June 6, 2011

Anthony Weiner: "To be clear, the picture is of me and I sent it."

Transcribed from the live feed.

ADDED: He's deeply sorry. And he confesses that "over the past few years, I have engaged in several inappropriate conversations conducted over Twitter, Facebook, email, and occasionally, on the phone with women I had met on line. I have exchanged messages and photos of an explicit nature with about 6 women over the last 3 years. For the most part, these communications took place before my marriage, though some have sadly took (sic) place after. To be clear, I have never met any of these women or had physical relationships at any time. I haven't told the truth, and I have done things I deeply regret. I brought pain to the people I care about the most, and the people who believed in me. And for that, I'm deeply sorry."

On to questions from the press.

MORE: A reporter asks about an "X-rated photo" that Andrew Breitbart has implied that he has: "Can you say that is not true?" Weiner: "No, I cannot."

AND: Asked what his wife has known and when, he talks about her awareness of the things done before the marriage, then is pinned down into saying that he deceived her about the famous gray-underpants-tweet just as he deceived the rest of us.

ALSO: Describing his wife's reaction, he says she called him dumb.

AND: I think Weiner did a fine job of coming clean, taking responsibility, and apologizing. I had predicted that he would "announce he's entering treatment for sex addiction. Possibly with a grim/stoical Huma Abedin at his side." I'm glad he didn't do that. He didn't blame anybody else or any "outside force." He didn't use the nonapology "sorry if you were offended" form.

Now, it seemed pretty obvious that he would have continued deceiving us if he could have gotten away with it, but having made the decision to confess and apologize, he did that well. Of course, I'm assuming that there is nothing more to this story than what he spilled today.

He's not resigning, and he's not splitting up with his wife, he said. I don't know if he can control all that. If you were his wife, would you leave him? Realize that you don't know what their understandings are. She may very well accept this behavior. He doesn't physically contact the other women. He does things on line that sophisticated people might characterize as more like enjoying pornography than like having an in-person sexual affair.

NOTE: I'm not suggesting you're unsophisticated if you don't minimize this behavior and liken it to the use of pornography. I'm not even saying that you're unsophisticated if you expect husbands to refrain from using pornography... and from masturbating. But I do think that intelligent spouses draw their lines in different places.

"garage mahal said...


Breitbart is vile. His hatchet jobs on ACORN and Shirley Sherrod should discredit him in a rational world. But you know well we don't live in that world."

Name one provable lie Breitbart told about ACORN or Sherrod. Just one.

Then saw the same hatchet job used now, and proven now, with help from all over the MSM, especially MSNBC, with it's ridiculous Maddow 'May I ask if you want to answer a question, sir?' treatment of the lying Weiner.

Sherrod did say what Breitbart's video showed. Breitbart did not take that video farther than the evidence took it. Paranoid claims he edited it were debunked. Claims he deliberately clipped the context still go unproven (and unlikely).

ACORN did exactly as Breitbart has said. The full audio was available for ages, and it's always been clear to those who bothered to listen that ACORN was actually doing what they seemed to be.

And all along, the left just repeats their conclusion, over and over and over. Breitbart is "vile" everything he says is untrue. He should have no reputation.

Well, he was right, wasn't he? And you were wrong. Again. And he got his apology from Rep Weiner. Weiner is sorry to Breitbart that he employed a strategy of blaming the messenger, relying on dishonest people like Garage, who never pause after being proven wrong to stop lying for a second.

---

BTW, this is not Weiner taking responsibility. Being forced to say you're sorry is the opposite of taking responsibility.

But when you said you splashed something all over your screen ... you just meant water.

Right, champ?

PS Nellie Olsen?

William said...

Most flirtations don't end in sexual relationships, but all sexual relationships commence with a flirtation. Weiner leads a purpose driven life, and I don't think he sent those photos as a token of his platonic friendship. And that's a best case scenario. I would hate to think that there was no ulterior motive and his only purpose was the thrill of flashing random strangers.....Also, for a guy with a sedentary job, he looked way too buff. What with the flashing and the gymn work-outs, where did he find time to do the incredibly difficult and important work that this scandal prevents him from attending to. Such as: In the NY Post, there was an article that he sponsored a bill to relax visa requirements for models. No, really. That was his bill. (I think porn stars should be allowed a capital depreciation allowance on their bodies.) We need a man like Weiner to carry on this important legislative agenda.

Shouting Thomas said...

Let me see, what would be a rational world to our old friend, garbage?

Public sector employees pay off Democrats in return for kickbacks like high wages, gold plated benefits and early retirement.

This is rational.

So, I guess the rational solution for those of us stuck in the private sector would be to find some politicians to pay off so that they can kick back the goodies to us.

Or, would it be even more rational to just put everybody to work in the public sector?

caplight said...

Earlier I said: "The problem for Pelosi and the Dems is that a lot of people in Ohio care about things like honor, integrity and marital fidelity"

If Pelosi really throws him under the bus I'll always think it was because she read my comment. I am certain she follows Althouse.

Nah. It's more like 'let's do it ourselves before the Republicans do it.' Smart politics from Pelosi.

garage mahal said...

ACORN did exactly as Breitbart has said.

Breitbart would release the full ACORN tapes, unedited, which he refuses to do. Not to mention the findings of the states that investigated the tapes and found no wrongdoing. James O'Keefe is fucking felon, who until recently was ordered not leave New Jersey. This is type of person Breitbart employs. Actually, the right defends felons so why am I even bothering.

Anyone who has the slightest sympathy for Weiner needs to immediately view this video of him claiming he was a victim and lecturing the questiononer.

I'm sophisticated enough to expect that my husband would certainly look at porn and masterbate.

I'm not sophisticated enough to condone that he does it with OTHER women. Strangers on the internet and that by doing so he recklessly puts our entire lives and livelihood in danger.

I'm not sophisticated enough to allow him to make me and our marriage an object of derision and of humiliation.

And .....he knows it.

Chef Mojo said...

@Garage:

I do believe your recollections are muddled. Vitter is a Senator, not a Representative, and thus would not have been given an ovation by the House.

And Gerry Studds did recieve standing ovations from Democrats after he was censured by Congress, however.

nevadabob said...

"I'm not sophisticated enough to condone that he does it with OTHER women. Strangers on the internet and that by doing so he recklessly puts our entire lives and livelihood in danger."

This is how normal women think. Women who aren't corrupted by an entire life in the Democrat Party and living in a community of scumbag academics.

This is how American women think? The American women voters you will find all across the country on November the 2, 2012.

Eviscerating the Democrat Party.

I think the Democrats call this a "teachable moment" guys. Better listen up lest ye be Bobbit-ized.

I would only hope Althouse would come out so forcefully for the concept of a marriage (seeing as how she recently entered one).

Alas ...

garbage, in a rational world would stomas exist?

@chef
you of course are right, Vitter is a senator. Vitter however did receive a stand O at the SLRC last year. So I guess they were applauding diapers and dominatrices.

I was going to correct the record, and said fuck it, we're on a thread with Breitbart

James O'Keefe is fucking felon[...]

By 'Felon', I supposse you mean 'convicted of a felony', right Garage?

Oddly enough, I cannot find any news of James O'Keefe's felony conviction. Perhaps you have the link Garage? You don't want me thinking you are a fucking liar.

Chef Mojo said...

@Garage:

James O'Keefe is fucking felon

And you are a fucking liar, Garage. Show me the felony conviction, you fucking liar. C'mon, you cowardly fuck. I'll wait for this one. Please, show me the felony, you lying fuck!

avwh said...

It occurs to me that Weiner and Huma may have only had a marriage of convenience in the first place, if any of the Huma/Hillary rumors are accurate.

Which would make a tad more sense for Flashing Tony to keep right on going with his tweet-porn with teens even after his nuptials.

Looks like maybe Huma didn't do her due diligence before tying the knot with this scumbag politician.

So much for those "media-savvy" Dem spokesmen who never met a camera or microphone they didn't like.

You didn't even read my comment, or you would know the unedited audio was already out there. I listened to all of it. Did you?

James O'Keefe isn't a felon, idiot. He was charged with a crime he did not commit. He was guilty of a misdemeanor of daring to enter a Senator's office under false pretenses.

So, actually, Garage Mahal is the liar, and Breitbart is the one telling the truth. I asked you to name one provable lie Breitbart told, and you instead quoted the Media Matters 'maybe there's a lie on the hidden video!!!'

Pathetic.

Representative Weiner apologized to Andrew Breitbart, because Weiner isa douchebag and Breitbart proved it.

David said...

"intelligent spouses draw their lines in different places."

True.

But very few lines encompass acute public humiliation greatly exacerbated by stupidity and lying.

If Anthony were a mensch, this would be worth overlooking. But he's a putz.

Also his glittering road to success seems to have severe blockage. How much does that matter to her? It certainly mattered to her mentor Hillary.

Chef Mojo said...

@Garage:

You are such a predictable lefty. You just make it up as you go along. Everything Breitbart has exposed has been nothing but the truth. And that really stings your ass.

Shirley Sherrod was fired by who? Barack fuckin' Obama? The deuce, you say!

You're a fucking asshole, and a leftard joke.

Comrade X said...

a little friendly advice: delete.

O'Keefe and Breitbart aren't afraid to push back. Did you know Breitbart reads comments at Ace of Spades?

caplight said...

Freeman said, "I would rephrase this to read, 'But I do think that otherwise intelligent spouses draw their lines in different places.'"

Ouch.

In what world, sophisticated or otherwise, does a 34 year old wife of ten months think that it's OK if her husband flirts, texts, sexts, chats and phones other woman (including a porn actress) in an obviously suggestive manner?

Can somebody help me out here?

Sorry, Chef Mojo, but you'll get no apology from garage. He also, has no honor. No sense of shame.

The ACORN tapes were released in unedited form, with the exception of places where ACORN attempted to suppress the tapes using state law. No one cleared ACORN of "wrongdoing", only of crimes. And O'Keefe has not been convicted of any felonies.

In other words, another Mahal special, of 100% falsehoods.

What Garage seems to be upset about is that Breitbart forcibly upsets and destroys carefully constructed narratives. This is a crime, so to speak. And Breitbart should go to the Gulag or otherwise be silenced.

I do hope Breitbart isn't sending around cock pictures to coeds. Or giving advice on how to pimp out minors. That would be unwise.

After I don't know how many years of democrat rule, even when a "Republican" gets elected (Pataki, Guiliani) they aren't really Republicans, no, they are right-wing democrats in Republican clothing. (I left out NYC mommy Bloomberg)

Nothing in New York ever changes, maybe the faces but the democrat machine continues to grind the population into dust.

The only demographic that can stay here now is the rich and the two or three income so called middleclass families struggling to keep their nose above water and enduring 2 hour commutes or longer.

Middle class retirees must leave, it's as simple as that.

I kept reading the original post waiting for the writer, Althouse, to get to the issue of this man knowingly allowing his attack dog, dirty water carrying MSM friends attempt to "Alinsky" Andrew Breitbart. He let Breitbarts reputation and businesses be slimed while he waited to see if this sacrifice would be enough and he would be spared. What the hell is that? What the hell kind of behavior and character allows someone to do that? Brietbart had a fulcrum moment today and all things tipped in his behavior. His taking the podium pre Weiner was brilliant, and the way he connected all of the reporters attacks on him and his stories and ended by calling them out put their reputations, instead of his, on the line and name one lie Breitbart has told. The silence was deafening. How the hell was that moment left out of this account?

No they weren't. Any tapes released to the public by Breitbart were in edited form. Why would ACORN want to suppress the tapes? It would show the pure hackery of the ACORN "sting".

RuyDiaz said...

@7M

Karl Marx had an Arnold Schwarzenegger moment--did it with the maid. Ayn Rand's affair is funny, as she believed that the two-highest minds in the world had a right to be with each other. (Yep, it was his mind, not the fact the guy was young and attractive or anything.)

On the campaign trail, "You can count on me to make the hard decisions. Everything is well in hand."

With the press, "Hey putz, you sexted anymore tweenies lately" ... "I can't say with certitude."

I guess you schmucks in Brooklyn and Queens deserve your little perv.

The arrogance, the hubris, the unmitigated smug, pious pretentiousness of this piece of shit. He goes beyond sociopathy. He is in full delusion of grandeur. He believes he is simply above the law and that what he does is beyond and should be beyond scrutiny. How do you think he wooed his wife into dating and marrying him in the face of the trauma the woman his wife worked for underwent and observed? He didn't lie to her because he believed that he is these things. That's what makes him a danger to us all.

I'm starting to agree with those who think GarageBanal is really Meade just bumping up the page views.

It's just too perfect.

Methadras said...

I want to know who pushed the NY Douchebag (not you troop :D) to come clean? He would have denied any of these other pictures as a potentially ongoing prank/hoax/hack that he was unaware of. That's the kind of degenerate that he is. Was it Schumer? Was it Frank? Who?

Methadras said...

The NY douchebag (not you troop :D) still claims that his twinkie-dick pick was meant as a joke? Hey ma, look!!! ahahahaha!!! just kidding!!!

Really? He is still lying.

caplight said...

A Liberal will let the State control his food, his transportation, his income, his work environment, his children's eduction, his health care etc etc etc. But as long as he can have sex wherever he wants, whenever he wants, anyway he wants, with whomever he wants he thinks he is free.

Bunch of maroons.

nevadabob said...

"I want to know who pushed the NY Douchebag (not you troop :D) to come clean?"

What makes you think he's "come clean?"

Just because he told some reporters a story today?

He told them a story last week, too.

Was that one true?

Do you think this is over?

Some people never, never learn.

AA said: "I think Weiner did a fine job of coming clean, taking responsibility, and apologizing."

Taken out of the context of his lies, ass covering, condescending, false accusations, and general jackassery - yes, a fine job indeedy doody!

You really are easily persuaded by bullshit artists aren't you professor? Like Obama, Weiner will get favorable media treatment and like all democrats, he'll suffer no real consequences.

Good thing he didn't take his shirt off.

Carol_Herman said...

Oh, I dunno, Methadras.

As soon as weiner was asked by Wolf Blitzer if it was him. In the grey underpants. And, weiner said "not with certitude."

Right then and there you knew "certitude" didn't mean what you thought it meant.

Weiner's a guy of opposites, now.

And, Breitbart had more photos.

Next time? When democraps pose they'll have to turn around ... and show us their assholes.

Otherwise? The gray underpants photo has a shelf life in elections to come. Flacid ones. The dick picture can be used as "cover."

Kansas City said...

What we are forgetting is what a vile person Weiner was during interviews and in speeches before any of this became public. He used to make my hair crawl listening to his sanctimony and arrogance back then. We should be recycling those videos as well. I assume the democrats will push him out, because bottom line is that he is totally replaceable. They can find another bottom feeder to represent that Queens/Brooklyn district. But it will be interesting to watch.

CNN: Pelosi in affair with Weiner

CNN reported tonight that Anthony Pelosi and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were having a torrid love affair.

In a story detailing Democrat unhappiness over Weiner's on-line entanglements, CNN revealed the heretofore secret relationship between Pelosi and Weiner.

CNN: "Two Democratic sources said that Weiner, in a brief telephone conversation Monday with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, made it abundantly clear that he was not going to resign. At his press conference later that day, the New York Democrat said that Pelosi was "not happy" but "also told me that she loved me and wanted us to ... pull through this."

I told you people this wasn't over.

You didn't believe me.

garage mahal said...

What about that felony conviction for James O'Keefe? Keep on fuckin' that chicken, loser!

I didn't say he was a convicted felon. And it looks like Obama's Evil Racist DOJ dropped charges on this worthless little puke. That's a shame. It won't be long though before we hear about his next ill begotten caper. Can you say "PULITZER!!??"

If your taste in fine dining matches your taste in investigative reporting, my preference for dead rhino ass still stands.

CNN breaks news. Reports on Nanci Pelosi love affair with Anthony Weiner.

CNN: Democratic leaders took the initiative Monday to go after one of their own, U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, hours after he admitted to lying about posting an explicit photo on his Twitter account and carrying on inappropriate relationships with women he'd met online.

Two Democratic sources said that Weiner, in a brief telephone conversation Monday with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, made it abundantly clear that he was not going to resign. At his press conference later that day, the New York Democrat said that Pelosi was "not happy" but "also told me that she loved me and wanted us to ... pull through this."

Remember that, punk.

Here's the video where Chris Matthews tries to lay blame on Anthony Weiner's poor wife Huma Abedin for his adulterous internet liasons.

This Matthews guy is fucking sick to be trying to blame Huma Abedin for this shit.

And to think this guy fancied himself the modern day Tim Russert and thought he could host Meet The Press.

Sickening.

I have no idea. Sometimes fact is better than fiction. In this case, Bono is a fucking prophet. Fact is fiction and tv is reality. Monday bloody Monday.

I think he's gay. All of this a subterfuge to hide the fact. Including, from himself, perhaps. Thus, such a convenient fit with Huma.

Everyone, give Garage a break. He's had a bad week.

bagoh20 said...

Clearly we can't trust this guy. I want the answers straight from the wiener. He's got nothing to hide and no political ambition. He's the one really behind all this anyway. Who's gonna get the interview? Bring Oprah out of retirement if necessary.

traditionalguy said...

Will the real Anthony Weiner please stand up? Not likely to happen. His soul is trapped in a craving for impure personal relationships that apparently entertain him too much for him to want to be free. He ought to be quarantined.

JohnJ said...

Just saw Breibart on Hannity.

How is he not, if not exactly the hero, at least the undisputed star of this sordid affair? He was slandered and libeled by an unhinged left and barely blinked. Weiner still would be hunkered down with his clown team of political advisers if he didn't suspect that Breibart was holding some of his ammo in reserve.

Breibart is God! ...in the 60's sense that Clapton was God—a singular individual who dwarfs his old-media peers.

Yes, yes, I know that damning by faint praise, but really...

Fen said...

"I did have a relationship with Miss Lewinsky that was not appropriate... In fact, it was wrong. It constituted a critical lapse in judgment and a personal failure on my part for which I am solely and completely responsible.

I know that my public comments and my silence about this matter gave a false impression... I misled people, including even my wife. I deeply regret that.

I intend to reclaim my family life for my family... It's nobody's business but ours. Even presidents have private lives. It is time to stop the pursuit of personal destruction and the prying into private lives and get on with our national life."


And the Democrats will fall for this again.

Methadras said...

That's probably true. Often flirting is guised as joking so that you can laugh it off if the flirt is refused.

(Substitute "foreplay" for "flirting" and "flirt" in that statement, and it's probably equally true.)

garage mahal said...

A Darrell Issa aide, a porn site moderator, and Andrew Breitbart. How fucking appropriate.

JohnJ said...

“...and I don't think he sent those photos as a token of his platonic friendship.”

Neither do I.

He was trawling. One obvious mistake Weiner made in his presser was to provide a rough estimate of the number of women with whom he exchanged sexed-up tweets and so on—about six.

I'm guessing that's quite a bit off the mark.

Fen said...

Garage, you only look more desperate today.

If you have any credibility here left to salvage, I suggest you simply stay away from Weiner threads altogether.

@Garage:

You're a fucking liar.

You said O'Keefe was a "fucking felon."

A felon is one who has been convicted of a felony. You cannot be a felon otherwise.

Therefore you are a fucking liar, because O'Keefe was never convicted of a felony.

Take that investigative reporting and shove it up your lying ass.

Fen said...

I think [he] did a fine job of coming clean, taking responsibility, and apologizing.

"Senator Kennedy lied about the events of that fateful night nearly 40 years ago and he had to live with the associated guilt, inner turmoil, and public condemnation for the rest of his life.

In death, Senator Kennedy finally accomplished on this one issue what he refused to do since 1969: He stood up and told the truth. He should be commended for doing so. It would have been extremely easy to leave the truth of what happened at Chappaquiddick forever buried in a watery grave.

Instead, he did the right thing."


*vomit*

Luther said...

"Boy has the definition of "sophisticated" ever degenerated"

Not really. That's always been the ploy of those better than the masses. The mass of simpletons who haven't the nuance to appreciate the mores of the elites. Different rulebooks, you know.

Fen said...

"I told my wife that I had a liaison with another woman, and I asked for her forgiveness...

You cannot beat me up more than I have already beaten up myself... I have been stripped bare and will now work with everything I have to help my family and others who need my help

I also have not been engaged in any activity of any description that requested, agreed to or supported payments of any kind to the woman or to the apparent father of the baby"

Martin L. Shoemaker said...

Ya know, I do kinda see how Rep. Weiner could find all this a bit unfair...

"Well, yeah. I flirted. A lot. But it's not like I actually touched her, or, ya know, stuck a cigar inside her. It's not like I had her service me in my office...

"And sure, I lied about it. A lot. But I was smart enough never to lie under oath! It's not like I committed perjury when I lied. It's not like I tried to obstruct justice. It's not like I lost my law license...

"So really, what's the big deal?"

...Watch this video carefully. As all these fucking lies are coming out of Anthony Weiner's mouth ... not once ... not once does he blink.

The man is a sociopath.

He actually BELIEVES what he is saying."
---

Huh.

I went and watched the videos -- he manages to play it straight through "This was a twitter hoax," then blinks and looks away with, "a prank that was done," and then has to turn away, smile, bob his head and close his eyes as he tries to get through, "I am the victim of it, this poor girl is the victim of it..." and then he jumps back to his much stronger position: attacking the interviewer as though he's trying to slander the 45,000 people who "follow" Weiner on twitter.

His behavior is abominable, and the whole self-righteous, "How dare you insinuate nasty things about the 45k people who worship me -- do you even understand the cool technology with which they worship me?" spiel is an instant classic.

However, I really didn't see a straight-faced, no-blinking, no-tells, believes-his-own-lies sociopath in the part where he was actually lying, as opposed to when he was unfairly attacking the interviewer to deflect attention and eat up time.

His lying is pretty obvious -- three or four distinct tells when he tries to say that he was the victim of a hoax. (Looking away, smiling, and closing his eyes -- it's really longer than a blink.)

For anyone who wants to see what they think, the important bit starts around 2:45.

george said...

Althouse is being extremely naive if she thinks Weiner has come clean. IMO he lied at least twice in his press conference. Once in saying he sent the prick pic as a joke and another time in claiming he used no government resources in his activities. I bet there were more lies we just don't know of yet. It would be interesting to see what he would have said had Breitbart not been right there like the hand of an angry and righteous God.

I believe that Weiner is a pathological liar. He does it so aggressively and with such ease that it is hard to see how he could be anything else. He fits the pattern for northeastern pols like Schumer, Dodd, Frank, Rangel... ad infinitum. They all lie with nearly every breath.

And don't feel too sorry for Weiner's bride. These aren't normal people. They are partisans who marry for political advantage and influence rather than love. Anthony has always been a nasty piece of work and Huma has worked for fake people in fake marriages for quite a while so she knows the score.

She hitched herself to a man she knew to be of low character thinking he was a rising star who would some day have great power.

And power is the only thing this whole sordid affair was about.

"Anyways, the party you belong to *still* gave a standing ovation to a guy dressing up in diaper soliciting hookers. Your *peeps*. At least Dems like Weiner and Clinton didn't do any of the weird shit your side does."

Look, asshole, I've already told you this and you had no response. Yet you still pimp this lie.

Vitter admitted to using prostitutes through a DC madam, stood there WITH his wife and asked her and the public's forgiveness. That was 4 years or morte ago, and he is still married, and since then moved from the House to the Senate.

The accusations of dominatrix and diapers came from a Louisiana madam who jumped on the bandwagon. When questioned she could not substantiate her claims in any way. No records. No supporting voice except the prostitute who couldn't even describe Vitter.

there was no there to the diaper/dominatrix story except some Wonkette contrbuter's fantasy.

You liar.

the only senator seen in diapers that I know of is Al Franken. And he's a democrat,. dipshit.

B said...

"Whatever Cheffy. I'd rather eat the ass off a dead rhinoceros before I'd eat anything you made. "

I think you mean eating the ass off a dead donkey. Which likely describes Weiner's political career as this doesn't seem to be working out for him.

Then again, by all the evidence, eating democrat politician ass seems to be your forte.
