Watch the pathetic confession from the congressman live here. Nonetheless, a very "regretful" Wiener refuses to step down.

watching. laughing. career suicide. lol
Weiner = Newer I
Barney Frank didn't resign, why should Weiner?
Just another entitled politician. At least some of them have the decency to resign in shame.
how many on the list of "should have resigned" but didn't:
I have been in Congress for more than a half century. I have lived through times of fear and times of hope. Of despair and of achievement. I have seen our government at its best, but today I fear that we see our government at its worst. Robert Byrd
You know, everybody makes mistakes when they are president. William J. Clinton
Yes, but this guy has weiner in his name!
in japan its called suicide
"Just another entitled politician"
Maybe more aptly phrased "Just another entitled Democrat".
I’m no big fan of Republicans, but at least they seem to have the decency to withdraw when they are caught being similarly undignified.
Like Mark Sanford? Please stop being ridiculous.
Dude. It's Pepsi and Coke. Don't act as if there are REAL differences between the scum of the political class. It's getting way old and most here know better.
Correct, the way these snakes choose their party is based upon what district they want to run in, and which party apparatus will give them more money.
Do people think this guy wouldn't stand up and espouse to believe in every plank of the Republican party if he thought it would benefit him politically?
You must be mistaken. Obama's wholesale change of personel and policy in re: the fed, treasury and other financial regulatory bodies proves that there is a difference!
excellent comparison. I find it strange these days how people can fanatically side with one side and attack the other. If you look at 'change' when you are cooled down, there is no difference
"I’m no big fan of Republicans, but at least they seem to have the decency to withdraw when they are caught being similarly undignified."
I look on all of them with contempt as well, until they prove otherwise...but as you say pubs (mostly) own up to it instead of compounding it with lie upon lie.
This friggin bozo said he was hacked right from the get-go, leaving himself open to (of course) ummm, you're a Congressman, Weiner, you better get the FBI involved here dude.
Whoops...well, maybe I wasn't hacked.
Worst of all, if it could get any worse...he sits on the E Commerce Committee. Perfect!
The lunatics are running the asylum.
Republicans have to fall on their swords because they stand for [pretend to] staunch conservative, apple pie in your grandmothers house values.
Democrats don't have to fall on their sword because they publicy support every type of debauchery known to man in the name of diversity and tolerance.
That being said, (lest I get preached at for "not being able to move past party politics" I still have more respect for the Democrats, because at least we know where we stand with them.
The Democrat dresses up in a diaper and asks you to take a shit on his chest. The Republican bitches about social decline and then tries to fuck you in a men's room while you take a shit.
The sexual escapades are BY FAR the least of their crimes or indiscretions made against the American people.. (R) or (D).. That being said.. I kind of agree with you.
Good points as usual Colonel.
Shame? Shame did you say? That word was erased from the English language by the morally-deficient intellectual elite running America.
in the move '1941' starring John Belushi there was a guy on top of the ferris wheel that looked amazingly like this wiener weiner.
It would have been so much better had he just admitted it right away. So stupid...
But I thought he handled today's press release quite well.
He's also a video music star:
Man, the passion!
The gentleman from New York will observe regular order and put his cock down!
I am Chumbawamba.
WTF crumba. Where you been, in jail?
... or maybe out sucking dick for 1 oz. silver bars.
If you are going to do this kind of thing, make it funny. The only person I see here sucking is Grainium.
ummm... he was cornered by the media and his constituents, who he mercilessly attacked for the past two weeks.
Hey, that is what I said.
My zerohedge account was hacked just as I was about to say something really clever. I will not discuss this any further, and it is time for me to go back to work for the american people.
Women involved with these political types online must be sitting back, laughing, waiting for the inevitable crash of the guy just hoping to get a book deal out of the whole thing while another pubescent Congressman bites the dust.
Of course, it is always possible he was tweeting a guy or a 400 pound women with hairy everything who stole her neighbors jpegs.
This is not political suicide for him, he is a democrat after all. Had he been a Republican the situation would be completely different for him.
Didn't the Republican leadership force Chris Lee to resign after the Craigslist topless pictures come out?
John Ensign just switched to (D) in an attempt to keep his seat . . .
So true, but affair between opposite sexes are so against their current banners that it may even worse than suicide. Come on it could even end up with a baby, the traitor!
Don't worry, I'm sure Wiener believes in a slut mistress's right to choose.
Wasn't the other guy earlier this year a republican?
I dunno about that. Married GOP Senator David Vitter is still going strong. And he actually boned a hooker.
By saying "boned"..., what, exactly, did you mean?
The hooker to me is not a big deal but the diapers are just too fucked up to ignore.
And I recall the moralist Republican Senator Larry Craig who got busted cruising for gay sex in public toilets and then refused to resign.
Had he been a Republican, he'd have been cruising for gay sex in public bathrooms.
....exactly. Bubba slipped his neck out of the noose and he really was having sex with that girl.
No it isn't. He's a Democrat, he'll slide.
I think I better change my avatar.
No! don't do it! .... life would not be the same ...
I heard Walmart has a deal on gray jockey shorts.
He should be re-elected as he is wearing and amerikan flag lapel pin.
His next opponent should wear a shiny penis pin on their lapel instead so they always remember who the weener is on the other side of the race.
Wow, RP. Have you ever considered a career as a politacal advisor? If you land on a House or Senate staff you can get all that legal insider trading done. I'm envious.
Weiner by name, Weiner by nature
I think you meant, "Weiner by name, wiener by nature."
Weener by nature.
Was charlie sheen trying to convey weiner, verse winning?
Maybe he just thought he had a winning weener, and wanted to be cute and share it to the world.
This is bullish for Oscar Meyer
Social media fool - twitter and Facebook mistakes big time. Time to go back to paper and pen.
Flash paper and invisible ink maybe.
Can't wait until he busts out the line about "We have too many important issues facing the nation to discuss this" when he was the one dicking around and tweeting his cock to staffers.
What a douchebag...
...lol you stole the words right out of my head.
We have seen this play out so many times before, politicians should know when they get caught just admit it. It is the attempted cover-up that kills them.
He should have given a Jesse Ventura answer, yeah, I go to brothels, so what.
What we don't know is how many successfully cover these things up. Without that, we don't really know the best strategy. We should get John Edwards to chime in on this one.
Please, this guy is an amateur hour compared a pro like Mr. Edwards. As I recall didn't he cheat on his wife while she had terminal cancer and had a love child? Can't make that shit up. Combine that with the famous "I can hear the fetus crying" speeches in court, and Satan is green with envy.
Weiner admits to pecker picture. Wife admits now everyone can see why I'm leaving him.
Will the wife be made whole now. A whole lot of compensation that is? Why marry a whining weiner with a wronged woggle in the first place and why whinge now as he trys to wrangle out of his wrinkled and wretched wrongdoing.
I love alliteration.
Representative Weiner Twittering his weiner; symbolic of a majority of our leaders in Washington and Wall Street.
This episode of the West Wing kicks ass.
argh, he's back.
Cheeky, really, are ya back? Welcome home
it is my favorite one since the extended nuclear meltdown one that was playing for a while.
Thankyou, I'll be here all week. Try the soylent green.
Canaduh, ftw !
Canaduh, America's Cap
Well played, sir. You win the round.
Is this more like bread or a circus?
It's actually circus bread
What rools down stairs, rolls over in pairs, rolls over your neighbor's dog.
It's great for a snack, it fits on your back...IT'S CIRCUS BREAD FOR ALL.
More circus bread for me, please!
My first prototype line of snacks was going to be Pope Chips. You know, Eucharist on the go. You can take them to the game or eat them on the coach, but at the end of the day you have the body of Christ with you.
Now that Circus-Bread has popped into my mind, I think I am going to have to retool the production line to make Circus Bread instead. First flavor will be QE Explosion. Brought to you by SNAPSnacks.
Right now, it is all about the weener bread.
Isn't that, a hot dog bun?
If I EVER see any of that in the grocery store, I shall surely die from laughter! (And virtually NO one will know why!) :>D
Like they say, the American Political System is one huge septic tank...all the big chuncks float right to the top.
Political morals and self-respect went out the window back when Bubba was smoking them Lewinski Stogies and claimed that because he busted his nut on her and not in her that everything is cool.
The President of the United States was gettin' hummers in the oval office and is still treated like a rock star to this day by media and his followers. unbelievable.
More blow jobs, good
Less wars and hatred, priceless
The puritanical bunch, hypocrites
The Kennedy brothers were essentially running a brothel in DC. God help any female pages/aides who got pregnant. They got a ride in Teddy's Oldsmobile.
What a pathetic jackass. That's what happens when you think you're invincible. Let's see him wiggle out of this one.
when will a chamber maid come out of the woodwork?
Oscar Meyer!! Fire up the Barbie!
I think it's pronounced 'whiner' not 'wiener'. Or at least that's how it would be in German. Not sure how you say it in Fuckwad.
You said it all perfectly! Mark Sanford protoge?
If more politicians spent their time seducing young women they would spend less time starting unecessary wars.
Gaddafi says he wants to kill his own people, we say the hell with that, we want to kill your people and we are proceeding to do so with the arrongance that we can somehow ferret out the good ones from the bad ones from 30,000 feet.
Please, Washington DC, proceed to play with your penises, watch porn, get laid, role play fantasy, just stop killing people everywhere.
Hey, bwarney frank wants to play with your weener, not his own. Please get it straight, up and hard.
While I'm no fan of Moammar, there's no way he "says he wants to kill his own people."
I'm sorry, but we are going to have to revoke your poetic license for engaging in partisan demagoguery. Please see the bailiff on your way out.
Dont you recall his "there will be no mercy" comment? This little priceless snip-it is what Obombastic relied on in sending in the troops.
Now this is truly a truth stranger than fiction. Would any book editor ever let an author name a character "Weiner" in a story with a plot line like this pathetic reality unfolding before our very eyes? No way.
Sure ... because sex images and talk is nowhere to be found online... especially on social media!
Nobody does it .... nope ... nobody!
This could seriously affect the self image of weasels as he resembles them. Once again, humans will refer to his "weasel" like characteristics. I think the only way to protect the weasels as a species is to eliminate all politicians.
OMG! The Banzai7 treatment here will be scandalous.
<Cdad already averting eyes>
Isn't this guy Jon Stewart's friend? Yet another reason to take him seriously.
Jon's going to be pretty upset about this, I think. You could tell he was already feeling uncertain about the whole situation, given they are old friends.
So let me get this straight. At first, he was lying by telling us he was telling the truth and denying. Now he's telling the truth about telling us he was lying about his denial. Right?
I can explain this behavior in one word: politician.
Or a televangelist: "Forgive me, i have sinned" lol
At least he is not blaming it on the weather. But it probably is transitory.
I blame the Birth/Death adjustment.
Could you zoom out on your avatar by 2 or 3 pixels? Mucho appreciado, compadre!
special election bitches!!
Where's your Chinese accent when you need it?
lol. I love what you did there!
Thumbs up. Well played, sir.
Speciao Erection Bitchez..
how dat? betta?
Surely you meant "special erection", no?
Is there a Webby for "best non-fiction headline"?
I'd like to propose:
"Weepy Weiner stands tall against accusers"
If he had just confessed, the story would have been over. He was wearing underpants. The girl was of legal age. He wasn't engaged in a pattern of harrassing behaviour. In other news: stop taking and publicly displaying embarrasing pictures.
True. The coverup is worse than crime. FBI could have gotten involved if he was truly hacked. Wasted resources.
The questions of age of the people was sickening. Just stand down. Country needs real leaders.
Anyone watch the episode of Lie to Me where they showed the contrite politician face?
You know the Clinton/Spitzer one with puffed out cheeks and the thousand yard stare.
Did Weiner pull that face?
Goddamn he went with the Blue tie, the regretful one.
Lie to me s1 has to be the most insightful body language show on tv.
How's those American Idol episodes these days?
Actually I think Bang Bus Bitches on Hustler Channel has more insightful body langauge.
I don't worry that I can't keep up with all of these politicians' sleazy habits, because I am certain that the friends of their spouses, parents, and children do.
Ugly motherfucker..who the fuck do these politicians think they are. Fire this dumbass
What happened to Mark Sanford in South Carolina ?
What were Mark Sanfords last words to his secretary before he left for Buenos Aires ?
"Should anybody ask, I'm on the Appalachian trail."
Currently John Edwards is also in court for his extra-marital love-affair with subsequent bun-in-the-oven and associated misapproprisation of campaign funds.
Just saw that Weiner talked to Pelosi about the scandal briefly before coming out with the confession-- looks like she gets all the pertinent insider info before the rest of us.
He got permission to keep his job. Pelosi actually demanded she see his penis so she could determine how big a problem this could be........
sex sex sex... there I did it.. and i take responsability... hand over the money
Wait a minute .... money for sex?!?
Dammit. Another trade where I'm on the wrong side.
Peter King, my Congressman from Long Island, always fought with him. King must be laughing his ass off right now!
so he admits he is a liar and a sexual deviant while crying on national tv.... tell me how he stays a congressman?
that's how he keeps his job.
Correct ... never ran on 'family values'.
Resumee enhancer for a Democrat. He'll win in a landslide.
Oh, come on.
His private life is none of our business.
He had no problem booking himself on talk shows to lie about his private life.
Weiner smeared Andrew Breitbart saying that they hacked his Twitter account and Weiner KNEW that was a lie.
it strikes me as slightly hilarious that the people who belive the ecosystem is all connected, and in the butterfly effect, and so forth,,,, then say one's character is not relevant in job performance. Private life is connected with the rest of life. Intimately. Weiner's display of character defect of course reveals how he handles much more important political matters: bribes, PAC contributions, negotiations. His moral code is 'do what you can get away with. When caught, accuse. When cornered, confess and cry." Character IS connected to job performance. Character does count.
There's an old fable about a scorpion trying to cross a river. An otter gives him a ride on his back. When they get to the other side, the scorpion stings the otter. Outraged, the otter reminds him he just helped him.
"What do you expect? I'm a scorpion."
Yeah!... It is not like he is a school teacher or someone in a position of responsibility...
You mean like a Priest or sumpthin'?
Dang...your reading my mind...I was thinking Jimmy Swaggert...Jim Jones...Jim Baker...
Weiner probe ends badly for this douche bag. WTF, somehow I don't think sending pictures of his wang to 6 women over three years is a "mistake". Time for AW to nut up and go "Kobe" and buy the lady a big diamond ring to smooth over the situation. Just another example of the septic tank that is DC.
I dont know why, but I get the impression that weiner probe would be painfull.
