"Police Investigate Weiner's Messages to Teenage Girl in Delaware"

The title of this post is the headline of this new exclusive FoxNews report, which gets started this way:

Police here are investigating direct online communications between New York Rep. Anthony Weiner and a 17-year-old girl and are looking for any other young women who may be involved, though the nature of the communications wasn't immediately clear.

The police probe comes as Weiner, who is married, fends off calls from both sides of the aisle in Congress for him to quit after he admitted to lying about his inappropriate online and phone communications with a half dozen women.  Weiner's interactions with the Delaware girl "were neither explicit nor indecent," Weiner spokeswoman Risa Heller said Friday night.

Two officers from the New Castle County Police Department arrived at the high school junior's home around 4:30 p.m.  Friday and asked to speak with the girl's mother about the daughter's contact with Weiner, the disgraced Democrat.  Another officer appeared at the home a short time later.  A FoxNews.com reporter was at the home when the police arrived.

The girl, whose name is being withheld because she is a minor, told FoxNews.com, "I'm doing OK." The police left the home after about 30 minutes, followed by the daughter and mother, who left in a separate car. It was not clear if the mother and daughter were going to continue the conversation with police at another location.

Sources close the student said the girl followed Weiner on Twitter after seeing him speak during a school trip to Washington on April 1.  Weiner, after signing on to follow the girl's Twitter feed, direct-messaged the girl on April 13, the sources said, though it is not clear what other communication the two may have had between or after those dates. Weiner no longer follows the girl on Twitter.

If Anthony Weiner in fact "sexted" in any signifcant way a teenager, his legal troubles may soon become even more significant than his political troubles.  And, as a political matter, I think it cannot be too good for Weiner that he is started to seem like the Tiger Woods of Twitter, if you know what I mean.

Why are we so dumb?

It is because we think Main Stream Media has anything to say.

Politicians pander to MSM. That makes them the dumbest creatures on earth, but it is absolutely necessary for their career.

We create false harms, false crime, lies (platitudes) that EVERYONE knows are absolute truths.

Welcome to Short Attention Span Theater.

This is why we are deteriorating. Public Indoctrination, uh, I mean Education.

Weiner may be a liberal idiot, but idiocy is not a crime or the USSC would be similarly charged for "half-truths".

Weiner's political decisions and votes are the crimes. This matter is lascivious, lawyer gotcha, about nothing. This is the feminist witch hunt in full coming after a male feminist running dog. Because everyone in this current generation will have behaved as he has, there will be puzzlement as to what the problem was. As we wonder about Victorians not allowing girls and boys to hold hands, or to go somewhere alone without 20 adult chaperons, so there will be puzzlement about this ridiculous feminist witch hunt. Nothing bad happened when we (the lawyers running this absurd, incompetent government) allowed black folks to drink from white people's water fountains. Until about 100 years ago, adulthood was at its biological landmark, the age with the ability to bear children, around 14. Ooh, the 17 year hussy says, "I'm alright." She survived Weiner's Tweet. This Tweet survivor will need counseling for traumatic stress disorder for years.

As we view the KKK antics of 1911 with wonder and disgust, so shall people of 2111 view the feminist antics of 2011.

Even though his politics are heinous, Weiner cannot resign now. He has to stand up to the feminist lawyers running this government and their male running dogs, even though he is himself a male feminist running dog.

SC defines himself as against everything and everyone (both modern feminists and Victorians, apparently), but he would be easier to take seriously if it were clear what, if any, period/group of people/philosophy he actually favored. Otherwise it's a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing.

In a previous post, I already stated that sending his unsolicited Weiner Schnitzel to another woman, even an adult one, would have merited a criminal charge that would ultimately result in a Level 2 Registration level in New York State. With the 17 year old, the way Internet sex laws have been evolving, he may even be looking at the predatory Level 3 designation, especially, if there is more than one victim.

Jay, I favor utility.

Show me the harm, and criminalize the act. Now, we have lawyer gotchas in mala prohibita with no external validation. These are pretexts to generate fees. Rent seeking is a synonym for armed robbery. If you refuse to pay your taxes, a man with a gun will help you do so. I do not oppose taxes. I oppose payments that generate no value.

The worthless, meaningless, unvalidated, arbitrary lawyer gibberish in the comment above this one is a good justification to arrest the entire lawyer hierarchy, give them an hour's fair trial, and execute them. Then, pass an Amendment excluding the lawyer from all policy positions in the executive, the legislature and the executive branch. This profession has supernatural beliefs, does not bother to validate its ghoulish human experiments it carries out in the law, fails to protect the public, and costs a $trillion. It has also eliminated our natural economic growth. It is in utter failure across the board, and is taking down our country. The mortgage crisis? Caused by lawyers. 9/11. Caused by lawyers. 99% of crimes. Caused by lawyers. Destruction of the family. Caused by lawyers.

The lawyer profession is a criminal cult enterprise that has totally infiltrated our government and makes 99% of the policy decisions. We decry corruption in Mexico and elsewhere. We have gone beyond bribes of officials by organized crime. We have turned over 99% of government to organized crime, a criminal cult enterprise that believes in mind reading, future forecasting, and standards of conduct set by fictional characters. They are crazy, stupid, greedy, and impossible to get rid of from running government. Like any mob takeover, they are just plundering, and not providing government services.

Jay: The murder rate may not be 17,000 a year. There are 100,000 missing persons cases never resolved a year. The murder rate may be 70,000. Most major violent crime is going unanswered by government. Only 10 percent is ever prosecuted. Major violent crime has been nearly immunized by the lawyer running the criminal law.

When detectives are visiting victims of weewee Tweeting, and the poor victim is bravely bucking up, consuming media attention, I feel a little frustrated. When Weiner votes to allow masses of illegal aliens to flout the law, and no one may touch them, when he votes for Commie Care takeover of health by a horrible, incompetent, unfeeling federal bureaucracy, those are acts of treason. When he Tweets his weewee, that is nothing.

SC -- Don't you think people get the government they deserve?

No. The sistema is rigged airtight by the cult criminal.
