Update: Weiner's office issues a weenie statement.

Congressman Anthony Weiner's office has finally broken it's silence.  The congressman himself has asked for airtime on as many shows as possible to demand that the FBI and The Department of Homeland leave no stone unturned in their hunt for the evil criminal malefactor that hacked his Twitter and Facebook accounts and compromised the security of the United States House of Representatives.  In his typical red-faced rage Representative Weiner said, "It ain't my weiner and I'm outraged at the implication!"

Nah...just kidding.  Here is what one of his office flaks really had to say about the whole mess.  

“We’ve retained counsel to explore the proper next steps and to advise us on what civil or criminal actions should be taken,” Weiner spokesman Dave Arnold said in an email. “This was a prank. We are loath to treat it as more, but we are relying on professional advice.

Yep.  That's it.  Oh...and the congressman considers the whole thing a distraction driven by conservatives and "that I'm focused on my work."  (Remember after the famous Bill Clinton finger wag about "that woman...Mz. Lewinsky"when he gave that same "I have to get back to work for the American people" bullshit?)  

OK.  Let's get this straight.  Congressman Weiner is one of the most pugnacious members of Congress.  He was just, according to his own statements, hacked and humiliated.  Not to mention that as a representative of the peoples' house he is a VIP with a security clearance.  What was done, if what he alleges is true, is a very serious crime, not a prank.  Does Anthony Weiner really seem like the kind of guy that would just laugh off being the butt of a million national jokes?   When somebody hacked Sarah Palin's email account she immediately contacted the proper authorities, an arrest was made and the perpetrator was tried and convicted.  And what we get from Weiner's office is some namby-pamby-we're looking at our options- statement?   Put an "R" behind the congressman's name and take a guess how far that would fly with the press.  

What the hell is Weiner waiting for?  Congressman Weiner is not exactly a shrinking violet.  All the lefty blogs are accusing Brietbart and every other conservative they can think of of hacking the congressman, faking the picture and then driving the story.  So yeah, let's have a full investigation.  Why hasn't he called the FBI?  Did they take the weekend off?  

This is total bullshit.  Is it the end of the world if Weiner sent a picture of his hard-on to a coed?  No.  (Although it sure has kept yours truly highly entertained for the last few days.)  But if it was a Republican involved the mainstream press wouldn't be off at the beach for the holiday weekend.  

They'd be at a weenie roast.  And it wouldn't be fun for the roastee.
