It was always just a matter of time before Breitbart got the goods. I don’t know how he did it – but he got one of the young women Anthony Weiner was trading emails with, to release the photos he had emailed her. Another pic, here.
The woman has indicated that Rep. Weiner allegedly sent the photograph after she asked him to confirm that he was taking photographs contemporaneously, in conjunction with their apparent online communications.
It’s over for Weiner. He has become a liability to the Democrat party. A party elder is going to have to take him aside, and tell him to do what’s best for the party. As for his marriage – well, I don’t even want to speculate, but I don’t know how it survives something like this – a married man trading pix in emails with young women. These latest pix of his are not terribly racy, but it’s clear to me that his motivation was to prompt these women to send him their racier photos.
Weiner is a grade A creepy narcissist, and a d-bag to boot to be trading pix with young girls on Twitter.
Weiner is washed up.
Which isn’t to say that the the Kos kiddies and CJ won’t continue to defend him. But by now, even his staunchest defenders in the MSM (who are not predisposed to believe anything from “smear merchant”, Breitbart) must be eating crow, even as they desperately try to steer the news to other things.
Ace: Oh Dear: US News Columnist Really, Really Thought Weiner Was Innocent And Thought The Whole Allegation Absurd
Update: Latest Weiner Pic Drops
Just a thought. Since you’re supposedly giving us a thoughtful take and you’re sort of paid to read stuff. Since you’re paid to read stuff, maybe skip Perez Hilton once in a while and read a conservative blog.
Ace: BREAKING: ANOTHER WOMAN COMES FORWARD WITH WEINER MATERIAL UPDATE: HELLO, IT’S ME(with flaming underwear)
The latest pic is a naked torso shot – (exactly the sort of pic that caused Republican Rep Chris Lee to resign in less than 24 hours earlier this year).
Yep, it’s time to resign:
By the way…this will (probably!) be my only Weinerpost of the day. So check back here for further developments.
Weiner Press Conference: For 4 PM.
Watch live, here.
Women coming out of the woodwork, now:
Powerline updates with this little nugget:
Star magazine has another woman–described as a Democratic campaign volunteer who is “middle-aged and from Nevada”–to whom Weiner allegedly sent 200 sexually explicit messages on Facebook. She also says that she never met Weiner, but “once had a 30 minute phone sex session with Weiner on his government provided telephone.” (Maybe he got the idea from Bill Clinton.) I don’t have the same confidence in Star’s editorial standards that I do in Breitbart, so take it for what it is worth. If you follow the link, the quoted messages do have a seeming ring of truth. One wonders, now that the floodgates have opened, whether other women will emerge.
