But the Conquered, or their Children, have no Court, no Arbitrator on Earth to appeal to. Then they may appeal, as Jephtha did, to Heaven, and repeat their Appeal, till they have recovered the native Right of their Ancestors, which was to have such a Legislative over them, as the Majority should approve, and freely acquiesce in.

Anthony Weiner

As the worm turns, Weiner’s story seems to unravel.  The more we learn to be true, the more questions are raised.  Here are my observations: 
1)  How many photographs exist of YOUR crotch?  How many of those photos are on your computer?  Perhaps you are not sure, and you’re thinking, “well, I haven’t taken any photos of my crotch...but maybe someone else has taken photos of crotch.”  Fair enough.  Have you ever let someone else take a photo of your crotch?  Is it possible that someone has surreptitiously taken photos of your crotch?  Could such photos be on your computer?  

2)  Why, exactly, is Weiner following a 21-year old woman in Seattle via Twitter?  

3)  It is a serious issue if someone has hacked into a computer or account of a Congressman.  That’s not a prank.  If it happened, it should be reported to the authorities as a crime and investigated.  If Weiner is being set-up or framed by political opponents, doesn’t it serve his purposes to have such people brought to light and justice?  What kind of bonehead would let such an opportunity to defeat his enemies slip by?

4)  I think the best reason supporting Weiner’s decision to hire a lawyer and NOT report this as a crime is because he wasn’t hacked, and to report it as a crime would itself be the crime of making a false report to the police.  The assumption here is that the police would quickly uncover the fact that Weiner intentionally sent the photo.

Weiner is buying time right now.  Perhaps the “security team” he has hired is working to erase his cyber-tracks - if at all possible.  That’s purely speculation, but I suspect that if in all the security work that team is doing, if a hard drive were accidentally destroyed, it would make a thorough investigation that much more difficult, if not impossible.  I would guess that once his team achieves that, Weiner will acquiesce and invite an investigation, just to set the record straight that.  

UPDATE: Breitbart is on the case.
