Rep. Anthony Weiner: ‘The Picture Was of Me and I Sent It’
To me this has always been a tempest in a tea pot because even though Weiner did send the pics, other than the impact to his marriage there’s nothing wrong or illegal with him having done so. So the smear campaign is still that - a campaign to undermine Weiner’s ability to work for his district through distraction. This attack just proves to me that they don’t really have anything they can go after Weiner on Politically.
Weiner should have just come clean to begin with, which is the only smart tack to take when dealing with professional dirty tricksters. So he was dumb to lie, - & probably only did so because he wanted to protect his marriage.
Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York said today he has engaged in “several inappropriate” electronic relationships with six women over three years, and that he publicly lied about a photo of himself sent over Twitter to a college student in Seattle over a week ago.
“I take full responsibility for my actions,” Weiner said. “The picture was of me, and I sent it.”
The announcement came as ABC News prepared to release an interview with Meagan Broussard, a 26-year-old single mother from Texas who provided dozens of photos, emails, Facebook messages and cell phone call logs that she says chronicle a sexually-charged electronic relationship with Weiner that rapidly-evolved for more than a month, starting on April 20, 2011.
