U.S. Capitol Police: No investigation into Weinergate under way yet

According to a spokeswoman for the U.S. Capitol Police, there is currently no active investigation into claims by New York congressman Anthony Weiner that his Twitter and Facebook accounts were “hacked” this past Friday night. Weiner and his spokesman Dave Arnold have both said publicly that it was a hacker, not the congressman, who posted a lewd photograph of a man’s erect penis underneath gray boxer-briefs on Weiner’s official verified Twitter account. Arnold told The Daily Caller that Weiner has hired an attorney to advise him on possible “civil or criminal actions.”

Several questions still remain unanswered, however. For instance, TheDC has asked Arnold at least four times if the man in the photo was Weiner. Arnold has not answered.
