Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner is consulting  lawyers after it was reported that the New York congressman sent a racy photo to a female college student from Seattle via Twitter.  Weiner has claimed that his Facebook account was hacked and that, while the photo did appear on his Twitter feed, he did not send it. The photo shows a man’s erect penis outlined in a pair of tight boxer briefs. The photo , first published by Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment,  An analysis of a screenshot of the congressman’s yFrog account, which was published by BigGovernment, shows the image was manipulated, according to the progressive blog DailyKos. The screenshot was allegedly altered to make it appear that the racy photo was associated with Rep. Weiner’s account. Another DailyKos blogger has suggested that nearly the entire incident was fabricated by a conservative Twitter user.

You can get an idea of the radical right’s vitriol here.

    Check Mediaite from yesterday. The image was not manipulated.

    Breitbart’s own interview on CNN makes it pretty clear that Andrew Breitbart intentionally spread a malicious rumor.

    I suspect this is going to court… wonder how big a slander suit Mr. Breitbart’s rich buddies want to pay for?

    No censorship, just .. as it says, waiting for me to have time.
    as for “left,” sorry bubbelah but your assumptions are .. as they say ..sooooooooo wrong.

    TA is a open to all. I only censor obvious spam.

    I also invite anyone with enough intellect to write as a contributor and get yelled at regularly by libruls for being to conservative.

    In my own view, I just try to be rational.

    As for Anthony Weiner … so far the WORST he is charged is lust and flirting. The sad thing about the right and Brightbat is that it has no more emaningful subject to focus on. Us patriots do understand …. the right is not really conservative today. No rational conservative can win a primary when folks like Brightbat, Palin, Angle, are actually takne seriously.

    I actually feel sorry for the smart righties I do know. One occasional contrib here is actually a Friiedman protege but he has no where to go on the right.

    In the meantime, if pix of Weiner’s undies turn you on, I am sure you can find more titillating websites than TA!
