Congressman Anthony Weiner Photo scandal – “I have made terrible mistakes”, “I twittered explicit photos”, “I will not resign”
Conservative website posts private pictures of Anthony Weiner
Conservative activist and author Andrew Breitbart on Monday posted two pictures of Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, which Breitbart alleges were emailed to a young woman he declined to identify.
A spokesman for Weiner did not immediately respond to a request to confirm that Weiner had, in fact, sent the photos. Breitbart has promised to post more photos of Weiner later Monday.
The first picture — posted on biggovernment.com and bigjournalism.com (two websites run by Breitbart) — shows Weiner holding up a piece of white paper with the word “me” and an arrow pointing to Weiner’s face. Breitbart alleges Weiner took the photo of himself to prove to a woman with whom he was corresponding that he was in fact, the Anthony Weiner who represents New York City in Congress.
Weinergate Bombshell: New Woman Comes Forward Claiming Cache of Intimate Photos and Online Communications with Beleaguered Congressman
A new woman has come forward with what she claims are photographs, chats, and emails with Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY). These appear to undermine severely Rep. Weiner’s explanations that he was the victim of a “prank” or a “hack.”
The detailed new information suggests that the Brooklyn- and Queens-based representative and the young woman in question were involved in an online, consensual relationship involving the mutual exchange of intimate photographs.
BigGovernment.com and BigJournalism.com were approached regarding this information more than a week prior to the separate, independent event of Friday, May 27, 2011, when a link to the now-infamous “gray underwear” photograph appeared publicly on Rep. Weiner’s Twitter feed.
We will be updating BigGovernment.com and BigJournalism.com throughout the day with photographs, timelines, and other clarifying details. However, we will not be releasing all of the material because some of it is of an extreme, graphic nature.
