College Daybreak - Politician Anthony Weiner owns up to inappropriate pics

Posted by admin on Tuesday, June 7, 2011

Weiner, a Democratic congressman from New York, admitted that he sent a lewd photo of himself over Twitter.

The original photo, a "waist down picture of a man in his underpants" (as the Washington Post tactfully describes it) was sent to a women from Weiner's Twitter account. Weiner originally denied that he sent the photo and blamed it on hackers.

Yesterday he admitted in a tearful press conference that he had inappropriate virtual relationships with at least six women he's met through social media. Weiner, who is married, says he violated no rules and will not resign.

The Money quote: "If you're looking for any deep explanation, I don't have one."
