Update: Weiner stepping down.
This whole thing is getting weirder and weirder (and it started weird). Now there's this:
oiled up" as a teen.
Before this newest photo was released, Weiner had clung to power after sending explicit photos to several women and sending a message to a minor. He refused to leave office and instead took a leave of absence. Whether this is the final nail in his office's coffin is yet to be seen.
President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and most Republicans have called on the disgraced Representative to step down.
Ironically, when the scandal began, Democrats ran to Weiner's aid, blaming the tweet he sent of an aroused man on the "right-wing conspiracy." At the time, Weiner was glad to blame it on "hackers." He further blamed blogger Andrew Breitbart.
After Weiner's denials, many liberals trumpeted the conspiracy theory. Joy Behar quickly blamed it on people that "don't like" Weiner and Keith Olbermann was "sympathetic" to Weiner's plight.
However, last Monday at a press conference, Weiner admitted to sending the lewd photo himself. Afterwards, additional photos of a fully-naked Weiner have been released. Police in Delaware are also investigating a message that Weiner sent to a 17-year-old girl.
