Weiner Reveals What Went Down

BY Nancy Scola | Monday, June 6 2011

And...it was him. Rep. Weiner says he indeed tweeted out the underwear shot, "meant as a direct message to a woman as part of a joke to a woman in Seattle."
Weiner says he's had similar contact with other ladies, "generally women that I met on Facebook."

As for that "hacking" story? "Once I realized I had posted to Twitter, I panicked, I took it down and said that I’d been hacked."
