The banner above the should read “Typical Politician”, but U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) finally admitted that he has been lying all week long. The lewd photograph that showed up on his official Twitter account last week was indeed his. 

Fox News reports:

Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., admitted Monday in a stunning press conference that he sent a lewd photo to a woman over Twitter, after claiming for days that he was hacked. Saying he is “deeply ashamed,” he also said he’s had explicit exchanges with six women over the last three years, some of which occurred after he got married in 2010.

But the seven-term congressman said he would not resign, expressing hope that he could win back the trust of his constituents.

Can Rep. Weiner survive this politically?:

“This is probably not a death blow to Weiner’s chances of holding on to his House seat or even his shot at being mayor: New Yorkers are pretty forgiving about these kinds of things,” NYU political science professor Patrick Egan told The Daily Caller. “But in the short term it probably hurts his fundraising.”

[…]

Others say he’s done.

“Congressman Weiner’s political career may well be over,” said Republican Ron Christie. “First the lewd image, then his anger-fueled media encounters have not made him an endearing nor sympathetic figure. Toss in more tweets to a porn star and his lack of certitude about the picture’s authenticity may well have many in New York City questioning his.”

Whether he recovers or not, full-rehabilitation in the public sphere may take some time.

Even though I am a staunch Republican, I truly believe that Rep. Weiner should resign immediately. He lied to every camera placed in front of him last week and only called for a press conference today, because he was backed into a corner that he could not escape.

Quit Question: Do you really want a 46 year-old congressman, who sends lewd photos of himself to 20+ year-old females, in charge of legislation that effects the lives of every American?

*UPDATE* – June 6, 2011 – 10:30 PM.

…Or maybe this whole “Weinergate” scandal isn’t Rep. Weiner’s fault at all. After all, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews believes Rep. Anthony Weiner’s wife may be “partly responsible” for his sexual misconduct:

Really dude?

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-NY-9) Twitter page yesterday?

Answer: He’s showing proud support for the Republican Party!

Well, at least he didn’t mean to…

According to Rep. Weiner’s Twitter page:

It takes a great man to build a barn. Any jackass can kick it down. Campaign ’10: You with the builders or the asses?

Hmm? The last time I checked, the elephant symbolized the GOP and the donkey (or ass) symbolized the Democratic Party. It’s okay Anthony, because the facts were bound to hit you at some point in your life. Personally, I’m glad you made this realization public. 😆

Now this is what I call a political masterpiece!

HAHA! I absolutely love this graphic design/photograph. I knew it was going to be good when I saw this on David Bugnon’s Twitter page:

Priceless! Keep up the great work and let’s hope Scott Brown (R) can pull of the miracle in Massachusetts on Tuesday!

Props!

Thanks to Hot Air, they helped advertise a very awesome graphic design done by davidbugnon from Twitter.

If you don’t know who Hannah Giles is, she is the young lady that teamed up with James O’Keefe to go undercover and found the massive corruption inside ACORN’s offices.

Props to David Bugnon and that huge chainsaw!
