianela told Stack she had DMs from Weiner to Nikki, and DMs from Gennette talking about flirting with Weiner. Tommy Christopher assured us, in no uncertain terms, that Marianela was lying about this. This morning, Gennette authenticated the DMs where she was talking about flirting with Weiner. (She claims she really didn’t flirt with him, but was conducting surveillance on Nikki for Weiner.)
So Tommy told us Marianela was lying, and had nothing. Yet part of what she claimed to have, Gennette just told us exists.
The other half of what Marianela said she had was a set of DMs from Weiner to Nikki. And guess what? There’s another document dump coming tonight, and guess what’s in it?
Now for . . . the long version.
THE LONG VERSION, FOR THE UNINITIATED: I’m not going to rewrite the timeline, but I discussed a lot of it here. In a nutshell, Marianela Alicea (“Veronica”) had told Mike Stack (“goatsred”) that she had two things: 1) DMs from Weiner to Nikki; and 2) DMs from Gennette Cordova talking about how she flirted with Weiner. Here, from my June 5 post, are the messages Mike Stack told me he got from Marianela.
she also has some rep weiner DMs she is willing to share if you can guarantee she is anonymous
she just wants to know how it will be worded? who will be named as the source?
so andrew and dana will say they themselves are the source? keep [Betty] and my names totally out of it?
you can say we are high school girls because that’s necessary for the story
Other messages include:
the DMs with that girl gennette are between gennette and nikki with gennette telling her how she & weiner flirt
how they flirt on DM
then there are only 3 DMs from Weiner to nikki – they are pretty harmless actually. it is when she asked him to prom. that’s all she had
unfortunately she had already deleted the rest when he was accusing her and had [Ethel] harassing her
those were the worst of his tweets to nikki and [Ethel]s too
let me know when you are ready for the links – and download the pics instantly. Nikki will delete within 5 minutes of saying you’re ready
u have permission to say high school girls were talking to college girl about rep weiner i can tell you how it went down as long as no names
we have the links for you mike. we ask that only you see these links not dana or andrew. just download the pics and send to them,
Tommy assured us this was not true.
A high school friend of Betty’s, whom I will call Veronica (she’s a minor), was also contacted, via Twitter, by a member of the group, Mike Stack (@goatsred). For personal reasons I won’t go into, Veronica saw a means of getting attention, and agreed to follow @Goatsred so that they could speak privately. She told him that she and Betty had incriminating Direct Messages from Rep. Weiner, a claim she now admits was false, and which she made without Betty’s knowledge.
In fact, she was simultaneously telling Betty that @Goatsred had tried to induce her to lie about Rep. Wiener, and to enlist Betty in the plot. Veronica now admits this was also false. Yes, @goatsred did contact her, and she did feed him false information about Rep. Weiner, but this was not at his urging.
So understand: we have the following:
- Marianela (not Nikki) tells Stack she has Weiner/Nikki DMs and the Gennette DMs.
- Tommy writes a story that asserts that Marianela’s claim was false — meaning there are no Weiner/Nikki DMs and no Gennette DMs.
- Today, we learned that there were Gennette DMs. Gennette admitted it.
Is the other part of Marianela’s claim true? Are there Weiner/Nikki DMs?
Damn. That reminds me. I have a document dump to do, don’t I?
Coming right up.
