TMZ Releases New Weiner Photos

Just when you thought it was safe to back on the Internet, TMZ has released a new batch of photos sent to various women by Congressman Anthony Weiner:

Rep. Anthony Weiner took several pictures of himself grabbing his privates, part of a new batch of embarrassing photos that surfaced online Sunday morning.

The gossip website posted 11 photos it claimed were taken in the House member’s gym, a private exercise facility in the Capitol complex that is open to current and former lawmakers.

The photos show Weiner standing in front of a mirror, his BlackBerry pointed forward snapping shots of bare chest, often with just a towel draped over his genitals. There are also shots of him in the middle of the exercise room, with empty elliptical trainers behind him.

The online gallery of Weiner’s bizzare shots was posted the day after the New York congressman rejected calls from a slew of Democratic Party leaders for him to resign his seat amid the drip-drip-drip of a sex scandal that has captivated Washington and New York for more than two weeks now. Each day brings an embarrassing new revelation for Weiner, who said Saturday that he would take a leave of absence and seek professional treatment while he charts his next move.

One reporter on Twitter has said that Democratic sources have said that their own independent investigation indicated that there are many more photos out there. Wonderful.

    I think Howard Stern had it right when he said, (paraphrasing from memory,) This is a guy who didn’t like his life, so he blew it up.

    djeez guys, get a life, please. You see about as much on the beach here, or on shower adds. Now if he had stalked people, or molested kids, that would be different. But now it’s “shots of bare chest, often with just a towel draped over his genitals. “. Can’t the sane people please go back to discussing politics and strategy?????

    Such a distraction from his efforts to expose Clarence Thomas’s conflicts of interest.
