Action figurine company HeroBuilders.com has wasted no time jumping on Weinergate. They have released an Anthony Weiner doll that comes in two versions—regular ($39.95) and anatomically correct ($49.95). While the face looks nothing like Weiner to me, he does come bedecked in gym clothes and has a label on his shorts that says “Tweet this.” I guess you could make him bump plastic parts with Barbie?

Just a few days after the world got a peek at Anthony Weiner’s wiener, his spokesperson made a big announcement—Weiner is taking a leave of absence from his post on Capitol Hill to “seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person.” In other words, like sex scandalites Jesse James and Tiger Woods before him—who I should point out, had actual sex a lot in the scandals that cost them their wives and reputations—Anthony is checking into sex rehab. Here’s hoping Weiner gets some good therapy and learns what he was seeking in sending out sexy emails to six different women despite being married.
But at the same time, the newest Weiner pic to surface might be the most damaging. Yeah, even more damaging than his peen shot. Keep reading »
On Monday, when conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart (left) released the images Anthony Weiner had sent to assorted e-conquests in a slow reveal throughout the day, Breitbart made it clear that he was not going to reveal one final image, the most lewd of the bunch. “I am doing this to save his family,” he explained. “I’m trying to do the decent thing here and not release the photo.” Except that yesterday, Breitbart put the image on his phone and showed it to Opie and Anhony while doing a radio interview with them. The infamous shock jocks were filming the interview and took a screengrab of the picture. They promptly posted it on their Twitter feed.
Brietbart, of course, seemed surprised. Keep reading »
Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s staff has the same concern as men afraid of clap: protecting their Weiners, er, wieners. The latter group can protect themselves with these distasteful but nevertheless amusing $4.95 Weiner condoms. Ten points to the perv who thought to buy the domain name for “weiner condoms.” [Weiner Condoms via Jezebel] Keep reading »

UPDATE: Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted in a press conference today that he had sexual conversations over Facebook and sent scantily clad pics of his penis and his chest to numerous women, whom he thought were his “friends.” Weiner said he had inappropriate conversations with six women, some before his marriage began and some afterwards. Weiner claims he never met any of the women in person and didn’t have sex outside of marriage. His wife, Huma Abedin, who is the top aide to Hillary Clinton, was not beside him at the press conference, but Weiner said the couple has no plans to separate. His voice cracking, Weiner repeatedly apologized to his wife and his constituents, but said he has no intention of resigning. You can read quotes from Weiner’s press conference and watch it from the beginning at Talking Points Memo.
Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s weiner isn’t the only body part he may have photographed: today a shirtless pic of Anthony Weiner’s bare chest hit the web. As promised, conservative wonk Andrew Breitbart has been leaking saucy pics of the Democratic rep all day. Big Government posted one image this morning depicting Weiner, fully clothed, sitting next to his cats. He sent it from his AOL account along with the title, “Me and the pussys.” This newest pic of Weiner shirtless (above) makes us wonder, 1) does he wax and 2) are there more pics to come where he’s taking it all off?

In case you are not already acquainted, meet Anthony Weiner, a Democratic Congressman from New York. On Friday, a strange image appeared on his Twitter feed—a photo of a man’s crotch in a pair of underwear taken on a Blackberry. The image was addressed to a 21-year-old student in Seattle named Gennette Cordova (who says she never met the Congressman, though is a fan) but was visible to all Weiner’s followers. “I was pranked, I was hacked, I was punked,” Weiner explained when the press caught wind of the story. “Someone sent out the picture. I’m an easy name to make fun of, and I think that’s what happened .. I didn’t send that picture out. I can’t say with certitude [the picture isn't me]. Pictures can be manipulated.” Weiner explained that he had hired a private security firm to look into the hacking and where the photo came from. “We’re treating it as a prank, not treating it as a national security invasion or anything,” he said. He also said that hackers have attempted to access his Facebook and Twitter accounts before.
At first, Weiner seemed defensive here. But as yesterday wore on, he seemed to take a new tactic—making peen jokes. And he has gotten in some pretty good ones, which I guess shouldn’t be too surprising considering that the man has had the last name Weiner all his life. After the jump, his best jabs. Keep reading »
