Anthony Weiner Hires Lawyer After Twitter "Prank"

The Associated Press reports that Anthony Weiner (WEE'-nur) has hired a lawyer to investigate what steps to take regarding a lewd photo sent from his hacked Twitter account. Weiner spokesman Dave Arnold says the Democrat believes it was a prank. But he's retained a lawyer to advise him on what civil or criminal actions should be taken.

The decision came after after a lewd photo of an unidentified man was posted to his twitter account and directed at a 21-year-old female college student from Seattle. Anthony Weiner (WEE'-nur) dismissed the picture, saying his account had been hacked and writing on Saturday in a Twitter message. “Actually, I became a fan after I saw him demolish Bachmann on Hannity about 2 months ago,” the post says. “It was great.”

Dave Arnold told The Associated Press in an email that the tweet, directed at a woman, was "a distraction" from the married New York Democrat's "important work representing his constituents." The congressman later joked about it on Twitter, asking whether his kitchen blender would be next to “attack” him.

The post was swiftly deleted, and the New York Democrat soon Tweeted that his account had been hacked. "More Weiner Jokes for all my guests," he Tweeted.
