On Friday, Weiner's 40,000 Twitter followers were exposed to a below-the-waist image of an aroused man's boxer-briefs in what appeared to be a private missive posted publicly by mistake. It had been sent to 21-year-old Gennette Nicole Cordova of Seattle, whom he follows on Twitter.You can check out his Twitter feed here. There's zero evidence to show he's a blogger. Can we get the basic facts correct here, New York Post? By the way, the left is furiously trying to blame Wolfe for the "prank," as Weiner now weakly calls it. Good luck with that.
Political opponents seized on the incident and compared Weiner to married former upstate GOP Rep. Chris Lee, who quit last year after being caught trolling http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.giffor dates on Craigslist.
Then, Weiner's backers questioned why conservative blogger Dan Wolfe, who had been hinting about a Weiner scandal for weeks, appeared to be the only person to have noticed the dirty image and retweeted it. Wolfe yesterday told The Post he simply retweeted it from the original posting.
Update: Speaking of shoddy journalism, the New York Times glowingly portrays Weiner as some kind of Twitter icon while making zero effort to investigate the story. Crap like this should be in Tiger Beat, not the New York Times.
