Rep. Weiner Consulting With Lawyers After Racy Picture Credited To Him By Andrew Breitbart's Site

It's about time that someone fought back against the fabricated political scandals that are so often aimed at liberal Democrats, and the right-wing sites like Big Hollywood that so eagerly report them. Good for Rep. Weiner! I hope his attorneys find grounds to sue. Via Raw Story:

Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner is consulting with his lawyers after it was reported that the New York congressman sent a racy photo to a female college student from Seattle via Twitter.

"We’ve retained counsel to explore the proper next steps and to advise us on what civil or criminal actions should be taken," Weiner spokesman Dave Arnold told The Daily Caller in an email. "This was a prank. We are loath to treat it as more, but we are relying on professional advice."

Weiner has claimed that his Facebook account was hacked and that, while the photo did appear on his Twitter feed, he did not send it. The photo shows a man's erect penis outlined in a pair of tight boxer briefs. The photo was first published by Andrew Breitbart'sBigGovernment.The photo was quickly deleted along with all the other photos on the congressman's yFrog account.

[...] An analysis of a screenshot of the congressman's yFrog account, which was published by BigGovernment, shows the image was manipulated, according to the progressive blog DailyKos. The screenshot was allegedly altered to make it appear that the racy photo was associated with Rep. Weiner's account.
