Weiner Says He Didn't SendTwitter Photo

Wednesday, 01 Jun 2011 02:01 PM


WASHINGTON — New York Congressman Anthony Weiner says he didn't send the lewd photo sent from his Twitter account.

Weiner, who on Tuesday angrily refused to answer reporters' questions about the incident, told MSNBC news Wednesday that he did not send the photo and that it was the work of a hacker.

Weiner is conducting a series of interviews Wednesday in an effort to put to rest the spectacle that ensued since a 21-year-old woman in Seattle received a photo from Weiner's Twitter account of a man's bulging underpants.

Weiner also told MSNBC's Luke Russert that he couldn't say "with certitude" that the lewd photograph sent out last weekend on his Twitter account wasn't a picture of him.

"That's not a picture of you?" Russert asked Weiner in one of what was reportedly a series of interviews Weiner planned for Wednesday afternoon to address the growing furor over the photo.

"I can't say with certitude," Weiner responded.

Weiner went on to say that his computer was "hacked," but added that pictures can be "manipulated."
