Concerned Women for America Presents its Latest "Cave"man Award to Representative Anthony WeinerIt’s a no-brainer, really. After news reports of Rep. Anthony
Weiner’s (D-New York) sending a sexually explicit photograph to a young woman via Twitter, the congressman indignantly
raged against anyone who thought that he would do such a thing. He claimed his computer was hacked.
The Coveted Prize
Robert D. Hays, Jr.FAQ: Why King & Spalding?
King & Spalding is the firm that, after accepting the offer to represent the House of Representatives in defending the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in court, crumbled under the pressure from homosexual activists and dumped the representation and one of its most prestigious partners, Paul Clement
. Such an unprofessional act of cowardice deserves to be immortalized, and we do so today with this award. We give the award whenever some public figure excels in the art of failing to do the right thing under pressure.
Then again, that would require an
investigation, so it wasn’t really a hack, it was a just a prank that no one
should pay attention to.
One small problem though. More inappropriate pictures of Rep.
Weiner came out, and now several women claim to have similar relationships with
the representative. Oops!
In fact, Andrew Breitbart, who initially
broke the story, claims to have an x-rated picture that Rep. Weiner sent to one
of the girls. Some reports even
claim that some of the girls are actually minors.
Weiner was then forced to
“Last Friday night, I tweeted a photograph
of myself that I intended to send as a direct message as part of a joke to a
woman in Seattle. Once I realized I
had posted it to Twitter, I panicked. I took it down and said that I had been
hacked. I then continued with that
story — to stick to that story, which was a hugely regrettable mistake.
“To be clear, the picture was of me, and I
sent it. I am deeply sorry. … I’ve
exchanged messages and photos of an explicit nature with about six women over
the last three years. For the most
part, these communications took place before my marriage, though some have sadly
took place after. …
“I haven’t told the truth, and I’ve done
things that I deeply regret.”
Tears fell from his eyes, as the impassioned
congressman gave his seemingly heart felt apology.
And now that he has shamed everyone associated with him, and especially
the position of trust he holds, of course, he is stepping down. … Oh
Do you expect to stay as congressman, or
should you go ahead and resign?
Weiner: I am deeply regretting what I
have done, and I am not resigning. … I have made it clear that I accept
responsibility for this. And people
who draw conclusions about me are free to do so. I’ve worked for the people of my district
for 13 years and in politics for 20 years, and I hope that they see fit to see
this in the light that it is, which is a deeply regrettable
So for failing to do the honorable thing, even after he is caught lying to his
family, other Members of Congress, his staff, his friends, and the American
people, Rep. Anthony Weiner is the distinguished recipient of Concerned Women
for America’s June 9, 2011, “Cave”man Award!
