On Monday, Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner, in a by now all too familiar scene for modern day politicians, came clean on his “sexting” scandal by saying he had made “terrible mistakes” and had lied about it.
Little more than a week of parading around talk shows and radio programs declaring his innocence, claiming he was hacked, blaah, blaah, blaah, came crashing down on his head, as he admitted he had sent a lewd photo of himself to a young coed in Seattle.
According to the Associated Press (AP), he has admitted sending photos and that he had engaged in on-line chats – even intimate phone calls – with “at least” six women over the last three years. He said his behavior was “destructive,” especially since he continued the practice of communicating with women and sending them risky – even nude – photos, even after he was married.
Excuse me Congressman? How old are you? Are you still in high school? Were you pledging the Delta Tau Chi Fraternity House?
Weiner says he was taking full responsibility for his actions, and at least had enough manhood to announce “I have not been honest with myself, my family and supporters, and the media.”
Really? Ya think? Normally I only ask this question to Republicans, but in your case an exception will be made; Just how stupid do you think we are?
Weiner went on to say he had no intention of resigning his seat representing Brooklyn and Queens; and said he had notified Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, the Democratic House leader, Monday afternoon.
Yeah, OK, a full ten minutes before his press conference. Thanks for the lead time smuck.
Pelosi quickly called for a federal investigation to determine if Weiner had violated any House ethics rules or used national resources.
Good for you Congresswoman. Throw the book at him, and tell him to pack it in, and to go home.
Weiner has shown he is not worthy and incapable of performing the duties of his office. He’s sleazy; he’s too immature to be making big time decisions and most of all he’s a liar.
Congressman, we have serious problems in our country today, requiring serious people, and it’s time for you to go home. And take you camera with you.
