Anthony Weiner’s Twitter Scandal
Posted on Tuesday, June 14th, 2011 at 12:43 pm
President Obama in an interview quite directly hinted at Anthony Weiner’s resignation. Weiner is a representative of the Congress and has also served in the House of Representatives since 1999.
Weiner accidentally sent an indecent photograph to his female follower on twitter. He wanted to send it as a personal image but by mistake tweeted it publically. He then when on to lie about it and claimed that his account had been hacked and somebody else had used his account.
He immediately had deleted it but then many, including the President and the female follower who was the recipient maintain that he must resign from office. Obama, quite rightly, feels that if one engages in such practices at a time when you hold a responsible position, your efficiency would automatically get affected.
Anthony Weiner confessed that lying about the story was a mistake and sticking to it was a bigger mistake. Though he has apologized not many have taken his apology in the best of spirits.
