I’m not terribly impressed by this trumped-up scandal involving a picture tweeted from Rep. Weiner’s account.
a. Nobody should immediately trust a story first reported by Breitbart or his associates. Hasn’t the media learned this lesson already, after ACORN and Sherrod?
b. What was the actual foul supposed to be, assuming it’s true? That Rep. Weiner at some point had taken a picture of himself in his undies and put it on his internet photo storage site? That seems pretty darn tame. We don’t really know how or why the photo then appeared on his Twitter. In the worst case, he broadcast it himself by accident? Still not a big deal. Or someone posted it there as a political prank? Then he did nothing wrong at all.
