Well, my questions have been answered… Weiner got access to his “hacked” Twitter account back from the “hacker” so quickly because it simply wasn’t hacked… Weiner himself sent those pics, which also explains why he didn’t ask Twitter to shut down the account.
In addition, the congressman said that “over the past few years I have engaged in several inappropriate conversations conducted over Twitter, Facebook, email, and occasionally on the phone with women I have met online.”
Weiner said he “exchanged messages and photos of an explicit nature with about six women over the last three years.” He said “most” of the communications took place before his marriage, but admitted some took place afterward.
‘To be clear, I have never met any of these women or have had any physical relationships at any time,” Weiner said.
Weiner said that he may seek professional help, but stated “this is my own personal mistake. This is a deep weakness that I have demonstrated.”
Weiner also said he would not resign and that he did not believe that he did anything that broke the law. Weiner said it was a mistake but that he was trying to protect his wife.
With all due respect, Congressman Weiner (which after the display of the last week or so isn’t a whole heck of a lot), doing it SIX times isn’t a mistake, it’s a moral and ethical problem, and if you had a shred of honor you’d resign immediately.
The fact that you’re not resigning tells us almost as much about you as the pics do. And the fact that the Democrats aren’t–as of this writing–demanding that he resign says a lot about them, too.
