Open Thread: Flashback to Weiner's Shameless Lies to ABC

Anthony Weiner finally came clean about Weinergate, but not before an interview with ABC's Jonathan Karl that ABC is pushing in light of Weiner's confession yesterday. In the tape, Weiner insists he is the innocent victim of a hoax and lectures Karl for assuming anything else.

The whole thing is a bit off-putting in light of yesterday's events. After Karl asks why Weiner was following a significant number of young women on his Twitter account, the congressman blows up at him for making "outrageous implications."

As Slate's Jack Shafer puts it, "by demonstrating that he’s as good a liar as he is an apologizer, Weiner tells us everything we need to know about him." Thoughts on his shameless lies to ABC last week?
