In a press conference this afternoon, Rep. Anthony Weiner tearfully admitted that the infamous Twitter pic that he denied showed his penis really did the whole time. The announcement comes after more than a week of media frenzy surrounding it.

He states that he was embarrassed during the whole fiasco, and first and foremost apologizes to his wife and family, and then to his constituents and supporters. "It was a destructive thing to do," he said during the presser. Among the other "dumb things" he's done is, in the last three years, carrying on sexy text-based exchanges with about six other women, having racy conversations over "Facebook, Twitter, email, and occasionally over the phone." He denies ever having met with them personally, though.

People make mistakes and do stupid shit sometimes. I'm don't live in an area where I can vote for him, but I still would vote for him if I could. How gives a shit what he does in his private time? All I know is he's one of the only people in congress who calls the rest of the congress out on their bullshit and we need that. We need a lot more of that, really.
