Big Government Unleashes Latest Contribution to the Journalistic World: Weinergate

The Woodward and Bernstein wannabes at Big Government just broke their latest story of import: Weinergate. Wildly important, we assure you. An anonymous BG blogger posting under the handle Publius somehow got hold of a private tweet sent from New York Representative Anthony Weiner‘s account to a young lady Twitter follower of the Congressman. That tweet contained an image of an underwear-clad man sporting what appears to be a generous stiffy. Potentially big news, considering Weiner recently married longtime Hillary Clinton aid Huma Abedin.

Weiner claims his Twitter account was hacked, as was his Facebook account. Which seems pretty plausible, because as dumb as our politicians are these days, the majority of them have the sense not to tweet pictures of their junk to random girls they don’t know. That’s what email is for.

Mediaite spoke to a computer geek…err…expert, who argues that all signs lead to a hack. Reuters, meanwhile, was able to determine that the photo in question does not match the camera type that the Congressman has uploaded in the past.

Whatever the truth of the matter, Andrew Breitbart assures us Big Government will root it out.

We’re brimming with confidence in him.
