Rep. Weiner at first claimed his twitter was hacked. And can’t that be a painful thing, in the
wrong hands? But as of today, June 6,
2011, D-Day for Peter’s sake, the now feckless photog is claiming he lied about
his previous claim. Makes one wonder
what the current “D” in D-Day stands for.

politics are type A+ personalities who believe they’re made of Teflon and
nothing will stick to them. Rep. Weiner’s
indiscretions are sticky. He needs to
hang his head low, resign, and ask for forgiveness in a sincere manner.
