In a rare foray into a congressman's ethical conduct, Obama told NBC's "Today" show that Weiner's sexually charged photos and messages online to several women was "highly inappropriate."

"I think he's embarrassed himself. He's acknowledged that. He's embarrassed his wife and his family. Ultimately there's gonna be a decision for him and is constituents. I can tell you that, if it was me, I would resign," the president said in an interview to air Tuesday morning.

In what could be the final straw for Rep. Anthony Weiner’s political career, new embarrassing photos are surfacing — including one showing Weiner dressed in women's clothing.

The photos,show him dressed as a woman in a black bra, panties and leotards.

The explicit photos are expected to touch off a bidding war involving a number of media outlets.

“These new photos make Weiner’s current scandal even more disturbing,” said one industry source.
The fresh photos come as the New York Democrat is reeling from the disclosure that he sent a raunchy photo of himself in his underwear to a 21-year-old college student. Weiner now has acknowledged exchanging messages and photos ranging from sexually suggestive to explicit with several women online

On Sunday TMZ.com published new photos it had obtained of Weiner took of himself using his Blackberry and a mirror.

CBS News has confirmed through Congressional sources that the backdrop of the pictures - which show Weiner shirtless, in a towel - is the House Members Gym, in the basement of the Rayburn& House Office Building. Pictures were taken on the gym floor and in the locker room.

TMZ says the pictures were forwarded to at least one woman.

It takes two to tango, but Weiner was the one that sought out these women.This would be a non issue if he had not done that.He is the one who sent the pictures and should take full responsibility for his actions.

Hillary's Lesbian Affair with Muslim Aide?
I saw this tease tease teaser at Ace yesterday (no not this one) and knew it was just a matter of time before the bomb dropped. A sex scandal (woo hoo) of a top presidential candidate. Sounds salacious. Well it is. Check this out. No, no not this sex scandal, this one.
This is from Michael Musto. I used to read him religiously when he was at Paper a zillion lifetimes ago -- his stuff is legit.
Nothing has been confirmed (!) but this is as juicy as juicy gets in the sordid sex scandal department. Who'd a thunk that Hiillary could have out sex scandaled the old hound dog. Ouch!
Looks like Obama '08.
Boy those Democrats sure have been busy.

And if anyone would know, wouldn’t it be the reigning doyenne of downtown gay gossip and fashionista dish -Muchael Musto of the Village Voice:

As I recently said on MONICA CROWLEY’s radio show, whisper campaigns are claiming that HILLARY CLINTON is GAYLE KING–ing her aide de camp, the glamorous HUMA ABEDIN, an Indian/Pakistani goddess from Kalamazoo, Michigan. In other words, Hillary may be putting Huma out there in the press and purposely making her more visible as a pre-emptive strike that amounts to her hiding in plain sight. This way, no Republican can later say,“Who is this gorgeous babe who spends so much intimate time with Hillary that the Observer called her Hill’s ‘body person’? Was GENNIFER FLOWERS’s book right about Hillary’s sexual taste?” And does either of this couple have the balls to bottom?

Mickey Kaus writes:

Do you sense there is some large mass of dark matter, an unseen Scandal Star, the gravitational pull of which is warping the coverage of what seems, on the surface, a pretty dull presidential race? I do. So does Ron Rosenbaum. I thought the Dark Star was the Edwards affair allegation. But Rosenbaum says "everyone in the elite Mainstream media" knows about another juicy scandal that the LAT is supposedly sitting on. I guess this is proof that I’m not in the elite, because I don’t know what he’s talking about.… My vestigial Limbaugh gland tells me it must involve a Democrat, or else the Times would have found a reason to print it.… P.S.: If it’s just Richardson, that will be very disappointing.

Here’s a picture of Huma Abedin. Huma Abedin. Huma Abedin.

“I am close enough to Hillary and Huma to tell you that this ‘rumor’ is true,” the official says.“It is well known inside her campaign that Hillary and Huma are an item.

“If you call Hillary’s residence in DC first thing in the morning, Huma answers the phone,” the official continues.“Same thing late at night and on the road. It’s a closely guarded secret that Hillary’s inner circle guards at all costs.”

now that gop came out for weiner to resign, they had better come out against david vitter and reinvestigate the murder of the DC MADAM! The building manager, who did not want to show his face, talked with Palfrey Monday before she left for her mother's in Tarpon Springs. He strongly believes Palfrey's death was not a suicide.

"Jean Palfrey was a class act. She wore very good clothes. She was well educated. Her way out of this world certainly would not have been in an aluminum shed attached to a mobile home in Tarpon Springs, Florida," he said.

Palfrey was convicted of running a high-profile escort service for Washington's elite and faced a sentencing this summer that would likely lead to many years in prison. But she was found hanged Thursday at her mother's home and investigators said they have no doubt it was a suicide.

"A couple handwritten notes. At least one note was found inside residence indicating her intent to take her life," Capt. Jeffrey Young of the Tarpon Springs Police Department said of Palfrey's death.

Palfrey’s building manager said she often told him she believed she was being followed and he thinks there may have been some former clients of her escort service who wanted her dead.

"She insinuated that there is a contract out for her and I fully believe they succeeded," her building manager said.

Palfrey's Lexus is still parked in the Park Lake garage and the staff said on Monday, she asked about making sure her condo fees would continue to be paid during what Palfrey anticipated would be six years in prison.

They said she left that day with some suitcases and a box.

"She had one white paper file box that she told me had some important paper with her and then she just kind of raised her eyebrows like you're supposed to think oh yeah, that's all the information that she had on her business in Washington," her building manager said.

Palfrey never denied running an escort service for 13 years, but she did deny any knowledge that any illegal sexual activity was occurring.

So let me see if I have this straight. A victim, who receives offensive pictures, then comes forward to share their victimization, is no longer a "victim"? Is that the new message here?
