Anthony Weiner Hires Lawyer

Anthony Weiner Lawyers Up, Anthony Weiner Hires Lawyer After Twitter "Prank": Devin Dwyer (@devindwyer) Reports:   Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., has hired a lawyer 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.    

A spokesman for Weiner said the congressman is exploring “civil or criminal actions” in response to the incident, which he called a “prank.”  It’s unclear whether the office has also requested an independent investigation.

The twitter post, which appeared Friday night and was quickly deleted, was first reported on by conservative website Biggovernment.com

“I was hacked. It happens to people,” Weiner told CNN Monday night. “This is a prank, not a terribly creative one, and it’s a distraction.”
