Weiner Gone Wild: Politician Admits To Indecent Pics
Let your freak flag fly, Rep. Anthony Weiner. It’s easier to do as a single man, of course (you’ve been married for less than a year to the beautiful Huma Abedin) but now you’ve finally admitted to being a fan of Twitter’s Direct Message function (you’re not alone; rappers are your BFFs here) you may be breathing a sigh of relief. That, or you’re coming to the shameful realization that now you’ll be known not only as a horndog, but a lying one at that.
According to New York Daily News:
Embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted Monday he sent dirty pictures of himself to Internet strangers and lied about it but he denied cheating on his wife—and said he wasn’t stepping down.
“I have terrible mistakes that have hurt the people I care about the most,” he said. “I regret not being honest about this. I was embarrassed. I was humiliated.”
Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, a longtime top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was not at his side.
They were married last year by former President Bill Clinton.
Weiner told the assembled media that he’s engaged in “several inappropriate” electronic relationships with six women over three years, and he publicly lied about a photo of himself sent over Twitter to a college student in Seattle over a week ago (pictured above). “I take full responsibility for my actions,” Weiner said. “The picture was of me, and I sent it.”
Politico reports that Weiner does not believe that he’s violated House rules or his oath of office and insists that he didn’t use any government resources to conduct the on-line relationships with various women. How his career aspirations fare (he was on course to one day run for Mayor of New York) remains to be seen.
