According to multiple reports, former Democratic Congressman and New York City Mayoral Candidate Anthony Weiner hasn't learned his lesson about messaging sexual things to women on Twitter. Emily Zanotti gives her take:
According to the gossip website, The Dirty, who obtained one such lady’s direct message files, there was, allegedly, at least one woman in Anthony Weiner’s life who thought he was in love with her and wanted a long enough physical relationship that he intended to buy her an expensive townhouse in Chicago, and she grabbed their conversations on Formspring and Twitter. The conversations are not confirmed (obviously), but she claims to be confident that she was speaking to the real Anthony Weiner.The woman involved here appears to be a blogger who likes cats, which as Emily points out, explains all the creepy cat photos Weiner sent.
Oh, and bonus? He’s going by a pseudonym. Carlos Danger.
Since this is sort of a family show, we’ll let you read the more explicit (no, seriously, pornographic) direct messages on your own. They aren’t safe for work, and they certainly aren’t safe for anyone who ever wants to look upon Anthony Weiner without having their respective genitals curl up inside their abdomens never to be seen again. Also, they don’t really make sense logistically, which at least makes them slightly entertaining, especially when you consider that she claims that Weiner also had some intriguing sexual preferences, including a shoe fetish, which, of course, puts him in good company with Eliot Spitzer who kept his lovely black socks on during sex with numerous high-priced call girls.
The girl claims that she and Weiner spoke on the phone several times a day for around six months and that most of the calls were phone sex. She claims that she and Weiner were in love, but it seems, at least from the evidence gathered by The Dirty, that the majority of their interactions were sexual and not emotional in nature, though she does maintain that Weiner was interested in purchasing her a pricey Chicago condo at 1235 S. Prairie Ave., an address in the hip, gentrifying South Loop area, right across from Soldier Field, where one- and two-bedroom easily fetch from a quarter to a half million. And the crazier Twitter messages do belie a little bit of depression on Weiner’s part, which is quickly forgotten when you realize how gross he is.
As a reminder (as if we need reminding), Weiner resigned from Congress after a series of pictures surfaced of his private parts. Before he admitted to sending the photos, which were exposed by Andrew Breitbart after Weiner accidentally sent a public tweet of his, ahem, I'll just say "underwear," instead of sending it through a private message. First, Weiner blamed hackers. Then, the media pinned Breitbart as "the hacker." Then, as more and more photos and women surfaced, Weiner held a press conference. Breitbart hijacked the press conference to berate the press, got off the stage and then finally, Weiner apologized to Andrew, his own family, his supporters, his wife and admitted the photos were in fact him and that he sent them. He even said he had made mistakes.
The Anthony Weiner campaign has not issued a comment on the latest situation. Meanwhile, Weiner is ahead in the polls for mayor.
UPDATE: Weiner responds:
“I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have. As I have said in the past, these things that I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress. While some things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there is no question that what I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me. I’ve apologized to Huma and am grateful that she has worked through these issues with me and for her forgiveness. I want to again say that I am very sorry to anyone who was on the receiving end of these messages and the disruption that this has caused. As my wife and I have said, we are focused on moving forward.”
