Anthony Weiner Retains Counsel...Not To Defend Himself But To Advise Him About "What Civil Or Criminal Actions Should Be Taken"

Ok.

A spokesman for Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat, told The Daily Caller the Congressman’s team has “retained counsel” and is exploring the “proper next steps” after his official Twitter account posted a picture of a man’s erect penis underneath gray boxer shorts. The internet-driven scandal has come to be known online as “#Weinergate,” a pun on the Congressman’s last name.

“We’ve retained counsel to explore the proper next steps and to advise us on what civil or criminal actions should be taken,” Weiner spokesman Dave Arnold said in an email. “This was a prank. We are loath to treat it as more, but we are relying on professional advice.”

So in Wiener's World hacking multiple social media platforms of a sitting US Congressman in what's clearly an attempt to damage his reputation and limit his participation in debates of national importance is just a "prank"?

Most people would call it something else...a crime.

I'm not a high priced NYC or DC lawyer but allow me to offer some advice. Call the FBI.

Now in an effort to help out the Congressman in his battle to clear his name, here's how to report a cyber crime.

You're welcome.

On second thought, perhaps I'm being too hard on Congressman Weiner. I mean every PSA I've ever seen about crimes always urges people that if you are the victim of a crime or see one committed you should immediately call the cops retain counsel to help you consider your options.

I bet the idiot who illegally accessed Palin's emails wishes he'd picked on Weiner instead. She called the cops but apparently Weiner is more forgiving of being violated.

I think it's wonderful that Weiner is such a let bygones be bygones kind of guy but doesn't he owe it to the Comley Coed to bring the perpetrators of this 'prank' to justice for the anguish they've caused her?

If liberals are so sure this is an Andrew Breitbart or conservative hit job, shouldn't they be hounding Weiner to call the FBI? I mean if they could send a conservative to jail for something like this, it would be a big plus for them, right? I wonder why they aren't. Oh, right.

Transparency!

Weiner’s office did not answer specific questions about the photograph, whether he has contacted authorities or the Seattle woman who received the photograph.
