Weiner’s Choice

12:06 PM, Jun 09, 2011

I notice that when Congressman Anthony Weiner is asked about resignation—usually on the fly, generally while hurrying past a scrum of reporters—that aura of contrition quickly evaporates. “No, I’m not resigning,” he declares, and the narrowed eyes and pursed lips familiar to viewers of his C-SPAN tantrums are suddenly in evidence.

Weiner repeatedly refused to say why he wouldn't ask the authorities to investigate what he alleged to be an illegal "hack" of his Twitter account (he's now downplaying the "hack" as a "prank").
