New York Rep. Anthony Weiner has retained an attorney to advise him “what civil or criminal actions should be taken” after a lewd picture was sent from his Twitter account. […] “There have never been any inappropriate exchanges between Anthony Weiner and myself, including the tweet/picture in question, which had apparently been deleted before it reached me,” she said in the statement. – Anthony Weiner hires attorney in Twitter incident

This is some story.

Some call it “Weinergate,” because “Twitterhoax” isn’t quite as catchy, but anything with Andrew Breitbart at point on breaking the story should make anyone skeptical.

A good place to start is here.

One really basic quesion no one has answered to my satisfaction is why Rep. Anthony Weiner, who is as cagey as they come, especially in using Twitter, is why he’d blast a “lewd” photo in the first place. This assumes the man is stupid.

I’m no Weinergate expert, but why isn’t this story gone by now?

It’s gone so far that the college student dragged into it has denied any association whatsoever.

At least in Nixon’s day ratf—ing had some subtleties.
