Anthony Weiner: Hackers posted lewd photos on Twitter
http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0511/55877.html

Rep. Anthony Weiner says social networking identity hacking is to blame for the lewd material that a conservative news website reported was sent from his Twitter and yfrog handles to an unidentified woman from Seattle, Washington.

The New York Democrat told POLITICO he thought it obvious that his account had been taken over, and he tweeted that his Facebook account had been hacked with the abbreviation FB hacked.

A photo of a mans bulging gray boxer-brief underwear was posted to Weiners account with yfrog an online image-sharing site on Saturday night, according to biggovernment.com, which is run by Andrew Breitbart. The photograph is from the waist down, and shows no face.

The weiner gags never get old, I guess, the veteran lawmaker emailed a POLITICO reporter in response on Saturday.

4. They messed with the wrong person this time. Anthony Weiner is not going to be silent while they go
after him. This could actually be a good thing.

What I wanted to really say was Weiner will not take this laying down.... sorry Anthony - you're the best!

5. Jesus- the comments on that story are scary
many commenters have no idea that the Shirley Sherrod/Brietbart thing has been proven to be a hoax. They think Brietbart is a god.

7. Brietbart was featured on C-SPAN a few weeks ago.
They love him.

8. These hacks are very easy for professionals to run down. We
should know in less than a week if he turned it over to the authorities.

9. Who the eff cares?
Are we that much of a puritanical society that we freak out over the body? As long as he's not being hypocritical like some in congress, then what's the big deal? Does Breitbart think that no one has sex or something?

These are the same people that complain if a politician says a naughty word, too, I bet.
