He sent pornographic pictures of himself, via cell phone, which may or may not be illegal. I guess depending on whether the parties who received the photos were aware of the content prior to receiving them and if they were adults. I know I am so tired of politicians engaging is these derelict acts and then lying about doing so...then coming on TV to cry(FAKE) and ask their families and constituents to understand and forgive them. That is BUNK! At what point do we, the VOTING AMERICAN public, say enough is enough? I think as a part of the swearing in ceremony they should be told that anyone who disgraces the electorate, will be removed from office immediately. They will be stripped of all the benefits that come along with the office they hold and they will have to return any salary received while in that office. Their names should also be removed from any ledgers in the branch office where they held a seat. If they are held to the same standards as the rest of the population, they might just behave in a manner that is above reproach. We(America) should reclaim our government and make them work for us, not stand by and allow behavior like this to go unpunished, time after time. Then going on about the day as if nothing happened!
On May 27, 2011, a post linking to a photograph of a man wearing gray boxer briefs was sent via Weiner's Twitter account to a 21-year-old female college student in Seattle who followed his Twitter account. He denied it at first but he later admitted on June 6, 2011 that he had had internet relations with six women over three years.
The worst offence in my eyes was that he lied...natural human nature I suppose, but as a politician I want to trust him and he's made that difficult. It started with him accidentally sending a inappropriate photograph to a woman on his tweeter account, but accidentally made it available to everyone. Instead of fessing up he lied and said his account was hacked and then later admitted to it as well as other internet relations he had before and after he was married. Supposedly he never used devices provided by government or campaign money. Nancy Pelosi is calling for an investigation and he's being pressured to resign from office, which he refuses to do.
