I Totally Called the Weiner Scandal


In my last post I said Weiner was most likely lying. Turns out I was right. I was, however, nearly convinced by an Ars Technica article that explained how the photo-sharing service linked to Weiner’s Twitter account could’ve been hijacked by a trouble-maker.

The news cycle moves so fast these days, that Weiner is already facing calls for his resignation by top Democratic officials. I’m still not clear on how/when Weiner had these online interactions, but my first instinct is to treat this whole scandal as frivolous political theater. If Weiner did all this on his own time in his own home, then this is a matter between him and his wife. If he was lurking around on the Internet at work and used the resources of his office to do so, that’s a different matter.
