More photos of Rep. Anthony Weiner. Despite some Democrats insisting he should remain in place because GOPers who’ve had scandals are still there, it’s increasingly hard to see how he can continue to serve since he is truly becoming a major distraction in terms of news media because he’s obliterating his party’s other, more important messages.
He is the news story that keeps on giving and giving and his latest gift to the mainstream and new media is this, via TMZ:
Rep. Anthony Weiner took numerous photos of himself — clothed and partially nude — at the House Members Gym and sent them to at least one woman … raising questions about whether he used Congressional resources in his online exploits.
TMZ obtained the pics Weiner took of himself using his Blackberry and a mirror.
The site has one of the semi-nude photos of Weiner posted.
Congressional sources have confirmed with TMZ … the backdrop is indeed the House Members Gym in the basement of the Rayburn House Office Building.
TMZ has confirmed the pix were sent to at least one women online and, the site notes, the question “that’s dogged Weiner since his news conference/mea culpa is — did he use Congressional resources during his cyber affairs?”
