This was only a matter of time, wasn't it?   Is this another series of dastardly, inexplicable cyber hacks?  Or does Congressman Anthony Weiner have a penchant for sending prurient photos of himself to women who aren't his wife?  What an impossible riddle.  As Greg notes below, liberal tormentor extraordinaire, Andrew Breitbart, has the goods:
 

BigGovernment.com and BigJournalism.com have reported throughout the morning about the emergence of new details in the Weinergate saga, after a young woman came forward with new information that tends to undermine severely the theory that Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) was the victim of a “prank” or a “hack.”

The following photograph, reminiscent of that posted by former Rep. Chris Lee (R-NY) on Craigslist earlier this year, was allegedly sent to the young woman on Friday, May 20, 2011 via a Yahoo! email address that she claims was an alternate alias for Rep. Weiner:


This is the most explicit image Breitbart has released so far, the other two being an innocent-seeming, playful picture of the Congressman, and another shot captioned with a sexual double-entendre.   Should Weiner schedule another press conference now, or might he hold off until yet another shoe drops:


...Later that same day, apparently after receiving several images from the young woman, Rep. Weiner allegedly sent another photograph to her from the same Yahoo! email address.  That photograph (attached to the email as “ready.JPG”) is extremely graphic, and leaves nothing to the imagination.


UPDATE - One of my sources within Breitbart, Inc. describes this yet-unseen photo as "beyond NSFW" (not safe for work).  Another Breitbart source tells me they have additional "extremely explicit material" in their possession.  At least one image is allegedly so graphic that there's "no way" it could appear on the evening news.  How, and if, the material will be released is the subject of "ongoing internal discussions."


UPDATE II - Gossip site Radar Online claims to have "200 sexually explicit messages" from Rep. Weiner, provided by another woman.


UPDATE III - Anthony Weiner has scheduled a 4pm ET news conference.  Place your bets: Resigning, apologizing, doubling-down, or none of the above?


UPDATE IV - According to local cable network NY-1, Weiner will not resign at his press conference.
