At long last, the liar has been exposed. A little over an hour ago, Anthony Weiner admitted to having sent a sexually provocative picture to a college student and Twitter follower.
Over the past week, the liberal press has been telling us that we should be focusing on more important issues and not harassing the Congressman over this "nonsense". Weiner himself stated that his account was hacked, which - as we now know - was a bold-faced lie.
Some urged Weiner to begin a criminal investigation and prosecute the hacker. When the embattled Congressman refused to do so, we knew that something was wrong. He wanted to let the issue die on its own, and so did his pals in the liberal media.
But now the truth comes out. Weiner directed his staff to lie to the electorate and has been misleading us for the past week. Repeat after me: Anthony Weiner is a liar. Liar, liar, pants on fire.
But being the master of chutzpah that he is, he now refuses to step down. He may be lacking in honesty, but he certainly isn't lacking in audacity.
A couple of weeks ago, Republican Congressman Chris Lee was forced to resign for sending a shirtless picture of himself to a woman he met on Craigslist. But when it's a Democrat that does it, we should let the issue die, right?
A Republican Congressman resigned for texting a shirtless (and good-looking!) picture of himself, but a President who had oral sex with a White House intern - and lied about it under oath - remained in power. And I can only imagine the hysteria and shrieks that would have come from the liberal elite if Weiner, like Lee, were a Republican. Anyone who tells me that there aren't double standards in our politics is a moron.
Finally, a word of advice to Mr. Weiner: Your picture showed us that you're a real man. Now act like it, and step the hell down.
If you were not ashamed to photograph a crotch shot and send it to a college student, if you were not ashamed to mislead the public about it for a week, if you were not ashamed to instruct your staff to lie, now - at long last - have some shame and get out.
You have lost the trust of your constituents. You are a sly man, and I wonder what else you have lied about. Leave in peace, but leave now.
UPDATE: For the record, Weiner is a progressive liberal on domestic issues, including ObamaCare, but at the same time he seems to be a strong supporter of Israel (despite having married a Muslim woman). Regardless of the Congressman's political opinions, I still believe that his crotch shot and subsequent mendacity are entirely unacceptable.
