So, Rep. Anthony Weiner is apparently not going to resign from office despite the fact that he's just proven to the country that he has less common sense than my 13-year-old nephew…
A tearful Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted Monday that he has sent photographs and other sexually suggestive messages to at least a half dozen women he's met online over the last three years, but will not resign.
"I am deeply regretting what I have done and I am not resigning," the New York Democrat told reporters in an extraordinary press conference in Manhattan on Monday afternoon. "I am deeply sorry for the pain this has caused Huma, my wife, and my family."
Weiner said that he sent the photo that was accidentally posted on Twitter at the end of May "as part of a joke to a woman in Seattle" and decided to say he had been hacked if he realized the photo had been made public. Sticking to the hacking story was "a hugely regrettable mistake," he said, and he is "so sorry" to have "disrupted" the Seattle woman’s life.
If Anthony Weiner really wants us to know he's sorry, he should send us an apologetic picture of his penis.
