  •  If the updated news is correct (0+ / 0-)

    (and I have no reason to doubt it), Mikey was just misinformed, or more likely, under-informed like many of us.
    I know him to be a truthful and intelligent poster.
    In fact, I too had not heard the news that the story was fully resolved without further damage to the Congressman's reputation.
    As Mark Twain famously said, "A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes."
    The damage is still out there, and unfortunately, will remain out there. To the MSM, the truth is just not as sexy as the fable and Weiner's total innocence in this charge will continue to be under-reported.
    If the Delaware case has been totally closed, that's great news and thank you for pointing it out.
    Still, it's always a dangerous assumption to believe the person on the other end of your tweet is the person they claim to be. In Weiner's case, at least one of them turned out to be a BFF of Andrew Breitbart.

    •  At least one poster *was* deliberately malicious (0+ / 0-)

      Said poster was told and told and told about the police investigating the matter and finding nothing in it - but said poster kept on posting the LIES.

      There are also Kossacks  - including, I fear, Fishgrease - whose opinions on the matter have been so tainted by all the lies that they are no longer capable of objectively analyzing the facts. Even when they are told that the police closed the case for lack of so much as a sniff of suspicious conduct, they still kvetch about how "creepy" and "suspicious" and "skeevy" the non-relationship "was", and how it "might" or "would" have "gone there" "if allowed to continue".

      If it's
      Not your body
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      AND it's
      None of your damn business!
