21 days after Weinergate first broke, the Congressman from NY finally resigned today.  For the record – for me, it was never about the sexting or the pics.  This was about the false accusations and the sociopathic lying of a man who was elected to hold the public’s trust.  That trust was shattered three weeks ago.  It never should have taken this long.  (TMZ has confirmed that the heckler is in fact Benjy Bronk from the Howard Stern show).

For the best, most complete coverage out there on every step of this story, please visit Patterico’s site.  It was Patterico who first reported the details on the 17yr old girl from Delaware with whom Weiner was communicating via Twitter.  Hopefully, our research will continue on this part of the story and others to which it is connected.  We have not been permitted to publish certain components, but perhaps this will change soon.  We hope.

Also, this post from The Prudence Paine Papers entitled Weiner and the Teen is fantastic – a comprehensive look into the girl we’ve come to know anonymously as “Ethel.”

Ginger Lee 6-15-11Holds Live Press Conference in NY to Complain About…All the Press

From the LA Times, Top of the Ticket, by Andrew Malcolm:

Amid all the chaos and confusion of Rep. Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal, somehow Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred got connected with one of the New York Democrat’s female electronic correspondents.

And today, the pair opted to call a news conference in New York to announce that they would really like to avoid publicity and get on with their private lives.

Because Weiner has refrained from publicly texting his whereabouts and desires the last couple of days, times were slow on the power/sex news front. So, fewer than several hundred news media showed up at the Friars Club to watch the shy women enter down a spiral staircase.

Weiner’s texting partner is a Tennessean known as Ginger Lee. She is a former porn actress and what Allred calls a “featured dancer,” who is studying to become a real estate agent and likes long walks on the beach. We made up that last part.
