Weinergate Mom Outraged

by Andrew Stiles

From the New York Post:

The furious mom of the Seattle college coed at the center of Weinergate yesterday demanded that the cocky congressman come clean about the lewd photo.

“I’m really upset. I feel like he’s a person of power and influence, who can make a statement and make all this go away,” Carol Mizuguchi said, blasting Rep. Anthony Weiner for his continued snarky sidestepping.

“As her mother, I’m really upset,” Mizuguchi told The Post. “I’m pissed off at that.”

Mizuguchi’s 21-year-old daughter, Gennette Cordova, got the surprise package — a close-up of an underwear-clad crotch — over the weekend in a tweet from Weiner’s account…

“It’s a distraction [for Gennette],” she said. “It’s during her finals and she’s 21 years old.”

The aspiring journalist even dropped one of her classes in the wake of the scandal, according to a faculty adviser.

“She’s just trying to have a normal life,” Cordova’s mom said.

As the article goes on to state: “Cordova is one of 198 people, many of them pretty young women, that Weiner follows on Twitter.”

And after reading this, that doesn’t exactly come as a surprise (scroll down to last dozen or so paragraphs).
