    Funny how whenever a story about some democratic “scandal” such as the pic that may or (more likely) MAY NOT be of Rep. Weiner (source = Breitbart, which makes it ridiculously suspect) gets into the news, it’s always about a particularly troublesome dem who is a real pain in the ass to the repugs. Never just a random dem who is just going about his day, as with the Repugs’ Chris Lee, for example, where the pic was absolutely and undeniably him.

    I find it almost laughable to suggest that someone like Representative Weiner, clearly one of the more Tech-Savvy members of congress, is going to send anything like that on his public twitter feed which has over 46,000 subscribers. It’s painfully clear that this is an attempt to smear and degrade the man who is one of the best, most vocal champions the Dems have, by one of the dirtiest mouth-pieces the repugs have.

    I’m a little disappointed to even read about it here, framed as something Wiener did, rather than as a blatant attempt by Breitbart to make him look bad, which is far more likely.

    If he was REALLY sexting some lady, 1) why do it on his twitter feed, and 2) why not go all-out, a la Bret Favre, and show the real deal? Oh yeah! That would make it much easier to disprove… Size, shape, cut or not, color of the pubes, etc. All anyone really has to go on with this pic is whether or not the congressman wears boxer-briefs…

    Thank you, Andy for contributing to this distraction for the Congressman. As if he doesn’t have enough to do for us. The repugs are never going to believe that it isn’t him, but framing your post in such a way as to question the Congressman’s integrity rather than the scurrilous nature of the source is really doing him and Dems a disservice.

    I know you’re trying to be cute, but if you really wanted to be truthful it’s Weiner’s (whiner’s) wiener like a German sausage. You were too cute for your own good.

  3. PLAINTOM says

    The source is Breitbart then it must be true, The pillar of journalistic integrity. Why don’t we just ask the RNC what tomorrows news headlines will be.

  4. Joe says

    I’m extremely disappointed in the fact that you, Andy, would frame the Weiner fraud the way you did. Even the ‘may have’ doesn’t excuse it. This item was debunked almost immediately and has been several times, and yet you put this item up without one bit of research on your own part. Disappointed.

  5. Robert says

    Weiner in German is prounounced “viner” whereas Wiener (which means a native of Vienna the capital of Austria is written as Wien in German) would be pronounced “veener” to a German speaker or weener if you’re American. I’m always amazed why the English language always imposes its pronunciation on non-English words.

  6. says

    I’m a little disappointed with the Rep Weiner story posted here when that was really disprove before this was posted on Towleroad.

    The fact that this is a fake is not up for debate, it is, the only thing left to answer now is whether Wiener’s account was hacked AND the picture was photoshopped to include Weiner’s twitter account name on it, or if someone just posted the photoshopped picture and merely a link with it to the Congressman’s yfrog (which anyone can do), then posted a RT as if the thing really happened.

    Andy, I think you owe it to your readers to post a correction on this story and ensure — in a more obvious and read article — that the photo was doctored and this was an example of fraud.

  7. groan says

    The only story concerning Wiener is the smear that Breitbart is doing. As others have pointed out, it was debunked almost immediately. Towleroad should update with the truth, and an apology for aiding the smear would be appropriate too.
