Anthony Weiner has deemed a new Twitter-based scandal as nothing but a "prank," but the six-term New York Congressman has still hired a lawyer to defend himself against charges of sending a lewd photo to a 21-year old.
On Friday, the 40,000 people who follow Weiner were exposed to a photo of what appeared to be a man's crotch. (View the picture HERE.) The image was immediately deleted, before Gennette Nicole Cordova of Seattle could even view it.
Weiner says a hacker broke into his account and joked: "Touche Prof Moriarity. More Weiner Jokes for all my guests! #Hacked!"
Cordova has also chimed in on the incident, saying: "There have never been any inappropriate exchanges between Anthony Weiner and myself, including the tweet/picture in question, which had apparently been deleted before it reached me."
