"I just want this to be over," says Weiner-pic recipient, posing, yesterday, for a picture in the NY Post.

Is anyone interested in this person? The focus is on Weiner, a politician of some significance. I can see why Gennette Cordova has stepped forward to make a statement and why she might want to pose for a more dignified photograph than the one that had been making the rounds, but I am not hearing anyone saying anything negative about her. Melt back into private life. Close the door.

I'd hit it. Is she still accepting pictures of cocks twice her age?

DADvocate said...

No.

James Arness has died. Gunsmoke will live forever, I hope. It embodied the American spirit that liberals have been trying to stomp out.

People who "just want this to be over" generally don't follow suit by posing for pictures in the NY Post.

I'd have held out for a six-page spread in Vanity Fair, posing in a convertible with sunglasses on. Then I'd file a flurry of lawsuits because I was wrongly outed of my CIA desk job by a Republican cabal.

Headline from the NY Post at the linked site,

"FELLOW DEMS KEEPING HANDS OFF WEINER'S EXPANDING SCANDAL"

Beating Drudge at his own game. By beating I mean coming in first.

In the headline contest!

Coketown said...

I see, Ms. Cordova. Following the Sarah Palin route, eh? "I don't want media attention. I'm just doing my thing. Now hold on while I pose with my voluptuous, pendulous breasts. Do the dark skies and white stucco accentuate my many curves?"

Coming up: "Ms. Cordova's Leave Me Alone Northwest Bus Tour."

mccullough said...

Maybe she can get a few credit hours toward her journalism degree from this experience. I wonder if she's ready to switch her major. If she were smart, she'd have traded her story for a paid internship at one of these rags.

Marshal said...

The general public isn't interested. But I bet the students and teachers at her school are making a big deal of it. Collge student & dick pic: who could predict unreasonable mania?

Just because her new level of public interaction doesn't measure up to yours or Weiner's doesn't mean it isn't an unwelcome increase to her. Especially given how embarassed she must be when around the more mature people in her life, like the grandparents she mentions.

RuyDiaz said...

Aha, I see her angle.

She doesn't want people to think The Weiner sent the picture to her, but to Ginger Lee. Doesn't want the tea-making boyfriend to get the wrong idea.

Scott M said...

"Her name is Ginger -- it makes sense he might have mixed us up," Cordova said, noting that two of the first three letters of their names are the same

Does Twitter auto-populate addresses like Outlook does? If so, I can buy this 100% as there have been many times one finger slip has sent an email intended for a co-worker to a buddy from college. He, to his credit, always answers as serious/bullshit as he can, letting the response dwindle into unintelligible jargon by the end of the paragraph.

So, it could very well be that he meant to send it to the porn stripper. But that doesn't change things one bit. In fact, as far as his wife is concerned, I'd say it makes things a mite worse.

Wally Kalbacken said...

Wouldn't hit it.

R.I.P. James Arness. You had to like the way he refused to participate in the typical Hollywood image-building/PR/bullshit.

The Weiner thing will not go away - until the weiner owner does.

murgatroyd666 said...

... but I am not hearing anyone saying anything negative about her.

That's because Congressman Weiner hasn't admitted to anything yet.

When he does acknowledge that he did it, JournoList2 will disseminate the Party Line that she's a skank who enticed him into it.

Geoff Matthews said...

EVERYBODY LISTEN!
DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!!

MadisonMan said...

Please, as I come out the door willingly for the photo-op I've arranged, stop taking pictures of me!

Lincolntf said...

I've exchanged a few Tweets with GennetteC. She strikes me as an upstanding (though hopelessly indoctrinated) young lady. As for the one pic she assented to, that was out of literally 100's of requests. Hard to call that attention-whoring, unless you need her to fit into that role so the scandal fits into the familiar pattern.

Patrick said...

It's quite possible that she is hounded by the media for interviews, and we don't see all of that. Thus, it's quite possible that she has some hope of "melting back into private life" after this interview. Haven't really seen anything indicating she is an attention whore.

kent said...

Been there, done that: Markos Moulitsas Refuses To Protect Girls’ Identities

Read Moulitsas' revolting comments on the girls in question.

nevadabob said...

"Is she still accepting pictures of cocks twice her age?"

She's the whore, right? And so it starts. This reminds us of what they did to Bill Clinton victim Paula Jones, also the victim of a flashing that eventually led to Bill Clinton's conviction.

SevenMachos are you trying to suggest that this innocent victim solicited thephotograph of the Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner's erect penis?

Because there has been no evidence put forth by anyone that the victim solicited the photograph.

In fact, just the opposite. Rep. Anthony Weiner claims his account was hacked and that the photograph of his penis was flashed at her illegally without his knowledge or consent.

This young student is the innocent victim of an illegal flashing by a pervert. Weiner claims he is not that pervert, and we all know he's lying through is teeth to avoid jail, but there is absolutely no evidence thus far that should cause you to blame the innocent victim.

So stop being a fucking douchebag.

Fred4Pres said...

The most likely theory is Weiner was trying to tweet Ginger Lee with his pup tent pictures, the girl from Seattle was a different "g", and things went south from there.

That is what you get when you try to twitter one handed.

Rialby said...

Every girl who puts their cleavage picture on Facebook and/or Twitter wants this kind of attention. Until they get it. Then they don't want to be known as the cute chick with the great rack, they want their own reality show. That doesn't just focus on their rack. It must be hell being a fourth wave feminist. Althouse, what think you?

SteveR said...

If you want to change some things in your life, change some things in your life.

paminwi said...

If she wants to be anonymous picking the NY Post as her place to say that is truly ridiculous! But then again her options for a summer job are a "hostess" or "law firm assistant". What kind of "hostess" are we talking about here?

nevadabob said...

"Every girl who puts their cleavage picture on Facebook and/or Twitter wants this kind of attention."

Yeah, all these Facebook whores they're just asking to be raped by Democrat Congressmen, so they shouldn't dress so provocatively.

Is that it, counselor?

They're going to make her into a white trailer trash whore to try to save Bill Clinton ... I mean Anthony Weiner.

Sticking to the script pretty tightly these Democrats are.

RuyDiaz said...

The most likely theory is Weiner was trying to tweet Ginger Lee with his pup tent pictures, the girl from Seattle was a different "g", and things went south from there.

No. The most likely theory is that 'the girl from Seattle' was flirting with the Weiner, and the Weiner thought it was time for the close-up. She's now embarrassed and trying to patch things up with her family and boyfriend. Nothing out of the ordinary here.

Dead Julius said...

"Is anyone interested in this person?" "This person"??? In the post title?

That's an interesting choice of words used to refer to Ms. Cordova. Reminds me of Bill Clinton's remark about Monica Lewinsky: "I did not have sex with that woman."

This person, that woman. Both are examples of degrading language.

She's been harassed-- and her family has been harassed-- by the press all week. All that time she's ignored the journo-stalkers. Now she gives one interview and folks like Coketown and MadisonMan attack her as a media whore in these comments. Folks on other sites are much worse.

I think it's disgusting what has been done to her. She is not a public figure. Her privacy should have been more respected, and people like Althouse and Breitbart should have spoken out more forcefully about that when the dick tweet was first reported.

Seven Machos said...

Okay Bob. You're right. There's nothing hilarious about this story. No jokes allowed.

RuyDiaz said...

By the way, from the article it seems that, whatever happenned, she won't take a bullet for Weiner. Good for her.

Seven Machos said...

Shorter Julius: people who aren't powerless hacks like Julius should do Julius's bidding.

nevadabob said...

"No. The most likely theory is that ..."

There is no "most likely theory."

There is no theory at all. Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner's damage control team has now admitted in interviews with journalists that Weiner has a pattern and practice of sending photographs of his erect penis to young girls he meets on the internet.

Those are facts. Not theories.

He is what is known in sexual dysfunction circles as: an exhibitionist. Exhibitionism is a mental defect and sexual disorder that is recognized by the medical community and is treatable if the person gets help.

That's not a theory.

Weiner's own damage control team has admitted these facts to journalists.

edutcher said...

I don't blame her. I'm sure the phone calls, etc., must be insane.

DADvocate said...

No.

James Arness has died. Gunsmoke will live forever, I hope. It embodied the American spirit that liberals have been trying to stomp out.


He was one of The Duke's finds.

The story goes he was first off the assault boat at Anzio because his company commander was short and wanted to see how deep the water was.

The only time I ever liked "Gunsmoke" was when Burt Reynolds was in it, but Arness in his later career did a gritty little cop show that had a "Dragnet" sensibility that worked very well.

Well, I hope he had a good life.

paminwi said...

Hey Dead Julius: take some time and read Tommy Christopher(who hardly loves Breitbart)@ Mediaite and see that he says it WAS NOT Breitbart who outed this girl (or any other girl who was involved) It was your friends at the DAILY KOS!

nevadabob said...

"There's nothing hilarious about this story. No jokes allowed."

You're not making jokes. You're attempting to deflect attention away from Rep. Weiner and onto the innocent victim of his crime.

There is nothing funny about that.

Rep. Anthony Weiner is a sick individual who requires medical intervention to cure him of the sexual disorder he has called exhibitionism. That's not funny. he's a sick, sick man who requires medical assistance.

Just because you can't see his injury doesn't mean he's not sick. If his aorta was open and he was bleeding to death from his jugular vein, someone would call an ambulance. But just because his sickness is in his mind, nobody wants to see him get help.

That's not funny.

The girl is an innocent victim of a crime. She is either

a) the victim of the crime of hacking, or

b) the victim of the crime of flashing by Rep. Weiner.

So, no, I don't think it's funny that you would tell jokes about an innocent student "accepting pictures of cocks twice her age" since she never solicited a picture of this sick man's penis.

I'm pretty sure if some cocksucker Congressman starts stalking your kid on the internet and sending her unsolicited pictures of his cock, you wouldn't be making jokes about it.

kent said...

Oopsie.

Phil 3:14 said...

When the Weiner story started there was growing excitement as bloggers stood up and took notice, stretching to catch a glimpse of the object of desire.

And when she appeared commenters garnered their creative juices and thrust themselves into the issue at hand

And when all was said and done they claimed that surely Miss Cordova knew what was coming.

nevadabob said...

Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner has a pattern and practice of sending obscenely lewd pictures of his penis to young girls he meets on the internet.

NY Post: Weiner has admitted he sent porn star Ginger Lee at least one private Twitter message, but has declined to reveal the content and claims they've never met.

Where does Miss Cordova go to get her good name back?

BT said...

Where is Jesse Jackson? Why isn't he protecting her from this lecherous white congressman?

My predictions, emphasis on dic, are that nothing will happen to weiner. He will continue to be married, he will continue to be re-elected time and again, he will continue to be taken seriously in the press and he will go on to champion womyn's causes in congress just like Teddy K and Bill Clinton and the feministas will love him. There won't be no resignation. That is for R hayseeds only.

kent said...

nevadabob said...

Ann Althouse Claimed: "I am not hearing anyone saying anything negative about her. Melt back into private life."

Ann, you need to take a good hard look at your own comment section, in which there are extremely negative unprovoked comments about Ms. Cordova.

The very first comment by SevenMachs, is this doozy: "Is she still accepting pictures of cocks twice her age?"

I would submit to you that such comments are extremely negative, and extremely available to you and sorta knocks down your theory that nobody is saying anything negative about Ms. Cordova.

They're outright saying right on your blog that she is "accepting pictures of cocks twice her age" as if she is some internet floozy who wanted Rep. Weiner to criminally flash her.

The fact of the matter is that some Democrat boosters ARE saying very unflattering things about Ms. Cordova - as part of a pattern of how they destroy the victim. Just like they did to Paula Jones and Jennifer Flowers.

And Ms. Cordova has the right to grant an interview with the press to try to recover her good name and reputation without aspersions being cast on her motives by you.

Otherwise, people like SevenMachos and the others who are paid to destroy peoples reputations in the service of mentally ill perverted Congressmen will get away with their character assassinations unchallenged.

I think you should revisit your statement.

Coketown said...

Can Ann be guilty of what nevadabob claims if the comments were made after the fact?

Do Ann's commenters count as "anyone"? The reason we comment is because we don't have a substantial soapbox of our own to share our nuanced opinions. We're nobodies.

I think nevadabob should revisit his comment.

And I think Ms. Cordova should stop taking make-up tips from Miss Piggy.

I wasn't interested in her. I didn't even include her name until she came forward and wrote about herself, and now, a second time, she's giving a statement and posing.

What you are doing is transparent. You are trying to protect Weiner by saying if we talk about Weiner, we are necessarily dragging this woman through everything. Sorry, I won't give Weiner that cover. It would be like saying leave DSK alone to protect the maid he allegedly raped.

Sorry, I'm going to talk about it. Trying to make me look bad for "harassing" her is the kind of pushback I have learned to see a mile away.

kent said...

Maddow gave the Weiner a good drubbing...? ;)

nevadabob said...

"I think Ms. Cordova should stop taking make-up tips from Miss Piggy."

Here again we have Democrats demonizing and "slut-izing" the victim of a Democrat Representatives flashing crimes.

Ms. Cordova didn't do anything except be on the receiving end of a pervert's flash. Another pervert Democrat.

And yet, she has to endure this kind of harsh, unprovoked commentary from Democrats.

It's sickening how Democrats are Swift-boating this innocent student.

Rep. Weiner ... call off your attack dogs!

nevadabob said...

For those unfamiliar with Twitter, Genette Cordova, the innocent student who was the victim of the crime of flashing by Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner, has taken to Twitter to denounce the New York Post for printing her off the record comments to a reporter who unethically posed as a freelance photographer.

She claims she never authorized any interview. "If I've refused to do interviews with credible shows like Good Morning America, why would I give an interview to the New York Post?"

Comrade X said...

You fucked up Althouse, you trusted a journalist.

Coketown said...

Here again we have Democrats demonizing and "slut-izing" the victim of a Democrat Representatives flashing crimes.

How dare you--I repeat, how dare you!--draw parallels between Miss Piggy and sluts! She is one of this country's swinest actresses. A true national treasure. And for you to say that just because Ms. Cordova models her makeup on Miss Piggy that this somehow makes her a slut? How dare you!

nevadabob said...

Cordova goes on to say that The Post unethically "got that information surreptitiously" and "passed it off as an interview."

Such newsgathering tactics are widely viewed in journalism schools as being unethical.

She alleges that New York Post employee Reuvon Fenton was the person who posed as a photographer's assistant and that he took her comments out of context and presented them as if she had authorized an interview with the New York Post.

"Reuven Fenton, who posed as a photog assistant, sleazebag "writer" for the @newyorkpost, I'll remember the name," Cordova writes on Twitter.

DADvocate said...

The only time I ever liked "Gunsmoke" was when Burt Reynolds was in it,

Gary Busey was in an episode in 1975. Some of the old TV shows had lots of episodes with guest actors who later made it big. Twilight Zone is packed with famous guest actors.

Fred4Pres said...

Ginger Lee ♥ Weiner.

That is who Weiner was really trying to tweet about his personal pup tent of passion and messed up (trying to do it one handed).

nevadabob said...

Ms. Cordova continues to Tweet about the unethical "interview" the New York Post alleges she gave them.

She denies not only giving them an interview, but says the Post reporter who posed as a photographer's assistant made up quotes and then put them into her mouth.

"Reuven Fenton at @newyorkpost, I clearly remember you suggesting the idea about the pornstar, as well as me being "collateral damage."

FedkaTheConvict said...

Spare me the crocodile tears over Ms. Cordova. She wanted the spotlight and is only now realizing it is hotter than she imagined. Take a look at the photos she had online before this all went down; especially the one in the Bumblebee outfit. She is clearly someone who relishes attention.

I've been following Weinergate since it first started early last Saturday morning (Don't ask why; just check the archives and you'll see I was the first to even mention it on this website).

And even now she is shading the truth for Weiner's benefit. She claimed not have seen the picture that was sent to her yet if you read the TweetDeck/Twitter transcripts you'd see that when it wasn't sent her first response was "WTF."

Even the statement she released to the press on Monday appears to have been written by Weiner's PR people.

Since Saturday night she has opened at least four new Twitter accounts and two new Facebook accounts; that's not the behavior of someone craving privacy.

FedkaTheConvict said...

By the way, that photo was not sent to her by mistake or somehow fatfingered.

nevadabob said...

"That is who Weiner was really trying to tweet ..."

Not much evidence of that. Weiner has tweeted his cock photos to lots of girls he's met on Twitter.

This porn star and Ms. Cordova are not the only ones. He's sent these photos out to many girls.

Two damage control experts working for Weiner told Politico that Weiner is now admitting to them privately that he has a long pattern and practice of flashing young girls on the internet.

Politico: "Two people who spoke to him privately said he had suggested that, as one said, 'he took or sent a photo or photos like this at some point ...'"

It is now undisputed even by Rep. Weiner's internal damage control firm that he has in the past sent these types of obscenely lewd photographs (or "flashings") to young girls he's been having internet communication with.

Please cut this girl some slack for posing for a flattering picture. She herself that she wants to counter and provide an alternative to all the unflattering personal crap that the media is using.

Really bugs me how quick some people are to assume the absolute worst of a pretty girl, AKA "Amanda Knox Syndrome". I do not go for this scarlet letter shite at all.

(This is NOT in reference to anything SevenMachos said, as he was clearly joking)

nevadabob said...

"Were Anthony Weiner and Jerry Nadler involved in the nuts & sluts campaign against Lewinsky?"

No, but Bill Clinton officiated at Anthony Weiner's wedding. So, I have a pretty good idea from whom he is getting his political advice. It's following Clinton's Lewinsky template to a tee.

Should result in about the same effect, too - perjury charges and eventual impeachment for the flashy Democrat.

Fred4Pres said...

Yes there is a Ginger Lee connection to Anthony Weiner.

But I'm not trying to protect Weiner. I think Weiner should resign. I wrote in previous comment sections that I have no problem with you or anyone else going after him, and that he deserves to be attacked.

I am disappointed, Althouse, that you judge my intentions so wrongly. I wonder why you have... is it because you are turning into a partisan?

nevadabob said...

@Fred

Not suggesting there isn't a connection between the flashy Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner and the porn star. Clearly there is a connection between Anthony Weiner and this porn star. He's admitted that (even though he refuses to tell reporters what he was Tweeting to the porn star).

But are you suggesting this is the ONLY person he was sending obscenely lewd photos to over the internet?

Roger J. said...

I have no sympathy for neither--you put your shit on the internet, 4 billion people have access to it.

Both Ms Cordova and Mr Weiner need to grow up--and get a whole hell of a lot smarter.

@AnnAlthouse

You are a verified member and certified user of Twitter who has recommended that others use it.

I'd recommend that you follow @GennetteC. This way, you can remove the unethical media gatekeepers at the NY Post who are between you and the source herself.

kwood said...

How is that a joke? Or funny?

It's just locker-room humor, and giving the persona his name-sake brings to mind, perfectly fitting.

If I said it, being a relative stranger of unknown character, it would sound perverted or cruel.

Machos is an established character around here. Coming from him, it sounds perverted, but funny.

Sorry if you disagree.

nevadabob said...

"Coming from him, it sounds perverted, but funny."

Well, I certainly didn't "get it."

SevenMachos writing that he'd fuck the innocent victim of a flashing crime? That's pretty over the top.

We have to put that in context with a few facts:

1) There's a "nut or slut" campaign being waged against this girl ...

2) reminiscent of the "nut or slut" campaign instituted against Monica Lewinsky, Gennifer Flowers and Paula Jones by ...

3) Bill Clinton ...

4) the same guy who officiated ...

5) at Anthony Weiner's wedding 8 months ago.

Context.

So maybe I'm not getting the joke because it looks an awful lot like the beginning stages of the typical Bill Clinton recommended "nut or slut routine" any time they're caught - literally - with their pants down.

The young lady has learned more about journalism this past week than in all her previous years in school. I don't thint she's been slutified. She's not guilty of anything more than flirting with a famous man and even that's arguable. I'm sympathetic to her plight and wish her well.....I don't think this has to end badly. She's achieved a measure of fame which she can cash in on. No, she doesn't have to pose for Playboy. She can be the weather girl at the local station. Being famous should not be a handicap for a journalism major....They say if you lie down with dogs, you get fleas. Well, if you flirt with Weiners, you're going to get dick jokes. She's in the middle of a funny scandal, and it's somethimes tricky to isolate the prat from the pratfall.

"The Weiner thing just has too many bad jokes going for it. Take advantage of a godsent situation and carry on."

Oh, I agree.

I think jokes made at Anthony Weiner's expense are completely appropriate and part of the tussle of political life in America. He stepped into the arena willingly. He's a public figure by his own choice. He's a New York politician and knows what the deal is concerning the rough-and-tumble of the New York political scene.

The innocent victim of his crime, however, should be out of bounds. She's not a public figure and did not choose to become associated with his flashing episodes. She's just a young girl in Seattle who he decided to stalk.

I think she deserves whatever anonymity she can find and I think it's wise to have the good taste to leave her be.

Seven Machos said...

Please, as I come out the door willingly for the photo-op I've arranged, stop taking pictures of me!

mr said...

Oh, ok then. Carry on.

nevadabob said...

"you have several times asserted that Rep. Weiner is an exhibitionist with a history of sending lurid pictures to minor girls."

Sure.

Two sources inside the campaign to save Democrat Anthony Weiner's congressional career and who are part of his damage control team recently spoke to journalists Jon Allen and Byron Tau, who work for Politico ... an internet news site devoted primarily to politics.

Those sources told these two journalists that Congressman Weiner has revealed to them privately that he has, in the past, sent precisely these kinds of obscenely lewd exhibitionist photographs to other young girls on the internet and that's why he can't say with any certitude that the photograph of his erect penis associated with the Seattle student is not his.

It could be his, he has said, because this is something he admits that he does. He exposes his genitals via photographs to young girls on the internet and has done this in the past, these sources told Politico.

The Congressman has a mental defect. A sexual disorder known as: exhibitionism. It's a widely-known about disorder and it's treatable with drugs and therapy.

Here is the link to these journalists investigative piece:

http://goo.gl/k8CnZ

And here is a link that explains the mental disease known as "exhibitionism" which is usually treated with a combination of psychotherapy, medication and adjunctive treatments that can include electroshock therapy.

http://goo.gl/dKOWx

Mr. Weiner needs to be taken to a hospital where he can be administered treatment for his mental illness.

It's a crime nobody will call an ambulance for him even though we're forced (by him and his cohorts) to purchase health insurance.

Got real quiet when I linked didn't it?

Actually, I appreciate the link. Now I know what you are talking about, and can make my own decisions about whether or not the source is credible.
