Claim: Anthony Weiner Engaged in Sext-Chats As Recently as August 2012

After his 2011 fall, the allegation goes.

I'm linking Breitbart, but it was Arizona-based nightlife/gossip blog The Dirty which published the story. That link is middle-level NSFW, as it contains explicit texts.

The part thatís most annoying is that I was 22 and in a bad place, but if anyone asked him he would say the same thing about himself, yet heís an adult. This was a bad situation for me because I really admired him. Even post scandal, I thought he was misunderstood. Until I got to know him. I thought I loved him. Pretty pathetic.

Last August he even offered to help me get a condo in Chicago, without me asking. Iíll send screenshots of everything. Iím trusting you to keep my name out of it, because like I said, it was obviously a mistake. I was young and dumb. I just want people to really know heís lying when he acts like he has changed.

Is it true? Well, as of yet there is no evidence, apart from this source's say-so. She sent some alleged screenshots of a dirty chat, but they are undated; furthermore, it's anyone's guess whether or not it is Anthony Weiner.

Anyone can say they're anyone on the Internet, of course. And all celebrities get impersonated at some point. I just read that Randy Meisner, bassist for the Eagles, had a guy impersonating him in Vegas to get free rooms for a while. My point is you can be a somewhat obscure "celebrity" and still get impersonated. (In fact, I bet it's the less-known celebrities who get impersonated the most.)

So, take progressive celebrity worship with a progressive id borne of loneliness and anger and combine those with dude's ingeniousness and persistence in attempting to "score" (whether really or virtually) by any means fair or foul, and this could just be some guy who realized he could get some cyber if he said he was "putting on his Superman tights" and whatnot.

One detail that cannot be ignored: The guy's screen-handle, whether he's Anthony Weiner or not, is.... Carlos Danger.

Rock on, Carlos Danger. You inspire us all.

There is something that suggests this could be true. Combine Weiner's frequent statements that there might be "more" released about his amorous internet activities, with a "no comment" from his camp about the latest allegation:

BuzzFeed contacted Weinerís spokeswoman, Barbara Morgan, at 7:21 a.m. Tuesday about the postings, which went online Monday, asking whether they are real. She responded before 9 a.m. and then replied three more times that she would respond soon.

I don't want to pre-judge before knowing more than an unsubstantiated claim, but obviously Anthony Weiner knows the full truth of this, and if it's untrue, why didn't he say so straight out of the gate?

Why is his camp promising comment, and not yet offering it? The truth does not need to be coordinated. The truth does not have to be delayed in order to see what proofs the accuser might come up with. The truth does not need a meeting with strategists, lawyers, and crisis control messaging experts to discover itself.

Lies need those things, but not the truth.
