Now Weiner's Captured in Bra, Stockings

What a drag. A new photo has emerged of Rep. Anthony Weiner strutting in a bra and black stockings. "Busted Wearing Women's Lingerie," screams the National Enquirer headline next to the photo slapped on the cover of yesterday's edition. The shot was taken Weiner's sophomore year at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. "It was never quite clear whether one of Anthony's challenges was to become a cross-dresser or if it was just some bizarre stunt he decided to do on his own," a classmate tells the Enquirer. "He was a very odd guy who went out of his way to do things purely for the shock value."

The pic comes just as House Democrats plan to get tough with Weiner in a bid to push him out the door, reports Politico. House leaders plan to meet today to decide whether to strip Weiner of his committee assignments, sources say. They had been waiting for Weiner's pregnant wife, Huma Abedin, to return from a trip to Africa with boss Hillary Clinton, hoping Abedin can add her voice to their pleas to Weiner to quit, according to sources.
