Woman Steps Forward with More Weiner Photos

Now it’s starting to make sense why Rep. Anthony Weiner was so reluctant to disown the lewd photo sent from his Twitter account. Another woman has stepped forward with more intimate pictures reportedly sent to her by the congressman, which Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism website is slowly trickling out today.

Unlike the picture that set off the firestorm, these leave little doubt that they were taken by the congressman. One shows Weiner mugging for the camera holding a piece of paper that says “me,” with an arrow pointing at his face. “The woman has indicated that Rep. Weiner allegedly sent the photograph after she asked him to confirm that he was taking photographs contemporaneously, in conjunction with their apparent online communications,” Breitbart writes. The second photo shows the congressman in a t-shirt lounging on a couch with two cats.

Weiner can still try to dismiss these as friendly photos he sent to a fan, but it sounds as if the other pictures Big Journalism is releasing later today will be increasingly devastating. “We will be updating BigGovernment.com and BigJournalism.com throughout the day with photographs, timelines, and other clarifying details,” Breitbart writes. “However, we will not be releasing all of the material because some of it is of an extreme, graphic nature.”

When you add this to The Daily’s scoop that the initial incriminating Tweet was sent from the same Twitter application as the congressman’s other Tweets that night, the “hacker” explanation is starting to seem increasingly implausible. If Breitbart’s cache is as bad as it sounds, the congressman’s problems are far from over.
