Radar: We have hundreds of explicit Weiner messages; Update: Weiner’s Chris Lee moment?

posted at 1:30 pm on June 6, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

It looks like Andrew Breitbart has some competition for page views today.  The online gossip magazine Radar and its tabloid partner the Star claim to have more than 200 sexually explicit Facebook messages from Anthony Weiner and another woman, predating the Memorial Day weekend scandal by months.  Radar’s Dylan Howard says that Weiner was “sexting” with her in March, discussing his “ridiculous bulge” in a manner reminiscent of the picture that first came to light several days ago:

Another woman has come forward to RadarOnline.com and Star magazine and provided a sexting exchange with embattled New York Representative Anthony Weiner.

The woman says she has 200 sexually explicit messages from Weiner from a Facebook account the Democratic politician no longer uses. …

He told the woman he had a “ridiculous bulge” in his shorts and asked if she “wanna see” it — almost three months before a photo of an erect penis in tight fitting briefs appeared in the pol’s Twitter stream.

It’s a sensational twist to the scandal plaguing the embattled New York congressman. This new woman is middle-aged  and from Nevada.

Apparently, Weiner lost his nerve despite sending several tweets describing his erection at the time, as the woman claims she never got the promised picture.  She claims that the two have never met in person, but that the two of them conducted a 30-minute phone-sex session.  The unnamed source claims Weiner called her from his Congressional office — which should be rather easy to check.

What will he say if (and it’s still a significant if) these allegations pan out?  If Weiner says his Facebook page was hacked, then why was he still conducting his Facebook and other social-media communications two months later?

Presumably, Radar and Star will roll out their new material soon.  Their credibility isn’t exactly at the platinum level, so it will be interesting to see just how much corroborating material they will produce to back up these new claims.  Combined with the new eruptions at Big Government and Big Journalism, though, the onus will be on Weiner to respond to allegations that he used his office for the alleged phone-sex incident and refute the charges.  That puts a big dent in the silence strategy that Weiner adopted about 48 hours too late last week.

Update: Breitbart goes back into the lead with pictures of a shirtless Anthony Weiner, and suggests even more:

The following photograph, reminiscent of that posted by former Rep. Chris Lee (R-NY) on Craigslist earlier this year, was allegedly sent to the young woman on Friday, May 20, 2011 via a Yahoo! email address that she claims was an alternate alias for Rep. Weiner …

n Wednesday, May 18, 2011, Rep. Weiner sent an email to the young woman from that same Yahoo! email address that included the now-infamous grey underwear photograph (attached to the email as “package.JPG”) …

Later that same day, apparently after receiving several images from the young woman, Rep. Weiner allegedly sent another photograph to her from the same Yahoo! email address.

That photograph (attached to the email as “ready.JPG”) is extremely graphic, and leaves nothing to the imagination.

I think we have achieved certitude.

Update II: These were Facebook messages, not Tweets.  I’ve corrected it above.

Its either time for Anthony to resign or Democrats to censor and force him out of the house or the next time there’s any Republican scandal the rebuke will be screw you libs, send your water wiggle down the road before we even think about any action against our guy.

In the word of Colonel Trautman:

“It’s over, Johnny. IT’S OVER!”

Weiner: Nothing is over! Nothing! You just don’t turn it off! It wasn’t my choice of a last name! I was born with it, I didn’t ask for it! And I did what I had to do to live with it! But somebody wouldn’t let it be! And I google my name and I see all those right wingers on the right wing blogs, demeaning me, laughing. Calling me Tony the Wiener and all kinds of vile crap! Who are they to demean me? Who are they? Unless they’ve been me and been in my shorts and know what the hell they’re yelling about!

Weiner will give a press conference today at four p.m. at the Sheraton on 53rd Street. The number of Midtown hotels unassociated with recent sex scandals shrinks a little bit every day.

LOLZ!

Sean just said he’ll carry presser live on radio.
Very sure he’ll resign, he said, considering what Sean says he knows, behind the scenes… Prolly the nudie shots.
We’ll see.
Gotta love the smell of a lib’s poloitical destruction in the afternoon.

According to the headlines, he’s going to talk to the media at 4. I guess he’s going to give Brietbart what for.

Cindy Munford on June 6, 2011 at 3:09 PM

He’ll probably urge us to be patient until the private investigators he hired get to the bottom of this hoax. /

BitterClinger on June 6, 2011 at 3:36 PM

Poor guy. Ya’ll are picking on him! /

Seriously, he had to know this was coming. Why these guys think they can hide anything in the digital world that travels at lightening speed is quite stunning.

WeinerGate coming down to the short strokes.

BobMbx on June 6, 2011 at 3:45 PM

If this woman is telling the truth, then they never even met and therefore never actually consummated anything. Hope it was worth it, Weiner.

But really, he deserves to lose his job just for being this stupid about it. If he can’t even keep his own secrets from the Internet, we certainly shouldn’t be telling him any of the government’s.

Esthier on June 6, 2011 at 3:47 PM

The big Weiner resigns in 4…3…2…

scalleywag on June 6, 2011 at 3:57 PM

Chris Lee resigned over far less. For anyone left-of-center NOT to be howling for Weiner to resign is hypocrisy at its worst.

redfoxbluestate on June 6, 2011 at 4:49 PM

Dang.

I was hoping for a pie.

Chickyraptor on June 6, 2011 at 5:03 PM

It’s all a setup perpetrated by the right wing.

Reminder to the dolts in the government: NOTHING on the internet is private. Of all the people on the planet those nanny-state, nosy, money-suckers should be aware of that.
