21 days after Weinergate first broke, the Congressman from NY finally resigned today. For the record – for me, it was never about the sexting or the pics. This was about the false accusations and the sociopathic lying of a man who was elected to hold the public’s trust. That trust was shattered three weeks ago. It never should have taken this long. (TMZ has confirmed that the heckler is in fact Benjy Bronk from the Howard Stern show).
For the best, most complete coverage out there on every step of this story, please visit Patterico’s site. It was Patterico who first reported the details on the 17yr old girl from Delaware with whom Weiner was communicating via Twitter. Hopefully, our research will continue on this part of the story and others to which it is connected. We have not been permitted to publish certain components, but perhaps this will change soon. We hope.
Also, this post from The Prudence Paine Papers entitled Weiner and the Teen is fantastic – a comprehensive look into the girl we’ve come to know anonymously as “Ethel.”
