Of course he did, especially when he finally figured out that it wasn’t gonna go away.
And of course, you know Stacy McCain is all over this with plenty of updates and other links;
UPDATE5:24 p.m. ET: Why did he finally ‘fess up?
The announcement came as ABC News prepared to release an interview with Meagan Broussard, a 26-year-old single mother from Texas who provided dozens of photos, emails, Facebook messages and cell phone call logs that she says chronicle a sexually-charged electronic relationship with Weiner that rapidly-evolved for more than a month, starting on April 20, 2011.
See? He thought he could stonewall and spin as long as it was just him vs. a bunch of right-wing bloggers.
ABC News? Not so much.
As you would suspect, Ace is beside himself, seeing as how he stated from the beginning that Weiner was guilty as hell;
New Thread: “WERE YOU FULLY ERECT, CONGRESSMAN?”
I’d say that was a first for a press conference, wouldn’t you? Audio here; I’m told that was a member of Howard Stern’s Wack Pack.
So, in “coming clean,” he lied a whole bunch of times, and continued to evade.
ABCNews Reveals the Latest Woman, Or Is She Even The Latest? One of May’s two models (that we know about).
Breitbart #Hacks! press conference.
Chris Matthews: “He finally told the truth.” He did? We’re just accepting that? Again?
We’re just believing him again, huh?
Let’s See… All of the girls were “over 21” except for the Comely Coed?
And that was a… joke?
He sent her the same pic as a joke that he sends for cybersex?
And Dan over at POWIP has his take on it;
Weiner takes full responsibility, not resigning. He seemed genuinely remorseful.
He didn’t apologize to Breitbart, or Dan Wolfe, or any of the other people who got shit for reporting honestly on the story. UPDATE: Okay, he’s apologized to Breitbart and anyone else whom he misled or caused troubles for.
Prior to Weiner’s appearance, Breitbart arrived, and the press gaggle descended on him, asking that he take the podium. He used his access to CBS’s live feed to excoriate the MSM and the left-blogging liars, including Kos. It was kind of surreal.
If you missed it, make sure you see it.
Our friends at Pundit Press also have a bit on the story with video;
Some quotes from the Press Conference:
“I apologize to Andrew Breitbart.”
“Nancy Pelosi was not happy about this…she told me that she loved me.”
“I did a regrettable thing.”
On the women he was writing: “I did not know their ages.”
“I did it.”
“It was a mistake.”
After being heckled, in which someone shouted, “Were you fully erect or capable of more?” Weiner left the podium.
If Weiner had only remembered what his Momma had told him when he was a wee tot…Always tell the truth because a lie will always catch up with you
