Rep. Anthony Weiner said Wednesday that he “can’t say with certitude” whether a lewd picture posted on Twitter over the weekend was not him, a comment likely to add fuel to the controversy surrounding the New York Democrat.Sorry, buddy. You just might have some explaining to do.
“My system was hacked,” said Weiner in an interview with NBC’s Luke Russert. “Pictures can be manipulated. Pictures can be dropped in and inserted.”
In a separate conversation with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Weiner again refused to say that the image wasn’t him but added: “It certainly doesn’t look familiar to me.”
Weiner said he had asked a firm to do a “forensic examination of what happened” but did not specify the name of the company he had hired. His office said Monday that the congressman had retained an attorney following the incident.
Weiner is regarded as a leading contender for the 2013 NYC mayoral race.
I don't know how it's possible to not identify a photo of your own junk. Trust me, I know my junk quite well. I could easily pick it out of a police lineup if the situation arose.
No pun intended.
I'm still not saying he sent the photo to that girl. But I think there's a good chance this guy's covering up something.
Question: What's really happening here?!?
