You just can’t make this stuff up.
New Yorkers rush up to shake Rep. Weiner’s hand and tell him they support him after he is caught sending penis tweets on the internet.
They don’t care that he’s a lying cheating freak.
They support him.

Scandal-scarred Congressman Anthony Weiner took out his dirty laundry Saturday – and was roundly cheered by onlookers as he walked to his local dry cleaners.
The embattled lawmaker reiterated that he will not step down, even in light of revelations that he exchanged tweets with a 17-year-old girl.
“I have no intention at this time,” Weiner said outside his Queens home before walking to the laundromat. “This is ultimately a decision for my constituents.”
Weiner has been the center of intense political speculation – and the butt of countless jokes – since he admitted to sending lewd online messages to at least six women.
One of the recipients – a teenager in Delaware – is a minor and was interviewed by police Friday. She told cops that nothing inappropriate happened and no charges have been filed.
“She has spoken,” Weiner said. “I think the record is pretty clear – nothing explicit, nothing indecent, nothing inappropriate.”
Weiner emerged from his Forest Hills home and strolled down Austin St. toward Smile Austin Cleaners, flanked by camera crews as he dropped off a load of laundry.
Two people yelled “Don’t go Weiner!” while another shouted, “We support you.”
