Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) told MSNBC’s Luke Russert today that he couldn’t say “with certitude” that the lewd photograph sent out last weekend on his Twitter account wasn’t a picture of him.
“That’s not a picture of you?” Russert asked Weiner in one of what was reportedly a series of interviews Weiner planned for Wednesday afternoon to address the growing furor over the photo.
“I can’t say with certitude,” Weiner responded.
Weiner went on to say that his computer was “hacked,” but added that pictures can be “manipulated.”
