Fayt---He admits to lying about the Photos and he's not resigning. Oh and no snarky remarks.



[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmYT_hKOCT4[/media]





CNN----"U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner said Monday he has sent inappropriate photos to and had inappropriate communications with about six women over the past three years - some after he was married - and says he's "very sorry."



The photos include one - sent on his Twitter account more than a week ago - that he had previously claimed was a result of a hacker's prank, the New York Democrat told reporters Monday afternoon at a New York City hotel.



He said he's made "terrible mistakes and ... hurt the people that I care about the most," but he won't step down from Congress and has no plans to separate from his wife.



"I'm deeply regretting what Iíve done, and Iím not resigning," he said.



The women are "generally women that I met on Facebook," Weiner said. He said he never met the women in person, and has never had sex outside his marriage.



Of the photo that got the media's attention late last month - a picture of a man in underwear that was sent on Weiner's Twitter account - he said that he mistakenly tweeted it publicly. "I intended to send (the photo) as a direct message to a woman as part of a joke to a woman in Seattle," he said.



When reporters asked him about it at the time, he said that he was the victim of a hacker and a prank.



"Once I realized I had posted to Twitter, I panicked, I took it down and said that Iíd been hacked," Weiner said Monday. "I then continued with that story - to stick to that story - which was a hugely regrettable mistake. This woman was unwittingly dragged into this and bears no responsibility. I'm so sorry to have disrupted her life in this way."http://news.blogs.cn...this-afternoon/

If my last name were Weiner I'd be more careful with my sexting......"reply all" is the last button I'd push. If nothing else I'd start pronouncing my own name correctly: "Viner."



While I'd certainly reerect Weiner, I still hold him directly responsible for making Andrew Breitbart look good.....something no one else has ever accomplished.



Based on his performance in Congress the voters knew that Weiner had balls. Based on the photos they now know just how big the rest of his package is.

And making Breitbart look good is probably the real crime here. I don't care about this story, the only thing that pisses me off is that Weiner lied.

Pretty good odds that he won't be having sex within in his marriage for an indeterminate period of time, too.

I'll be watching right along side you skrekk, Jon said before that he would be terribly upset if the accusations were true.

Well, at least Weiner went all the way and confessed for the boner he pulled. Also he cleared up whether he was going to withdraw, or stay in there.

It's really not that big of an issue anyway, it's just a slow news week? Well there's lots of real important stuff to talk about but don't expect the NEWS to cover it.

Yep, Weiner's weiner ain't much, but there is a much bigger red, white, and blue weiner that everyone gets a drilling from:
