Weinergate? Please.

If you want to know why Breitbart and his cronies set their sights on Congressman Anthony Weiner, check out this excellent piece by Allan at Angry Black Lady Chronicles.

Seriously, click it.

If you need another reason to discredit the Congressman’s detractors (other than the victim’s statement saying she doesn’t believe for a minute Weiner sent her the photo, Weiner’s denials, the demonstrations of the ease of hacking Yfrog, the mismatch between “the photo” and other photos the Congressman has uploaded, the fact that the only person who saw the tweet was harassing both Weiner and Cordova, et cetera and so on.) this piece is the golden nail in the coffin.

    Breitbart is absolute scum and his pursuit of Weiner seems to have been borne out of vengeance. But his motivations wouldn’t matter if it turns out that Weiner did indeed send unsolicited pictures to other women and used his office resources to cover that up.

    What a pathetic creep, though. Gets a ‘like’ on his youtube video and instantly starts facebook stalking her. I wonder if he aggressively hits on servers at fastfood restaurants after they smile and tell him to have a nice day.

      I’m not sure if his motivations no longer matter. In bringing this up at exactly this moment, he did effectively redirect the public attention away from the Clarence Thomas issue. I heard today that Weiner’s admission came after Breitbart announced he had more explicit photos and threatened to publish them. Simply tweeting explicit photos to (presumably of-age, consenting) women ranks very low on the scale of Awful compared to Breitbart’s blackmail.

      Re: your second paragraph, to whom are you referring?

      • Stringer Bell says:

        Yes, it’s not as awful as Breitbart’s blackmail but why are we comparing this to Breitbart’s actions anyway? We’ve already established that Breitbart is a moral vacuum.

        My second paragraph refers to Weiner. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/rep-anthony-weiner-picture/story?id=13774605

        “Broussard’s first communication with Weiner came when she clicked that she “liked” a YouTube video of him, and also commented “Hottttt” on the link. Weiner “almost immediately” added her as a Facebook friend and the communication between them began.”

        I get your point, though, and I agree. It’s a private matter between him and his wife. I was just making a personal comment about him. It looks like he’s hasn’t gotten over his nerd phase in high school and still doesn’t know how to deal with attention from women.

        I like how the media is now so determined to find the truth when it couldn’t be bothered to ask one single question regarding Bush’s WMDs.

    I finally had a chance to read the article you linked to, and it was a very good piece. But the sad news is, Rep. Anthony Weiner, a smart, progressive Dem from New York, was thinking with the wrong head, just like so many other politicians. But, at least he wasn’t being hypocritical, like other politicians who decry homosexuality/family values/what-have-you, although, that’s not much of a defense!

    • Brittany-Ann says:

      Indeed. I heard last night. At first I was pissed, but thinking it over–on the scale of things, this ranks very low, assuming the women were of age and consenting, and no Congress resources were used. If it is otherwise, it will be wrong. As of now, this is Rep. Weiner’s private business, to be resolved between him and his wife.

      Breitbart, however, is still a scumbag.
