Rep. Weiner

YES, the Penis Bulge is Mine

6/6/2011 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NY Congressman Anthony Weiner just confessed ... he IS the owner of the penis in the infamous  underwear pic and accidentally posted it on Twitter while trying to send it to another woman -- and he WON'T be resigning.

Rep Weiner

Weiner addressed the media in Manhattan this afternoon to take responsibility for the picture -- telling reporters, "The picture was of me, and I sent it" ... and he planned to send it to another woman.

The congressman says he will not resign from office because of the scandal -- and plans to return to his work following the conference.

As for his explanation, Weiner says he accidentally posted the pic to his Twitter account last month -- panicked when he realized what he did ... and falsely claimed he had been hacked.

"At the end of the day ... I lied because I was embarrassed."

Weiner adds, "I take full responsibility for my actions ... I have made terrible mistakes. I have not been honest with myself, my family , and my constituents."

According to Weiner, he engaged in several "inappropriate conversations" online -- and exchanged sexually explicit photos with "at least six women."

Weiner adds, "I have never met with these women, nor have had physical relationships at any time."

Weiner says he and his wife don't have plans to split over the controversy.

I wonder if they'll release the pictures of what the women sent him back b/c you know they were exchanging photos? I think if you're gonna out the goose, you need to out the gander too.

Forgive him IF he came clean from the get-go, not after he gets caught with other pictures he sent and other women. We don;t need another pervert in Congress. RESIGN!

I am so sick of these politicians and their lies. One who comes to mind is John Ensign,a Republican whose lie cost his parents $98,000 to cover it up. He was having an affair with a staff person. Now we have this incident. On both sides our politicians are s***bags. We elect these people to office and we should be able to get rid of them too.

He should resign. He's a liar, he's a hypocrite, he used govt computers and accounts for this pervert BS, if he lied to his wife for the year there is nothing he says from now on can ever be trusted or taken seriously.

On top of that if he doesn't resign he makes ALL the Democrats look like hypocrites - they demanded the Republican guy in upstate NY resign and he did THE SAME DAY he was caught.

What is it with Dems, they need a week to keep doing the pervert stuff until its too late and then they still keep their seats?

Between him and dem Congressmamn Barney Frank admitting he put his boyfriend in a high ranking Fannie Mae executive position while Barney was screaching we needed to keep giving out bad housing loans, now this...

I voted Dem for decades - NEVER AGAIN.

The on going phrase from now should be "PULL OUT, ANTHONY!"

What a farce that he wont and isn't being forced to resign ! If this was a Republican the media and the liberals would be so called outraged, and the news channels would be all over him. Typical liberal bias...just look at the votes here on tmz. The guy is a frickin 100% creep ola. What a joke. He and Barney Frank, Charlie Rangel and should be booted...but not in this liberal media frenzy. Disgusting. What a team you democrats have lol. The creeps...

He seems genuinely sorry. He also seems to understand the gravity of what's he done. But the coin you pay for your actions doesn't always stop with the act of apologizing. His dishonesty will, and should, have separate ramifications. Those are up to his wife and his constituents. Good on him for manning up...but that isn't always the end of the story.

To Ray, you look pretty young. In your 20's? Get back to me in about 20 years and see if you can say the same thing. I have had all kinds of men hit on me since I was 14. Married, religious and married, teachers, husbands I babysat for when the wife wasn't around. I could go on but you get my point. Men are different behind closed doors. As someone else said, it's not about loving the person you are with. Men are really good at keeping that side of them seperate. Doesn't make all men bad, it is in their nature. Going WAY back men have always cheated, women too, but majority men. I wouldn't go as far as to say every single man, but most of them. Just because you haven't been in the situation yet that you haven't been able to resist doesn't mean you won't ever. Never say never because no one knows what the future holds.
