Weiner's changing story: Was he hacked or was it a "prank"?

Over the weekend I said that I suspect this will not end well for Congressman Weiner. I still think I’m right. Congressman Weiner stands accused of sending a lewd picture to a young girl via Twitter. He says he didn’t do it. At first his office said his Twitter account was “hacked.” Now he says it was all a “prank.” This is an important change in language because to claim his account was hacked is to claim he was a victim of a crime. Meanwhile a prank is something he can wave away.

Meanwhile, the left has been all over the place. They seem torn between wanting this all to go away and wanting to pin it on Andrew Breitbart or some other conservatives to be named later. That’s a problem because Breitbart et al seem perfectly happy to have an investigation…

And what if Weiner’s innocent and this is a dirty trick by some rightwingers? Don’t we need to know that? Shouldn’t they be exposed? (You know what I mean! Do you people have any idea how hard it is not to pepper this post with double entendre?).
