Anthony Weiner: I Tweeted That Picture

BlogHer Original Post

Saying, "I'd like to make it clear that I have made terrible mistakes that have hurt the people I cared about the most, " Congressional Representative Anthony Weiner confessed in a press conference today that he intended to DM a lewd picture of himself to a young woman "as a joke," realized that it had gone out to his public Twitter stream, panicked, and blamed it on a hacker. He also admitted he has had "inappropriate conversations" via social media with six women, but insisted he used no government resources to do so and that he would not resign.
