Debbie Downer: Wasserman-Schultz Calls For Weiner To Resign | Main | Police Conclude Investigation; Say They Expect No Further Comment Unless Situation Changes
June 11, 2011

Coversations Deleted
Another Prediction Comes True: Weiner Checking In For "Treatment"

Sex Rehab? Well, they say "treatment" for "inappropriate behavior." I say "sex rehab."

Link at Hot Air.

He's also taking a leave of absence. Some commenters speculated there was no such thing, and I said, "I'm inclined to agree with them."

But that was based on nothing at all. In fact, there is a Leave of Absence for Congressmen.

Just a reminder, speculation is often wrong. Sometimes being wrong is relatively harmless, as it is here. Sometimes it is more harmful.


Well, that's probably not the best sign.

Sources said much of the conversations between Weiner and the high schooler had been deleted from the girl's computer.

It's possible that still implicates the "manslaughter" scenario I've been favoring. Flirty, familiar, and overly-friendly tweets would look bad even if they didn't look criminal.

Further, the girl could be acting with an overabundance of caution.

Ban Warning: This is in the hands of the police and no further speculations about the private individuals in this matter are warranted. We will quickly know. There is no need to race to try to get "in front of the evidence," like it's the Belmont Stakes.

The suspicions are so obvious they don't need to be said.

Official last warning: Get off the girl. Talk about Weiner and his behavior. Further speculation about what is known and confirmed (like "sources' saying the conversations were deleted) is subject to immediate, no-further-warning ban.

Super Update: Gabe points out something I forgot: If Weiner deleted the Tweets on his side, they would also disappear from the girl's account.

Ergo, she didn't necessarily delete anything. Weiner might have helpfully deleted them on her behalf.
