[CNEWS] Rookie PC candidate George Lepp says he’s embarrassed that a photo of his family jewels was posted on his campaign Twitter account for about 20 minutes before it was quickly unzipped. Alan Sakach, communications director for the Ontario Conservatives, said the photo was inadvertently taken by Lepp’s BlackBerry when it was in his front pocket. The photo was posted after someone took it from the candidate for the riding of Niagara Falls, Ont., according to Sakach. The pictures – too graphic to reproduce – are of a man naked from the waist down, showing a close up of his penis and his crossed legs. Sakach said the device was operating on camera mode in his front pant pocket when it went missing. He added that Lepp suspects it was taken as he was jostled by protestors outside the Dixon Rd. convention centre where the Tories met for the party’s weekend convention. Sakash said he didn’t know if police were called about the stolen BlackBerry. ”It was an unfortunate circumstance,” Sakach said Sunday. “This is pretty low and juvenile, and we don’t believe it is politically motivated.”
[NY Times] Representative Anthony D. Weiner, one of the most prolific users of social media among politicians, said his Twitter account was hacked this weekend when someone sent out a lewd photograph under his name to a young woman in Seattle. “Anthony’s accounts were obviously hacked,” Dave Arnold, a spokesman for Mr. Weiner, told The Associated Press. “He doesn’t know the person named by the hacker, and we will be consulting on what steps to take next.” Biggovernment.com reported that a sexually suggestive photograph of a man in underwear, shown only from the waist down, was sent to the woman in Seattle from Mr. Weiner’s Twitter account. “We’ve protected her name and her account, which was at one time verified to be active but has since been deleted after the photo in question was deleted,” biggovernment wrote. “Coincidentally, the rest of the photos in the congressman’s alleged yfrog account were also deleted around 11 p.m. Eastern.” Mr. Weiner made reference to the episode on Twitter. “Touche Prof Moriarity. More Weiner Jokes for all my guests! #Hacked!” He also wrote: “Tivo shot. FB hacked. Is my blender gonna attack me next?” “The weiner gags never get old, I guess, ” he said in an e-mail to Politico.
Big weekend for politics, peckers & Twitter, huh? Tough to decide which situation is more chock-full of bullshit though. I mean I don’t know how often Blackberrys automatically snap zoomed-in pocket penis Polaroids – or how that’s even possible unless Lepp’s got pockets made of Ziploc bags – but on the flipside I’m not buying for a second that Mr. Social Media ‘accidentally’ sent a Seattle slut a sexually suggestive shot. Don’t piss under my eyelid and tell me it didn’t come from your dong, Mr. Weiner. I see exactly what’s going on. If you’re such a Twitter pro you certainly know the ramifications of a weak-ass password & an out-dated Ad-Aware version. So no one hijacked your shit. A politician named Weiner sending a weiner pic to a random broad is the perfect way to get some pub, ain’t it? Even moreso, you got the perfect excuse. ”The weiner gags never get old, I guess”…EXACTLY. How easy is it to just pass the blame to some non-existent hacker as if this was all some practical joke? About as easy as it’s happening right now. Meanwhile, poor George Lepp gets his phone stolen and some menace makes public a private photo of his pole. Having a JPG of your junk is harmless. Who doesn’t, right? So yeah, his story about how the picture got taken isn’t exactly air tight but I’m pretty sure we can all agree he didn’t post it. Tony Weiner, on the other hand, is just punking us all…or at least trying to. Not your boy 610 though. Besides, anyone who knows anything knows you can never trust a politician with a wife this hot.
