New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, who found himself at the center of a media firestorm this week after a lewd photo appeared on his Twitter stream, has canceled a Friday evening appearance in Wisconsin in order to spend time with his wife.Maybe if he spent more time with his wife he wouldn't have been so busy sending photos of his junk around to Twitter admirers.
Weiner had been slated to speak at the Wisconsin Democratic Party’s annual convention Friday at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee. But he told state party officials that he would not attend the convention and would instead spend the weekend in New York with his wife, Huma Abedin, Wisconsin Democratic Party Communications Director Graeme Zielinski confirmed Friday afternoon.
Meanwhile, the Republican who ran against him last year is mulling another challenge in 2012. He's letting Weiner stew in his own mess for now.
Turner said he was scratching his head over how Weiner has handled the incident. Not only has Weiner declined to refer the case to federal authorities to find the hacker, but he's hinted that the kinky photo might be of him.On the upside, a Friday night passed without Weiner exposing himself for anyone.
"Hacking into a congressional account is serious business. There's probably a reason he won't let authorities investigate. We can only speculate," Turner said.
"The whole thing is kind of unseemly. The best thing the opposition can do is find a good seat, get some popcorn and enjoy the show. There is no need to pile on here. He's doing a wonderful job himself."
Three days and no tweets now, Tony? What's the matter, Huma got your Blackberry or something?
