Congressman Anthony Weiner says a lewd photo of a man in his underwear in an aroused state sent via yfrog on his Twitter account to a woman in Seattle is the result of his account being hacked. Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website reported the story Saturday.
“This evening a photo surfaced on Congressman Weiner’s yfrog account and in his verified Twitter timeline of a man in his underwear with an erection,” Publius, the handle for the site’s editors wrote. “The photo was reportedly sent to a woman on Twitter. We’ve protected her name and her account, which was at one time verified to be active but has since been deleted after the photo in question was deleted.
Weiner has so far handled this with typical wit and good humor:
“Thanks to all my new followers im drawing close to Bachmann. #ScrappyChasingCrazy,” he wrote at 6:35 p.m. Saturday, in the last posted tweet.
