#1 - Anthony Weiner/Weinergate
The Congressman from New York said earlier this week that his Twitter account had been hacked. The claim came after a suggestive photo of a man in gray underwear was sent to one of his followers. Now Weiner says he can't say with certainty that the photo isn't him! Weiner sat down with CBS' Nancy Cordes for a one-on-one interview. Here's an excerpt:
Cordes: "So it sounds like it was a photo of you."
Weiner: "Well we're going to try to find out exactly what happened. // The photograph does not look familiar to me but before I say anything I want to make sure THAT nothing was manipulated about it, that something wasn't dropped into my account."
Cordes: "I think any normal person could say with certainty whether it was a picture of them or not. Whether they had taken a photo like that."
Weiner: "Well you know Jon Stewart might have had it right last night. That the picture didn't look like me for embarrassing reasons."
The Congressman has not asked Capitol police or the FBI to look into the hacking. He calls it mischief and says he's treating it that way.
