    That is my entire point. He has no reason to not have done what he done. He doesn't owe me or anyone else an explanation. I agree w/ not lying. But I'm questioning the issue before it ever becomes a lie. He shouldn't have been asked. It was consensual. It was not related to his work. The public does not own the sexual behaviors of our politicians, nor are we owed explanations when they engage in consensual behaviors.

      Are you joking?

      A Congresspersons sends an out in the open tweet of his package and you think no one should ask about it?  

      Now come on let's be honest about how this happened Anthony even said it himself.  Dude was being casual tweeting about hockey and dong and he got confused which tweets were going where.  He f'd it up and it happened to quick for him to really think about it.

      See that's the real gig there.  He's sitting up on a Saturday just tweeted a real oops in the open took it down praying no one saw it and his arch band of haters caught it, but the firestorm was started by him.  I mean he called MSM reporters actual Jackasses.  How the fuck are you gonna do that when you know you're lying.

      Oh and by the by a couple of those women including Gloria Allred's client stated it was not consensual.  They in fact wanted to discuss politics, but Weiner wanted to discuss wang.  That must be why he only followed women and women who said he was cute or wanted to be his boyfriend, oh and the 17 year old thing was NASTY.  Like Ewwwwwwwww he was grooming that young woman to be the next contestant on who wants to see my penis and I think he was just waiting for her age to ripen, at that is just flat out disgusting to me.

      Every moment in life contains an off ramp. Never be afraid to use it.

        important to distinguish between those events that were consensual and those that weren't.
        This:

        is a problem. And the problem is a consent issue, not a wang issue.

        And yes, I think we should have a press corp that is more interested in climate change and deficit ceilings than AW's wang.

        So, no, I'm not joking.
