#Vindicated!: Anthony Weiner Announces He Will Not Be Suing Ace of Spades For Defamation

Whew!

Well, he doesn't say that, exactly. But when we have confirmation the police have not been contacted, and Weiner is "loathe" to purse a "pranking," well well well well well, I tell you I just sighed a sigh of vindication.

You want a lawyer to advise you on the next step? The next step, after you've been the victim of a serous crime? You need advice on the next step?

How about from a blogger? Let me tell you the next step, free of charge:

CALL THE COPS, ASSHOLE.

I know, sounds crazy, but there's all sorts of precedent and caselaw on this sticky fact of law.

You're "loathe" to pursue this any further?

I bet you are.

And now it's "prank"? We went from #Hacked!, which well-nigh demands law enforcement intervention, to #Pranked!, which conveniently does not?

All that happened?

What a weekend. What a blessed weekend.

Yeah, don't call the cops. Do exactly what I predicted you would do two days ago: Retain a private firm to "advise" you. People you pay and control.

To say what you want them to say.

Damn, too bad the FBI doesn't have that kind of pay-for-play deal, huh?

Sure, I said he'd hire a private security expert, and he will do that; but for now, he's got himself a lawyer-- not to protect himself, you understand, just to suggest he might sue people for saying there was no hack.

Um, bluff called, dude. As Derek Hunter said:

Victims call cops.

Perps call lawyers.

So, thanks for the confirmation, feller.

As a funny Tweeter said (sorry, can't remember who), calling the police would only result in the classic horror movie reveal: We've traced the hack! And the hack is coming from... INSIDE THE HOUSE!!!


What are you doing here? Do you know how young this girl is?
I have an explicit tweet here -- no, let me show this to you.
It's a picture of a penis. Is this your penis?
What did you think was going to happen here?

Corrected: I got two ideas mixed up. In fact, CNN reported there was no police involvement, and that Weiner was "loathe" to pursue it. That was not the full foreswearing of LEO involvement I suggested. But... close enough.

Distraction? You have something better to do, punk, than bring down the "Teabagger" bloggers who "hacked" you? Isn't that your whole job? Isn't that what you do day-in and day-out in those stupid YouTube videos where you peacock around for your lefty moron fans?

Really?
