Strip Poker: "PatriotUSA76" Is Irrelevant

I was asked about this in an email. By like six people. Since I've by now fully expressed my thinking across six different emails, might as well synthesize them and publish them for everyone else.

There's a lot of legitimate speculation about PatriotUSA76.

And then there is some paranoia.

I didn't want to deal with this because it doesn't matter to the central story, but since everyone's talking about it, here's me talking about it.

I have heard a lot of possibilities floated about who PatriotUSA76 really is.

Here is a sampling of the possibilities:

1. PatrioutUSA76 is precisely what he appears to be: A determined conservative partisan who hated Weiner and followed him on Twitter because he 1, hated him, and 2, noticed that Weiner seemed to be following a lot of young, cute girls, and found this suspicious. As Film Ladd (perhaps unfairly, perhaps fairly) terms it, a bit of a "cyberstalker." And yet, only that -- a boring axe to grind combined with time to waste.

2. Jilted ex-girlfriend who has a penis picture from prior relationship and hacked the account. Note carefully: This is the only possibility that really implicates a "hacker" claim or comes close to exonerating Weiner. Oddly enough, this just happens to be the one his PR team is trying to float out there for naive liberals in the press to bite into. Problem: There is absolutely no reason to suspect this. Further, as a commenter points out, if she had shady dirt to peddle on Weiner, why not just go to the press and squeal? Why all the masque and mystery?

3. This isn't something anyone has mentioned, except me, but: if 2 is in play, then we must also add "Boyfriend of a girl who was inappropriately DM'd by Weiner, or a boyfriend of a girl Weiner stole away or slept with," who has been looking for vengeance ever since. In this scenario, PatriotUSA76 hates Weiner for personal reasons, but is disguising his identity as an angry boyfriend by hiding under a flag of partisan animus.

4. A Republican online campaign tracker -- I didn't know they had these, but it make sense -- who has been paid to stalk Weiner's account, looking for anything compromising. Problem with this one: A professional tracker wouldn't make a lot of noise, I don't think, and get all emotionally invested.

5. A Democrat online campaign tracker, who is placed by one of Weiner's numerous potential Mayoral rivals for 2013, looking for a way to take Weiner out of the running. Problem: Same as with 4.

6. And I honestly just had this floated to me: PatriotUSA76 is the "catcher" whereas Ginger Lee is the "pitcher" in a "honeypot" sting situation; Ginger Lee is a set-up to attract the attention of Weiner, and then PatriotUSA76 catches his errant post and publicizes it. Problem here: it's preposterous, Ginger Lee is a real person with a real life, and further, this whole idea relies on knowing that Weiner would send an errant Tweet, which is too silly to be credited. But then, who knows, maybe he was #Hacked! in this honey-pot operation. But if you're going to just #Fabricate! evidence anyway I don't see the point of having a sleeper agent in the stripper business.

Now, here are the possibilities. Maybe there are more. Maybe, who knows, PatriotUSA76 is a boyhood friend of Anthony Weiner's, and one day they were playing with a loaded gun they didn't know was loaded, and Antony Weiner accidentally shot and killed PatriotUSA76's little brother, and they buried the body and claimed he ran away, but PatriotUSA76 has been racked by guilt and anger ever since, and has waited 30 years to pounce.

Now, if that's silly, it's silly, but explain to me why that one is any less supported than any of the other ones. I mean, if we're just making crap up, why not make it a real mystery, with a dead child's skeleton buried somewhere under the floor of an abandoned Queens shirt-factory?

The important point in all of this is only a hack gets Weiner off the hook. Only a hack. Only in scenarios 2, maybe 3, and I don't know, outlandish scenario 6 is a hack likely or possible. I suppose it's possible in all of them, even 1.

So we're all interested in PatriotUSA76 for only one real reason: Did he do a hack?

That's the only real way that PatriotUSA76 becomes relevant as regards Weiner's guilt. If PatriotUSA76 did not just monitor and stalk Weiner's account, but actually hacked it, then PatriotUSA76 is very relevant.

If he didn't hack it, he's irrelevant. Maybe there's an interesting story here about a campaign tracker, and I'd like to read that story, sure, but that story is irrelevant to Weiner's guilt.

A tracker doesn't get him off.

Only a hacker gets him off.

So: Was there a hack? Let's begin with the question we're trying to answer. Because we actually can answer it.

I don't see how you get around the fact that if Weiner doesn't call the cops, that means he knows there's no hacker.

This is like Poker. You know your opponent's cards through his behavior.

You can't see his cards, but he can see his cards, and you can see the bets he's placing and his demeanor.

From his behavior and bets, one card Anthony Weiner is NOT holding is the "Hacker" card.

Right?

If he held the Ace of Hack, or the King of Hack, or even the Deuce of Hack, he'd play it and call the FBI.

And if that's the case -- and I think I know this as "fact," at least a close to a "fact" as you can have by inference -- then that rules out the Jilted XGF/Vengeance-Seeking Boyfriend of DM'd Girl "hack" scenarios, and we're left with the rest, one of which is boring (he is who he says he is), one of which is preposterous ("honeytrap"), and two of which are "interesting" and indicate partisan sleaziness but do nothing to suggest Weiner didn't do exactly what he did.

So: All this paranoia to answer a question -- was there a hack? -- which was answered within 48 hours when Anthony Weiner refused to call the FBI to report his #Hacked! violation.

He does not have the Hack card, of any rank. No Ace of Hack, no King of Hack, no Jack of Hack.

He does not have this card.

PatriotUSA76 may turn out to be interesting. He will likely remain quite boring.

But he will not turn out to be the Mystery Hacker, because Anthony Weiner has told you, as clearly and as loudly and as repeatedly as possible, that there is no Mystery Hacker.

Headline: WEINER PULLS OUT. Out of the Wisconsin hate rally he was supposed to attend. Mostly predicted.

So, he can't even go to red-meat true-blue liberal rallies now.

Thanks to someguy.

9 Ace since you do twitter perhaps you can answer the question. If you want to include another user in your tweets like with the @repweiner stuff, with your software you do this from does that require you to type out @repweiner everytime or once you hit @r- does a list popup allowing you to just fill in if you want. I mean that's really a question for everyone using twitter, since I know I've seen you accidentally misspell who you were @-ing. But are there add-ons and such that let you do this? If it is that might lend some plausibility to the Gingerlee/ComelyCoed mixup.
Afterall the Pornstar did tweet about her Anthony Weiner love after midnight because of her slow work night.

Posted by: buzzion at June 03, 2011 04:54 PM (oVQFe)

10 Bottom line:
Either 1) someone else posted the pic on Weenie's account, so Weenie needs to find out who it was and go after them, or 2) Weenie did it himself. The Patriot question could be answered easily if Weenie would get the right people involved, but he won't since HE SENT THE PIC.
Therefore, Patriot is irrelevant. He might be a creepy stalker guy, he might be an angelic altar boy, he might be a chick, he could be one of those Scandi birds pecking at a keyboard and retweeted because there were nice big chunks of bird food on the R and T keys. Who cares?

And again and yet again and again:

Everything is irrelevant when held up to Weiner's behavior post-dicpic. He has convicted himself.

16 I would just LOVE to be a fly on the wall when this worm has to explain exactlywhy he is DM'ing Comely Co-ed, but especially the PRON STAR. Being just newly-wed I'm sure one of her questions is :
'Am I not pretty enough for you? A PRON STAR Anthony?????'
That is why he cancelled his Dem meeting this weekend. He has a whole lotta 'splainin to do.

Posted by: Schwalbe : The © at June 03, 2011 04:57 PM (UU0OF)

17 I don't follow your logic here. Weiner could be refusing to pursue an investigation because he doesn't want the FBI snooping around his private life. Maybe there are pictures out there or other sexual conduct he doesn't want to talk about under oath.

24 What about it IS a hack, but from some jilted ex-girlfriend, ex-boyfriend of a(n ex-) girlfriend, or ex-boyfriend of Anthony (maybe he's bisexual, or gay?!)? And Anthony wants at all costs to avoid the (ex)-affair being publicized?

Posted by: rjm319 at June 03, 2011 05:00 PM (vZ45L)

25 PS the conversation above would be enough for me to call the FBI about 2 seconds after the #hack happened just to calm her down. Hence, no hacker, just a cheater.

28 Wow, "Jack Of All Parades." Another all-time Costello classic, but I didn't see how it could be shoehorned into Weinergate. Way to go.

And by the way, Ace, I'm surprised you omitted the possibility I consider plausible: a fusion of #1 and #2 (minus the hacker part): angry obsessive creepo ex-girlfriend who cyberstalked him and caught him with his pants down, so to speak.

That's why I don't think Stranahan's *completely* out to lunch here...I think he might be right in his theory that PatriotUSA76 is actually a woman.

But, as you said: it's a shiny object meant to distract us. For the DailyKos, however, it's the Only Story That Matters!

30 Ace, you're crazy to be paying attention to an elected U.S. Government Official who was caught sending out obscene pictures to college girls and who then claimed that his entire computer system was hacked by persons or foreign powers unknown yet refuses to let the Capitol Police or FBI investigate the hacking (despite clear House rules that such an investigation is required).


Mark my words, no one else cares about this nothingness of a story, and you'll ruin your reputation if you continue to write about it.

32 Ace,

I think by this point, the only ones who believe that Weiner didn't post the dick-pic himself are those who NEED to believe.

Anyone claiming idiotic stories about external political partisans doing this to Weiner either doesn't know the facts of this incident, is lying to cover for Weiner, or lying to themselves.

We're getting back to the "you can't use logic to convince someone out of a position they didn't enter through logic" territory.

I would just LOVE to be a fly on the wall when this worm has to explain
exactlywhy he is DM'ing Comely Co-ed, but especially the PRON STAR.

He probably didn't deliberately tweet the Comely Coed. He selected the Gs in his Followers list and sent to Genette instead of Ginger.

So it's a sort of good news/bad news story for him. The good news is, we can now admit he never targeted a 21-year-old hottie with his dicpic. The bad news is . . .

Posted by: sifty at June 03, 2011 05:04 PM (2dbd9)

38 Agree w/Ace. One week in and there's no official LE investigation.
Incomprehensible if there truly was a hacker.
This eliminates all the wild-assed, contrived, contorted theories and we are left with the simple explanation. To wit: the hounds didn't bark because there was no intruder.

Posted by: Count de Monet at June 03, 2011 05:04 PM (XBM1t)

39 I'm w/ #17, if Weiner was sending dic-pics to women, had an affair, etc., and the ex or ex's boyfriend hacked him, that would still explain why he doesn't want law enforcement involved.

I was thinking the same thing. If this is what "taking a few days off" is then imagine a full blown vacation. 30-40 posts a day I guess.Anyway, PatriotUSA76 is irrelevant. It's Weiner's dick, he sent the picture. Don't let him off ace.

Posted by: Hedgehog at June 03, 2011 05:04 PM (Rn2kl)

41 There is no hacker card.

The real issue, is whether there is a "prank" card.

Real...or fabricated. That's the only card left to play.

Weiner KNOWS whether he actually sent the photo or did not. That's a given.

IF, he knows he did...game over, thanks for playing...everything else is a subterfuge.

IF he knows he did not, he then knows SOMEBODY else did. If somebody else is a "hacker", past behavior patterns suggest the Angry Inchworm would explode into a frothing rage. So, because he is not...he is flailing around trying to say "move on, nothing to see here...", it means he is covering for SOMEBODY.

THAT...is our starting point. We have reached the point that we now know that he is involved in a cover up...either way.

How much he is covering up, how hard he is trying to erase his tracks, why he is covering up...all left to be discovered. But the starting point has moved. It's all about the cover up now.

I don't follow your logic here. Weiner could be refusing to pursue an
investigation because he doesn't want the FBI snooping around his
private life.
=======

He's a sitting US Congressman, and he should enjoy basic professionalism from the FBI.

Getting to the bottom of this would take less than a day, and wouldn't be intrustive at all. All the Feds would have to do is forensically look at Weiner's computer, his phone, and the logs from the Twitter and Yfrog accounts.

That would be enough to figure out where the offending images and posts truly came from.

Unless Weiner *ALSO* has reams of kiddie-porn on his computer he really shouldn't have anything to worry about here.

46 May I point out the the Comely Co-ed said in her NY Post article that she received her one and only copy of the yfrog link to Weiner's wiener from someone she said had sent her lots of previous questions via Twitter, which is why she thought it was a prank at first?
That supports theory #1: I presume that PatriotUSA76 was on Weiner's case for using Twitter to communicate with nubile young women, and had previously contacted the Comely Co-ed to ask what the nature of her relationship with Weiner was.

Posted by: stuiec at June 03, 2011 05:06 PM (Di3Im)

47 I'm surprised Weiner's people didn't play the easiest card they had.

Something like, "An intern, authorized to monitor Rep Weiner's Twitter account, logged into the Twitter account whilst at a rowdy party. A unknown person, believing the account to be that of the intern, took a picture and tweeted it at random to the coed. The intern immediately called the Representative to tell him that the account was 'hacked.' After questioning the intern, Rep. Weiner's staff learned that in fact it was a prank played by the unknown person, taking advantage of the un-attentive intern. The intern has been let go, the Twitter and other social networking accounts have been restricted, and, not wishing to embarrass the intern or the intern's family, no further action will be needed."

51 I thought Weiner was gay, so maybe it's an ex-boyfriend -- and all the young females are an elaborate ruse.

Of course, Occam's razor says most likely it's something simple and straightforward -- like a time-travelling space-Nazi trying to undermine Weiner and derail his inevitable Presidential run in 2020, when Weiner would finally bring permanent peace to the Middle East and true security to Israel and the Palestinians.

So, try and muddle the waters all you want with the hoax and hacking theories -- but I'm sticking with space-Nazi.

74 #47 I'm surprised Weiner's people didn't play the easiest card they had [intern takes the fall]
=====

That problematic on many levels, but the biggest problem is that he'd have to find some intern stupid enough to take the fall for this, yet a good enough liar to pull it off convincingly.

Not so easy.

It would be trivially easy for any interrogator with half a brain to show that said fall-guy was lying about previously "tweeting" for Weiner, etc.

The best course of action would probably have been for Weiner to just admit right up front that he did it, take his licks from his wife, and move on. Story would have been dead within a day or two. Now, he's going to end up taking the same licks from his wife, only he's slowly destroying himself with this idiotic cherade, too.

May I point out the the Comely Co-ed said in her NY Post article that she received her one and only copy of the yfrog link to Weiner's wiener from someone she said had sent her lots of previous questions via Twitter, which is why she thought it was a prank at first?
That supports theory #1: I presume that PatriotUSA76 was on Weiner's case for using Twitter to communicate with nubile young women, and had previously contacted the Comely Co-ed to ask what the nature of her relationship with Weiner was.
Posted by: stuiec at June 03, 2011 05:06 PM (Di3Im)
That's entirely possible. She could have been checking her twitter and PatriotUSA got the retweet to her out just as Weiner was deleting the original one. So when she checked the original dicpic tweet would have been disappeared already.

84 Sorry, Ace but there being a hacker doesn't get Wiener off the hook.

Premise #1 - If Wiener genuinely never sent pictures of Mr Happy out onto the internet, then he would have no qualms about filing a police report because he would know he'd be found blameless.

Premise #2 (and this is your statement) " I don't see how you get around the fact that if Wiener doesn't call the cops, that means he knows there's no hacker.

Not necessarily true! What if Wiener knows (or suspects he knows) who the hacker is and also knows the motive for his getting hacked? Angry boyfriend of the recipient of a prior lewd tweet; pissed off ex girlfriend, etc., etc. A case can be made for the proposition Wiener knows who the hacker is but is afraid revealing his/her identity will lead to deeper shit.

Premise# 3. The guy is a complete dickhead; he sent that tweet (probably to the co-ed by mistake instead of to his porn star follower), he's now trying to 'walk back the dog', and can't call the cops because he knows no hack has taken place.

I'll take 'door #3', thank you. (Occam's razor all that good stuff.)

89 No #42, if the FBI arrested the hacker and it was an ex or ex's boyfriend, it would come out that Weiner had a mistress or was sending dic-pics to women or whatever the hell was going on. And I'm not defending Weiner, if this theory or some theory like it is correct, he's not guilty of sending the dic pic to the comely coed, but he's still guilty of similar tawdry behavior.

102 Also,

Don't forget that the FIRST (panic) response out of Weiner on this was that he was "hacked. . .by Moriarty".

Why would he say he was "hacked" if he knew that one of his interns was (with his permission) impersonating him with his personal media accounts?

If said intern did such a thing WITHOUT his permission, said intern would rightfully deserve to be instantly fired, and this would have happened first thing Monday morning, if not sooner.

So unless he could have found a willing and able fall guy from his staff FAST, that story wouldn't really have held water either.

The other part of the Ginger Lee theory that makes me more comfortable with the whole story is that Comely Coed insisted there was no inappropriate communication between her and Weiner. I was thinking, wtf? This girl had full credibility with me except for that (yes and her being a liberal, but let's save that for another day another post).

This was especially bothersome to me because someone here last night enlightened a few of us on how sexting and dicpicking gets started.

Another hypothetical without evidence.

This one is also eliminated by Occam's razor. Its too convoluted, and doesn't explain the facts.

Hacking into someone's private Twitter account still isn't trivial.

How does a third party out for revenge get access to Weiner's TWO separate private media account passwords? How does that even happen?

Assuming that this was motivated by revenge, is THAT the sort of revenge you'd take? Hell no. Again, getting his passwords to begin with couldn't have been easy. If you were looking for revenge, and had access to Weiner's passwords, then you'd ALSO have access to ALL his private conversations.

Wouldn't exploiting all THAT information be a LOT more valuable to you than throwing away your password access with some stupid "dick pic" sting?

ace, you had another of these eey-ore moments about 48 hours ago. I don't hold it against you considering you're probably going on no sleep and a few hours of silence from the MBM.

But they're reading you, they're reading the blogs, they're going to pick up the Ginger Lee angle. (So are his legal team, his private security firm, and Huma's lawyers.) The MBM have smelled blood, and according to Breitbart, those CNN folks are some bitter PUMAs who are mad on Huma's account.

In other words, this is about to get much, much worse for Weiner. Monday does not look good for him.

Also, if you were out for revenge, how could you be so sure that Weiner wouldn't retaliate? He *IS* a sitting US Congressman, its not like he doesn't have power or friends.

If you had something on him so damaging that he wouldn't be able to retaliate, then why would you even bother seeking revenge via some childish take "dick pic" sting?

Maybe, who knows, PatriotUSA76 is a boyhood friend of Anthony Weiner's, and one day they were playing with a loaded gun they didn't know was loaded, and Antony Weiner accidentally shot and killed PatriotUSA76's little brother, and they buried the body and claimed he ran away, but PatriotUSA76 has been racked by guilt and anger ever since, and has waited 30 years to pounce.>>>>>>>>

Great. PatriotUSA76 is really Phil Collins? Sheesh....

Yeah, I guess so, but it seems like they could have amputated his leg with minimal effort, and he could have continued serving away from the front lines.

I just can't wrap my head around the idea that Clinton himself, or someone who lived through the Lewinsky scandal, didn't speak with Weiner directly in the first 24 or 48 hours, and said: "This is what you're gonna do, fucko."

His behavior since only makes sense to me if he told those folks he was absolutely, positively, 100% squeaky clean and innocent. But then again, maybe I'm giving the Democratic machine too much credit.

So if a jilted former ex-GF or current jealous wife had hacked his account, perhaps Weiner still wouldn't want an investigation. They could BOTH be guilty.

If his wife weren't happy with his philandering behavior then why didn't she just dump him? Though I bet Huma has had some interesting conversations with Hilary about philandering husbands.

Also, remember, it was Weiner who claimed he was hacked.

Either he knows who did this, or he doesn't. If he doesn't, why doesn't he want an investigation to find out? That doesn't make sense.

If he DOES know who did it, then why did he hide behind lawyers, and refuse to answer basic questions about it?

Sending lewd photos to underage girls is, if you'll pardon the expression, a distraction. No evidence of that, and it's not the case.

Kos refused to take down personal info of girls who were lured into a very shady sting operation by patriotusa76 and cohorts. Another distraction.

189 Uh oh! PatriotUSA76 is gone. First let me say that this is still reasonable. Perhaps, like GennetteC, he just didn't want the attention. If everybody was asking questions about my identity, family, and livelihood, I might delete my twitter account too. However, given that the account was created in April and was purely set up, it appears, to attack Weiner from the beginning, it looks suspicious. I would actually suspect it is a left-winger, given the fact that the "conservativeness" is almost overdone: "patriot", "USA", Reagan picture, etc. I would suspect that it is someone close to or involved with Weiner: wife; jilted ex-GF, lover, or fan; mayoral opponent; staffer, etc. They knew Weiner was "skeazy", as the recent article points out, and they wanted to take him down. So they hacked the account or even just photoshopped the tweet into their screencap at an opportune time (when Gennette asked what her "boyfriend" was up to after seeing the Seattle tag, which just barely could be coincidental if he was referencing west coast time, and especially so if PatriotUSA picked GennetteC specifically because of the Seattle tag. Although the follow by Weiner is still suspicious, but perhaps part of the general "skeaziness".) Then Weiner is stuck - he's been hacked, but throwing open the doors and inviting in a full investigation would reveal other embarassing, but maybe not career-killing pics, tweets, etc. Mystery solved?

199 The truth of the matter is that there's no real great mystery here. Every single Democrat and Independent United States Congressman is being followed on every social media site they participate in by people who are just waiting for them to fatfinger something like this.
It's fairly banal opposition research. These are public channels they're posting to. We're also following them with cameras when they step into the public space because you have no expectation of privacy when you go out in public. We'll beasking inopportune questions hoping they'll punch us or something (and that video will be caught by the backup cameraman and uploaded to YouTube). Because punching people is a crime. Don't fucking get caught doing it or your career is over with.
This is politics folks and there is nothing unfair about it. If Anthony Weiner is sending girls cock shots on Twitter and he fat-fingers a DM ... that shit is going to go public and it is going to be used against him because it should be.
Heshouldn't be using his fucking taxpayer funded equipment to conduct trim hunts. It's also good for ratings. When those two things elements combine themselves, look the fuck out.
Democrats can spend decades searching for the second gunman all they want ... truth is we have many, many gunmen and we're all pointing our lenses towards you Democrats.
You're not going to enjoy your time in public office.
You're not going to have any fun.
We're going to make your life a fucking misery.

211 Sold post, Ace.

But I was thinking it had to be that one guy from Weiner's platoon back in Nam. Weiner used his field promotion to run him into the ground whenever he could. Usually shit duties are doled out more-or-less an equal basis as punishments. Everybody gets their turn. But this guy? Weiner had him cleaning the latrines with his toothbrush the whole tour. Almost a year. I think the guy lost it. Listen, you can get pretty klinky out there in the shit even without the extra duty. But this guy? About halfway through the tour, this guy saves Weiner's life. It was an ambush about a hundred clicks north of Binh Phuoc. He spots this sniper in the bush with a bead on Weiner. He lays down fire, pushes Weiner out of the way. The bullet put a crease in his helmet. So he's thinking... He's thinking he just bought himself out of latrine duty, that Weiner owed him one. Well. It didn't happen. Weiner didn't believe there was a sniper. And this guy spends the rest of the tour with the thousand yard stare, cleaning latrines and mumbling to himself. Yeah, he's the one. He waited all this time. He read books and honed his hacking skill. He waited until the time was right, and he pounced. That's what happened.

212 sifty's story... the guy poisoning his dog. I just don't understand how sifty's dad just didn't end that guy on the spot. I wasn't there, but... still. I know how that would have played out at my house and it would have ended with me gladly going to jail and the neighbor going to the nearest emergency room.

223 If there was a second person in the room with Weiner, she (presumably) could have fat-fingered the tweet. It would be technically true that Weiner hadn't sent the tweet, though still clearly false that he had been hacked.

230 Holy shit.

Just walked in my house and Brian Williams news cast was on. He did this 'week in review' thing and I just couldn't believe my ears.
It slammed Romney for his 'working man jeans' and 'hiding a teleprompter in a hale bail'

Then called Palin 'all about her' tour.

If anyone sees this segment in video, someone here should post it. It was amazing. I know none of us watch the Big 3 nightly news anymore, but you will be stunned to hear what mouth breathers are hearing on a daily basis.

Seriously, if you find the clip PLEASE MAKE IT A POST/THREAD.
Everything you could slam Obama on, they basically twisted it and used it to slam Rs with.

Oh, they also said 'Weiner' matter was private, but because of the viral situation in which we live, it has now been forced into the spotlight.

231 It seems Wolf Blitzer just got an interview with Anthony's Weiner.
Wolf: So tell me is that your picture?.
Weiner: Well the picture is me, but it's an old picture, from back in the day when Anthony and I hung out and did Weiner things. Heck back then we took a lot of pictures.
Wolf: So why all the deception?
Weiner: Well once Anthony got married, we haven't been as "close" as we once were. I'll admit it, I was feeling left out after all the fun times we had in the single days.
Wolf: So the Congressman did not know it was you who sent the tweet?
Weiner: I think Anthony suspected it, but he was trying to cover up for me. The last thing that Anthony Weiner needs is for the media to know that he has a loose Weiner running around out there.
Wolf: So the congressman is innocent?
Weiner: Oh yes, it was totally me. I waited until he went to sleep and started using his blackberry. Of course I'm not as good with twitter, having no thumbs, so I mistakenly sent a message to the whole twitter verse.
Wolf: So there you have it, Anthony Weiner's Weiner was behind the tweet!

232 If 2 or 3 are possibilities, it might explain why he doesn't want them prosecuted. No reason to ruin their lives over a prank, however mean spirited.

This may well be what he reports as having happened. But because he's such a big hearted guy, he won't follow up.

Not that I believe any other explanation than the one that has him DMing a picture of his wang but screwing it up.

233 Been seeing stories about how Weiner is the victim of this crazeeee new digital age of social media. Tweets, hacks, cyber-stuff, it's a wild world where fact and fiction swirl around and it's impossible to tell one from the other.

Permit me to retort.

The real problem is whipping your dick out. If you don't do that, no media, new or old, can get at it.

For example, let's look at an old-fangled media like a rotary telephone. If you whip out your dick and start talking about it to some random woman you dialed up, you can get in trouble if they track you down. It has nothing to do with the wizardry of transporting audio signals over long distances. Those would be involved even if you just called your mom up to say hi. It has everything to do with whipping your dick out.

Let's look at something even older like a light bulb. If you go at side and whip it out in front of a woman standing under a street lamp, it's trouble for you. But again, it's not the fault of the magical light waves. If you didn't whip it out, they'd shine on something else and you'd be okay.

239 Here's the problem: Not only are we assuming a pretty ridiculous / convenient motive and backstory, but we are ALSO assuming, this random person that just happens to fit the ridiculously convenient story ALSO happens to be a rather accomplished hacker that just happened to be able to hack into someone's Twitter account.

Which is.... complete and utter BULLSHIT. Hacking someone's Twitter account is not something you just wake up some day and do. Shit, you don't even wake up one day, go through a crapload of google searches and figure out HOW to hack a Twitter account. Sorry, you have to be a pretty good hacker, serious computer hacker skillz already established to do such a thing.

I worked for a guy once - a fairly powerful executive - that got a couple inflamatory emails over Yahoo and actually solicited me to find a way to hack a Yahoo account to find out who did it. Definitely weird, but I took it as a challenge. I got NOWHERE.

So, yeah, complete bullshit on the whole "hacker" angle.

244 Ace: "From his behavior and bets, one card Anthony Weiner is NOT holding is the 'Hacker' card."
You know what else Weiner isn't holding? The other pictures in his yfrog account. Didn't he purge them all? Hey, guess what? That's also a tell.

So beyond the "not calling the FBI" to get the alleged hacker/pranker/goofer, he removed what some in the investigative community would call "evidence." Why would a victim remove that? Or why not contact Twitter/yfrog and ask them to lock down the accounts temporarily because something suspect was happening?

Why, it's all just so mind-boggling. And by mind-boggling, I mean freakin' obvious.

Posted by: AnonymousDrivel at June 03, 2011 11:19 PM (1yViP)

245 Ace, what you say is true but his actual position is NOT what he doesn't have in his hand but what he DOES.

To use your metaphor:
Weiner is holding a mess: 2, 4 mixed suited with 5, 7, 8, J, K mixed suited, face up on the table. I.E. = Nothing, nada, zero.

The one thing someone with a hand like this doesn't want to hear when they're trying to run a bluff is; "I'm all in". Cause THEN he'll have to show his cards and once he shows his cards he knows HE'LL LOSE.

He'll lose something he thinks he still has a chance for. Apparently it's more than he already lost (so far, although he could just be someone who can't admit failure because he's insecure) by bluffing with nothing.

It's easy to see how he figures if he admits that he sent the pic his pretty and powerful little world he's built comes crashing down; no mayoral race, maybe no seat, for sure he'll be Humas bitch for the rest of that marriage as far as having any say and all his political 'friends' and groupies will abandon him like he's the Titanic.

Too bad for him that might be in the future anyway.

This is a study in DENIAL OF REALITY. And what political group has a problem with seeing reality?

Starts with a D and ends with an s.

Since things have died down a bit, I'm getting concerned that this Dick will get away with this.
