Rep. Anthony Weiner says he’s not going to resign. The New York congressman has been caught, literally, with his pants down by the online tabloid snoops who keep their eyes peeled for this kind of stuff. After several days of indignant denials, Weiner finally stepped up to the mike on Tuesday and admitted that he did in fact transmit several revealing photos from his Weiner collection to at least six young women he claims he never met.

Apparently, there was some money left over from the hush fund, since Edwards appeared in front of the federal courthouse sporting another one of those $400 haircuts he favors. No word on whether Arnold Schwarzenegger will appear as a character witness for Edwards. During his entire tenure as governor of California, Schwarzenegger secretly was supporting a love child sired with his housekeeper. Arnold recently revealed this unfortunate fact to his wife, Maria, who moved out of their mansion. The Governator reportedly has gone into hiding in Idaho. Over in Japan, the latest version of the Japanese government quietly admitted this week that three of the nuclear reactors at the Fukushima power station did in fact experience a “full meltdown” in the days after the earthquake and tsunami struck. This statement was issued after weeks of denials in which officials maintained the reactor cores […]
