For me lying is far worse than what he was up to- but being up to it while he was married, for me personally, that's not a positive character trait. Neither is it for the women who were doing it who knew he was married.
Totally agree.

In fact, if he had come clean in the beginning, he might have been able to stay in Congress long enough until a large part of his constituents was made up of people that have done dumb things online.
Many people I know who are younger than me have said ill-advised things or posted ill-advised pictures online. This will become less and less of an issue over time. Lying doesn't.

(I'm not talking penises, but drunk pics, badmouthing bosses/parents, etc.)

I get what you're saying but when you're in the public position that he was in, and put there by public majority decision..well it's just poor judgment multiplied so many times over. It seems he also had a consistent pattern of doing this-he was posting the pictures to specific people for specific purposes. Whether he just pushed a wrong button or not for that one pic- well it obviously went way beyond that, what he was doing in some of the other cases that have been made public. Just from what I know, I don't know all the details and I don't want to.

It's not as if he had a facebook page filled with a bunch of drunken partying pics. Or he was flirting with one person and got carried away.

But like I said, the lying did him in. All of that created the lying though. A tangled web.

OK, I just see your edit there Yes, penises are a whole different ballgame I'm watching the ballgame right now, not that one

I imagine the next generation will be less judgmental of a politician that posted nude/rude pics online, just like the current generation is less judgmental of a politician that admits to smoking pot.

Generalizing, but you get the idea.

Good point Kramwest1. Or what could happen is that the Internet becomes all pervaise that it is inevitable that all types of material find there way on-line.

Mr. Weiner:

After having learned of your sudden and compelled resignation from your Congressional post, I would like to make you an offer of employment at Flynt Management Group, LLC in our Internet group. As a Congressman, you are known for your intensity and perseverance. I believe that this attitude, combined with your service in the House of Representatives' Committee on Energy and Commerce, will make you a valuable asset to this corporation.

This offer is not made in jest. To show our sincerity, Flynt Management Group, LLC is willing to pay twenty percent more than your former Congressional salary, ensuring that your medical benefits would be equal to what you were previously receiving. While you will have to relocate to our corporate offices in Beverly Hills, California, we would pay for all relocation costs.

Again, I cannot emphasize enough the genuineness of this offer. We are a serious corporation which, as you know, has been heavily involved in the political environment of this country for over thirty-five years. Our key missions have consistently included the crucial fight of battling hypocrisy within the federal and state governments. Flynt Management Group, LLC and Hustler Magazine have been dedicated to decades of serious political commentary. Just as we do not undertake insincere political crusades, we do not make insincere job offers.

While this employment opportunity is being offered in large part due to your qualifications and clear passion for making a change, I feel that your unfortunate resignation is a prime example of unfounded political pressure and the hypocrisy that has invaded democracy in Washington D.C. I hope you will sincerely consider this offer, and I look forward to your response.

Sincerely,

Larry C. Flynt

And the news cycle moves on from Wiener to whoever the next cute, missing white girl will be.

YouTube - ‪Cable Nets Press 'Mute' When Pelosi Won't Talk Weiner‬‏

Cable news is run by terrible people

Yeah...having two alleged sexual assaults to your name is in a whole other category from tweeting lewd photos.

Maybe he's a Detroit Tigers fan

Or a Tiger Woods fan

Yes I'd say sexual assault > tweeting lewd photos

Did we ever get to know if Weiner sent his pix to underage females?
(That would be a degree of sexual assault in my book, too.)

All I read is that there was one online communication with an underage girl that was supposedly investigated and didn't involve lewd talk or photos. Yes to me that's a different matter, once it involves underage people.

here's the thing, he didn't know anyone's true age

second, once he put the full boner pic out, on the net everything is seen by everyone, he also shot pics in the Congressional Locker Room??

the Dems kept touting this guy as their most savvy, young and up-coming prospect that had mastered The Social Networking for the good of the party, to get the message out. He was their go to guy on 'Social Networking".

the guy is not a 21 year old college student, or even a 'marginal' celebrity, the allowances that some want to make for this guy are not warranted

(not that I have any opinions on this)
