FOX News reported:
Rep. Anthony Weiner, in an interview with Fox News, said Wednesday he’s certain he did not send a lewd photo of somebody’s bulging underwear to a college student via Twitter. But the congressman repeatedly declined to say whether the picture was an image of him.

The congressman, who described the incident as “mischief,” continued to allege that he was the victim of a computer hacker. He said he’s asked an Internet security firm and a law firm to take a “hard look” at the incident and find out what happened, though he suggested he doesn’t want to make a federal case out of it. He said somebody is just trying to distract him.
“I know for a fact that my account was hacked,” Weiner told Fox News. “I can definitively say that I did not send this.”
He also said he “certainly” does not know the college student the image was sent to — though, when asked repeatedly, Weiner declined to say whether he was shown in the image.
