In a tearful statement to the media, Rep. Anthony Weiner this afternoon admitted he posted a picture of his own dick to Twitter. Not only that, he says he's engaged in "inappropriate" online communications with at least six other women.
Anthony Weiner was scheduled to hold a press conference at 4pm to address Weinergate. Well, four o'clock came around and Weiner didn't show up. But Andrew Breitbart, whose Big Government website first published the original Weinergate photo, did.
Here's a new picture of a bare-chested Anthony Weiner, which a young woman says he emailed her on May 20, 2011. If you look closely, you can see Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, cuddling in a picture in the background. You can also see Weiner with Bill Clinton in the picture over his left shoulder. If only Weiner had caught Clinton's stare in the mirror's reflection—he may have reconsidered what he was about to do!
Shirley Sherrod, who was fired from her USDA job last year after Andrew Breitbart posted online an edited video of her, has filed a lawsuit for libel and slander against Breitbart in D.C. Superior Court. The suit was filed on Friday, and Breitbart was served with it this weekend, while attending the Conservative Political Action Conference, according to The New York Times.
The annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) starts tomorrow in Washington, D.C. You may think that hanging out with the likes of Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, talking about why poor people are to blame for all of America's problems, sounds about as appealing as an icepick to the eye.
Last night, David Letterman welcomed Rachel Maddow to the Late Show and—while discussing Shirley Sherrod/Andrew Breitbart—got uncharacteristically political, asking, "How much time was wasted by this asshole fucking around?" Shots were fired at Fox News, too. Video inside.
On Tuesday, Shirley Sherrod, a black USDA employee, resigned, under pressure from the White House, after conservative publisher Andrew Breitbart published a video where she seemed to admit to anti-white discrimination. Except the video shows her saying the exact opposite.
