Rep. Weiner: Hackers Posted Lewd Photos

At least the alleged hacker had a sense of humor: A closeup photo of a man's bulging boxer-briefs was posted on New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner's Twitter account Saturday, followed by another tweet that read, "FB hacked." Weiner sent an email response to a Politico reporter saying, "The weiner gags never get old, I guess.” A website run by conservative activist Andrew Brietbart broke the news of the photo, and the site, biggovernment.com, said the photo had been sent to a woman whose account had since been deleted. Although Weiner deleted all his yfrog photos Saturday, he did tweet after the incident Saturday night.
