With it clear that Weinergate wasn’t disappearing anytime soon, yesterday Anthony Weiner held a press conference yesterday to announce that he was resigning from his post in the House of Representatives. “I had hoped to be able to continue the work that my constituents elected me to do,” he said. “Unfortunately, the distraction that I myself have created has made that impossible.”
But it does not look like Anthony will be unemployed for long. Today, both Larry Flynt and the television show “Entourage” reached out to him, offering him work. Keep reading »
Oh dear, college pictures of Anthony Weiner in ladywear have surfaced. I think we should thank The National Enquirer for uncovering Screech’s long lost twin. No wonder he was texting pictures of his d**k, he was trying to compensate for being a big nerdball in college. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
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 »
Dude. Stop what you’re doing. Put headphones on. Bill Maher and Jane Lynch‘s dramatic reading of sexts between Rep. Anthony Weiner and a Vegas blackjack dealer named Lisa are amazing. The language is rated-R and the anatomical imagery conjured is, shall we say, vivid, so this video is definitely not safe for work … or for lunch. [Mediaite] Keep reading »
It’s been a busy few weeks for political sex scandals. First we found out that Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a love child—well, possibly two—more than 10 years ago without wife Maria Shriver‘s knowledge. And then came Weinergate, in which Democrat Anthony Weiner ‘fessed up to sexting with six women, even sending one of them a picture of his … wiener.
This has us wondering—which political party has the worst sex scandals? After the jump, a highly scientific study*. 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 »
