Democrat Politician Who Tweeted Out Porn Has a Novel Explanation: "I Was Hacked"

I've never heard that claim made before.

He also added a cutesy joke after saying he'd been hacked: "Darn Those Russians!"

I haven't see the Serious Allegation of a Violation followed up, incongruously, by the lighthearted joke maneuver before, either.

#AtLeastTheToasterIsStillLoyal

After his #Hacked account retweeted the porny photos, he says he "immediately" began un-retweeting them.

This is a bit odd, because when an account is #Hacked, it generally means it is now under the control of someone else, which means the authorized user is locked out of it, and therefore unable to un-retweet anything.

Notice his jokey "It was a bad Monday" demeanor below.

This all seems so terribly familiar.


Despite this looking very Weineresque, there are a couple of things that suggest maybe his "hacked" claim is on the level.

He claims that he was un-retweeting even as his "hacker" was tweeting. If that timeline is legit, it would suggest a hacker, because if someone accidentally retweeted porn, they'd just do it the once or twice, not repeatedly, like they were on a mission.

Also, he claims he will filing a complaint with police (actually, he said he'd do so yesterday). Bringing in the cops is something Weiner didn't do, for good reason.
