Poor Congressman Anthony Weiner. As if it weren't tough enough making a living out of bashing Arabs and Palestinians to satisfy New York's pro-Israel voters.Well, we can't disagree with that last part. Read the rest. It quickly descends into Jew-hating nonsense that has nothing to do with anything, but then again, it's Weiner's wife's mentor Hillary Clinton who told us what a valuable news source Al Jazeera was.
Now the self-deprecating references have taken a difficult, bizarre turn for the New York representative, after a lewd photo of a man clad only in underwear was sent from his Twitter account to a college student.
Weiner refuses to acknowledge in any of the interviews that the photo is definitively not a picture of him. Weiner further alleges he was hacked and wants an investigation. Yet days into the fray and--here comes the real surprise - no FBI investigation has been initiated.
Congressman Weiner knows better. Were federal agents to investigate at his initiation and determine Weiner's own involvement (i.e., that this was not a case of hacking), then the Congressman would be committing a felony for a making false statements, intentionally misleading federal agents, not to mention be wasting everyones time and tax payer dollars.
And that's presuming Weiner did send the photo and was not auditioning for a post-Congress career as an underwear model.
If he did not send the photo, an investigation would be the most logical course of action, given he is a serving US Congressman and those breaches are rarely taken lightly. Twitter would receive a subpoena. The alleged hacker's IP address could be learned. A warrant would be issued for the computer. An arrest warrant might follow. That would pretty much be the the end of story.
