Wienergate – Weiner Now Leading Candidate for Dbag of the Year

So, I wrote about Weiner’s Wiener-gate just a few days ago.  It didn’t take long for Congressman Anthony Weiner to come out and admit that he was lying about his account being hacked.  As everyone had suspected from the beginning, Weiner did sent the dick-pic, and then lied about it.

It turns out that Weiner, a married man, had “inappropriate communications” with a number of women (six!), and had sent pictures of his shirtless chest (along with other pics) to another woman.  Now, the proper thing to do in this situation is 1) admit you did it, apologize and then  2) either resign or beg for forgiveness.   Earlier this year another NY Congressman, Chris Lee, was caught sending shirtless photos to a woman on Craigslist.  He resigned.

I wouldn’t be quite so Bajungi Tilted by this issue if Weiner hadn’t first lied about reality here.  If he’d come clean right away, admitted that he’s screwed up, and said that it wouldn’t effect his job as a U.S. Representative, that might be a different story.  Once he lied, though, eff him – he must resign.  As of now, he says he will not resign. But it gets better:

“House minority leader Nancy Pelosi announced that she would call “for an Ethics Committee investigation to determine whether any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred.”

File this one under CAPTAIN OBVIOUS.  Do you remember the scene in Usual Suspects, where Kevin Pollack’s character, Todd Hockney, is being interrogated, and the cop says, “We can put you in Queens the night of the hijacking.”  Hockney replies, “Really? I live in Queens. Did you put that together yourself, Einstein? You got a team of monkeys working around the clock on that one?”

That’s how I feel about this “Ethics Committee investigation.”  Are you fucking kidding me?  Do we NEED a team of monkeys to determine if it’s a violation of ethics for a married United States Congressman to send inappropriate pictures of himself to six different women over a period of years, culminating with an accidental full Twitter dick-pic blast WHICH HE THEN LIED ABOUT?  Do we need an explicit House Rule that says:

You may not send dick pics out on Twitter and then lie about your account being hacked?”

Sheesh… Ethics Committee investigation: our tax dollars at work.
