Rep. Weiner has now admitted to sending the pictures. But he says he’s not going to resign. Many blogs were attacking Andrew Breitbart, including Little Green Footballs. Charles Johnson has refused to apologize for defending Weiner while helping to propagating the attacks upon Breitbart.
Rep. Weiner Admits to Online Relationships, Says He Won’t Resign
In a shocking press conference, New York Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted to conducting online relationships with six women over the past three years, and that he did indeed tweet a photo of himself to a woman in Seattle. He says that his claims that his twitter was hacked were a “hugely regrettable mistake.” Weiner apologized to his wife, family and supporters and said that he had no intention of resigning.
From Charles’s Johnson’s LGF:
And I’ve been getting a flood of hate mail, much of it demanding that I “apologize” for something. So here’s my official response to this demand:
Not a freaking chance. If Weiner admits to sending the pictures in question, I’ll be surprised and disappointed, but I’m never going to apologize for calling it as I see it.
And I’m certainly never going to apologize for pointing out that Andrew Breitbart is a sleazy fraudster, with a well-documented and very tawdry history of deception.
UPDATE: Here’s some of Johnson’s comments from his own blog:
This first comment, from an LGF reader, will give you an idea of how sure Charles was that Weiner was innocent.

re: #55 Charles
Perhaps Weiner’s people are giving Breitbart the rope he needs to hang himself?

Rarely have I felt this disgusted. Why are Weiner’s people letting Breitbart do this? Tell that clown to get away from the mic. [Because he was correct Charles]

Nope – Weiner did schedule the conference, and he’s reportedly about to speak.

Well, he’s copping to it. Game over. [Yes Charles, your game is over]
This is classic! A reader mentions that Charles was wrong about his yfrog theory, and Johnson has the balls to tell the reader, “you don’t know what you’re talking about.”… Ug… Charles will now start deleting people like crazy – just watch!

Except for the part that it is easy to find out the yfrog email address.
No, Buck. That was absolutely true. You don’t know what you’re talking about.

So when is Andrew Breitbart going to apologize to Shirley Sherrod for trying to destroy her reputation with a fraudulent video? [The same time you come clean about running with a false story]
