It takes a certain type of woman to set his heart a-Twitter.One young lady listed has all of nine followers. Amazing coincidence how Weiner is one of them, apparently. Another has 36, but amazingly Weiner is one of them.
Rep. Anthony Weiner follows only a select 198 of his nearly 49,000 Twitter fans -- and a surprising number of them are total babes.
Yesterday, outside his DC office, the model-loving, married congressman testily refused to talk about the pretty women he's following.
He flashed a tight, uncomfortable smile and avoided eye contract as he tried to deflect point-blank questions from reporters about whether or not he had sent a crotch shot of himself in underwear to a 21-year-old co-ed in Seattle.
Weiner's sultry stable of fans should come as no surprise. Every year, he begs the State Department to give red-hot international runway models more travel visas.
Weiner generally follows women who send him Twitter messages to cheer him on -- usually over one of his many appearances on TV to champion the left -- and he then replies with an offer:
"Thanks so much for following me. Would you like me to follow you? Use #WeinerYes," he writes.
He has even sent private Twitter messages to porn star Ginger Lee, who once tweeted, "You know it's a good day when you wake up to a [direct message] from @RepWeiner."
It appears that Weiner no longer follows her account. She declined comment.
Most people Weiner follows are connected to politics, the media or professional sports.
And some of the sweet young things he follows say they're surprised.
"He tweeted me back asking if I thought it was all right if he could follow me. I was flattered he wanted to follow me back. I'm not in politics," New Jersey nurse Nicole Aquino told The Post. "I followed him originally."
The Post opinion page today calls Weiner a creep (there's an understatement) and calls for an investigation. He's not getting much support from New York Daily News readers, either.
New York Magazine isn't buying his evasions.
Evading questions, however, is a strategy most often utilized by people with something to hide, and will only further pique the media's interest. Weiner either has something to hide, or he has no idea how the media operates.If Weiner thinks when he wakes up today this story will have faded, well, boy, is he in for a surprise.
Some lefties, meanwhile, bitterly cling to their delusions. How sad.
They've clearly forgotten about human nature and why Weiner's non-answers just aren't holding up.
The diehards on the left plan to torch what little credibility they have left defending this turd, but some New York pols are enjoying his demise.
Weiner’s flat refusal to engage may or may not serve him well in Washington’s totally partisan environment, in which Democrats will defend him, and Republicans attack him, as usual. Back in New York, meanwhile, allies of his rivals - former comptroller William Thompson, Public Advocate Bill DeBlasio, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Democrats all - are licking their chops.It could be over in five minutes if he's innocent and just handed over his Blackberry. Twitter could also quickly verify where and what it was sent from.
“This is New York - he’s in deep doo-doo when it comes to future aspirations,” said a pleased adviser to one of his rivals. “You’ve got every enemy of his, and interested political reporters, all digging, because there’s something too weird about this.”
He's clearly hiding something.
Now his story has gone international. Good luck "moving on" from this, Weenie.
